Hank Derr's Classic 1962 Corvette was the winner of the Rocky Mountain District Foundation Fuels Kids Virtual Car Show which concluded August 1st. Congratulations, Hank!
 
The sale is scheduled to go on, with limited seating but also with virtual participation.  Please consider purchasing shares in the Kiwanis Investment Group, per the following email.
 
Good Afternoon Club Members,
 
It is that time of year again, when we support the work of Laramie County FFA youth at the Annual Kiwanis Livestock "Sale of Champions" (August 7th at the Archer Events Center). We are asking for your support in purchasing shares. Each share will help fund the purchase of an animal(s) at the sale; each share will be a maximum of $15.00 and proportionate to the number of shares sold to animals purchased. 
 
As you can imagine, this year has presented some pretty significant obstacles for youth in agriculture, please consider joining us in recognizing their accomplishments and supporting their continued hard work. Supporting is easy, please reply to kiwaadmsect@cheyennekiwanis.org with the number of shares you would like to purchase and that commitment will be added to your account.
 
Kind Regards,
Kiwanis Sale Committee
Tim still needs help, as of August 2nd.
 
Dear Fellow Kiwanians:
 
Below is the link to sign up to support the Farmers Market.  The market runs every Saturday from August 1st to October 3rd.  They could really use our help and would appreciate it if we could provide four to six volunteers per event--more are welcome!  As you'll note, shifts are four hours long, 6:00-10:00am and 10:00am-2:00pm.  Tasks include set-up; tear down; count visitors; patrolling the market and the perimeter to keep people from congregating in large groups and from jumping the fence.
 
 
Besides helping a fellow non-profit--Community Action of Laramie County--we see this as an opportunity to market our great club by wearing Kiwanis clothing--hats, shirts, aprons and spreading the word about our wonderful club!
 
Again, please sign up to help at the link above.  If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a shout at 307.631.5158 
 
Thanks much,
 
Tim Sheppard
Updated July 2.
 
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 at The Office suspended until further notice. 
 
Save the Date: Pat has scheduled an evening with social distancing at the Put Hut in Lions Park for 6 pm on August 12.
 
Updated 7/5. 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.  Call one of them to offer your help in planning the events. 
 
 
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.
