Tim introduced Bill Anderson, County Commissioner and past Circle K member as his guest today.

Keith reminded us of the football game this weekend. It's the last game of the season, and we really need a few good people to help take tickets.

Don't forget Friday is Veterans' Day, so remember those in your life who have given service to our country.

Tim talked to us about the limited interest in hosting the children's activity room for the Christmas Stroll this year, and asked if people would be interested instead in setting up our trailer and selling hot beverages and bottled water to stroll participants. Shane is following up with people.

We also are looking for people to go to Sunrise Kiwanis or Butte Kiwanis next week for an interclub and to try to sell raffle tickets. Claude signed up for Butte next Wednesday at noon at the War Bonnet, and Tim is signed up for next Wednesday morning at Perkins for Sunrise. It would be nice to have a couple more people at each of those meetings.

Verna let us know that our menu for the Thanksgiving week meeting is changed to the Turkey Dinner.

Shane then introduced Paul Vang, who we all know as a long-time member of our club and former District Governor.

After Paul retired from the Social Security Administration in 1995, he was approached by the editor of the Montana Standard about doing a weekly outdoor column. After some consideration, the column was started in October of 1995. Over the years, the column has moved to the Butte Weekly and Paul has also submitted pieces to hunting magazines.

The thought behind the book was to establish a body of work, but much of the content in the book is new, never before published information, or significant re-writes of past columns. The writing, compiling, and editing of the book has taken about six years and the initial run is 150 copies.

The content of the book is primarily hunting stories, mostly focused on stories involving one of Paul's dogs, Candy, but there are a few fly fishing stories thrown in to mix it up a bit.

For each copy sold, Paul is contributing $1 to the Kiwanis International EliMiNate project to eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.
