The Annual Kiwanis Dinner and Melodrama will be held on Wednesday, July 25.  Dinner at the Warehouse will be at 5:30 and Melodrama tickets are for 7:00pm that evening.  Please note this is different from previous years.  The dinner and melodrama are on Wednesday, rather than Tuesday. Our special guest will be Rocky Mountain District Governor Haley Suppes.


Melodrama tickets will be billed to your Kiwanis account.  Below are the prices with the Little Theater discount.


Adults - $14.40

Seniors/Military - $12.60

Students - $10.80

Child - $9.00


Please send or call in your reservations by Tuesday, July 17.  Little Theater needs a firm count one week in advance.  Reservations need to be made to Patty Benskin at or by calling Patty at 638-1312 or 630-3545.


Editor's Note: You may attend either or both of the events. Whatever your plans, please let Patty know since she needs to know numbers for both.

Debbie LaFaso has long-sleeved shirts for sale with the "official" Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast logo printed on the back. Just the thing to show your club affiliation while working at the Frontier Days pancake breakfasts. They meet the safety requirement for the long-sleeved shirt if you are to be working anywhere near a grill, and give great protection from the sun's rays if you are working elsewhere. See her at Thursday's regular meeting, give her a call at 307-221-7378 or email her at .

The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club Foundation has been working to support construction of an accessible playground for all ages and abilities at Cheyenne's Cahill Park for four years now. Our Club's past President, Patty Benskin, has identified support of the project a priority for the Club as well.  
Every little bit helps.  And, if you can, consider a gift of $500 or more for recognition as a playground fellow. Thanks for your support.
The accessible play area, as it looked on April 27, 2018, being enjoyed by many kids.

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.
