From Tim Sheppard:
 
Greetings fellow Kiwanians:
 
We've agreed to tackle three "Sprucing up Cheyenne projects" on Saturday, July 11th, from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Project details are listed below.  And yes, there will be donuts and coffee and, perhaps, pink bunnies!
 
1.    Weed shrub/tree beds, parking lot islands, around the picnic shelter, playgrounds throughout Romero Park - six people.  Leader:  TBD.
 
2.    Weed Lions Park islands from the Kiwanis Community House to the pool - four people.  Leader:  Kathleen Petersen. 
 
3.  Weed shrub beds at Buffalo Soldier and Randall & Snyder triangle parks - four people.  Leader:  Carol Holland. 
 
As it stands right now, we don't have many volunteers.  So, we really, really could use your help.  We've got to eat all those donuts!  Seriously, these are good projects and we do need your help.  Please let me or Tom Roberts know that you're willing to help.  307.631.5158, coltim3998@msn.com or troberts@hotmail.com.
 
Thanks,
 
Tim  
The semi-annual Sloans Lake and Highway clean-ups were accomplished on June 13 and June 20.
 
 
"Vanna" was out on the water...
 
 
and on local TV.
Updated June 24.
 
From previous Club meetings: Also note that several members have indicated they would be happy to help out folks who need some errands run. Contact President Brian or Rod Hottle if you would like some help.
 
And, finally, MEMBERS who are strapped for cash, remember that part of the Club's COVID-19 Relief Fund is reserved for such situations. See the application in the Download Files section of this homepage for more detail.
 
 
UPDATED 5/28.  During the virtual weekly Club meeting held on Thursday, April 16, President Brian announced a couple of COVID-19 related actions that have been taken by the Club Board of Directors. These initiatives are still in effect.
 
     1.  The Club and Foundation have established a COVID-19 Response Fund. Donations may be made to benefit local distribution points of Food Bank of the Rockies and to benefit our own members who may be having financial difficulties during the pandemic. This is a voluntary effort, not an assessment, designed to make a positive impact on the community. See the Download Files section of this homepage for information on how to give, or, should you be in need, the form you can use to apply for anonymous assistance.
 
     2.  To help out our members, the Board of Directors has voted to let YOU determine the amount of dues YOU pay each month during the pandemic.  Options include regular dues ($55 per month), After-hours rate ($20 per month) or Leave of Absence rate ($9 per month). When we go back to meeting regularly for Thursday luncheons, dues will automatically revert to $55 per month. For some members, this decision will be easy. Please remember, though, that the Club has fixed expenses that have not gone away, like heat, lights and the phone. Based on today's membership, we need an average of $23.32 per member per month to "keep the ship afloat" through September 30, 2020. See John Barnes to get this done.
 
_______________
We will be having virtual meetings at the regular time (Thursdays at noon) for the foreseeable future. See the email that is sent weekly to all Cheyenne Kiwanians for the specific URL and password for the Zoom meeting.  Contact President Brian if you did not get that email a day or so ahead of the meeting.
 
Updated 6/4. After Hours Club. Scheduled for the first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm, at The Office. Feel free to bring along prospective members.  Contact Pat RuddIn person meetings suspended until further notice.  However, virtual get-togethers are being planned.
 
Updated 6/3. Friday Food Bag. Unpackings and packings are on a limited schedule. Contact Tom Roberts to get the latest information.
 
Updated 3/30. Jim Coomes announced that he is planning interclubs with other clubs in the region. Contact him if you have any questions or would like to be considered for participation. This consists of four of our members going to a meeting of another club in our region and exchanging ideas. A meal, if part of the meeting, is paid for by our Club. This will require some time off work for those still in the work force because of travel time to and from the other meetings. Interclubs have been suspended.
 
Updated 3/30.  Lauri Osborne and Renee Brower are leading the 100th (Club) Anniversary committee. They are still asking for your ideas on what such a celebration should entail. 
 
Updated 3/13. Chocolate Indulgence is being postponed until sometime after the country's health emergency has resolved itself.
 
Updated 5/28. This year's Jeff Teasley Agency Kiwanis Foundation Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 26th, with a shotgun start at 9 am. Sorry! Cancelled!
 
In this difficult time our country is going through, the Cheyenne Kiwanis Foundation felt that it is important to take some extra time in evaluating the grants received to make sure we are helping those with the greatest and most pressing needs.  At this time the Cheyenne Kiwanis Foundation is postponing granting the awards until such time as our board can re-evaluate our position.
 
We are keeping all grant applications that have been received and will announce at some point the reopening of the process.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
 
To your good health
Denise Newell, Cheyenne Kiwanis Foundation President
Club/committee members who need propane tanks for their project area asked to first use partially full tanks, before they start a new one. Why? The fill charge for each tank, whether it is partially full or empty, makes no difference, is $75 per tank. The charge is a flat rate, with no proportional credit for topping off a partially full tank. It cost in the neighborhood of $825 when the tanks were last topped off, and much of that went toward topping off partially full tanks.
 
So, if you need propane, take and use a partially full tank and, if you think that may not be enough, take a full tank as a backup.
 
Your cooperation is appreciated by the Club's budget.
For the information of everyone who would like to loan out Kiwanis Club-owned equipment, please see the Download Files section to the left of this homepage and comply with the policy stated therein. The general ground rules and necessary loan request/maintenance fee sheet and indemnification form are included in this file.  Only requests accompanied by fully completed paperwork will be considered. This includes listing the stovetender, transportation and food you have arranged, and other considerations that must be made for the project to work.  The Quartermaster does not have the time to do all of the ground work for you. Your cooperation is appreciated.
 
 

Craig Hiett of AAMCO Transmission/Meineke Mufflers has started a Customer Loyalty Program for Kiwanis Club members.  A percentage of each Kiwanis Club member's auto repair bill will be returned to the Club's Foundation.  John Barnes has Customer Loyalty Program cards which you may pick up and use or you may just stop into either shop and mention your Kiwanis membership.  Please consider picking up a card today.
