Today we were again joined by Matt from the Circle K. Mark and Keith reminded us of the parking for the Vigilante Rodeo this Friday and Saturday, An Ri Ra needs volunteers Friday from 4pm and Saturday from noon for a variety of jobs, and our Silver Bow Kiwanis Family Picnic is next Tuesday at 6 at Clark Park. Signup sheets for all three of these went around again. If you can help with the parking or with An Ri Ra, we can definitely use the help. Mark also reminded us of the board meeting this Thursday at 5:45 at Metals.

Mark then turned the meeting over to Cathy. Cathy showed us a slide show about the playground equipment available from Landscape Structures and Kiwanis International with Kiwanis branding (and Kiwanis discounts) that can be installed in a park. This could be used as a replacement of existing playground equipment, or playground equipment to install in a new park or a park without playground equipment. There was some discussion that this may be something that we could work with other Kiwanis clubs in the area on, and possibly incorporate in the Greeley School project. There are $50,000, $75,000, and $100,000 complete sets, but many of the pieces can be purchased individually. They also have a build to budget program. The playground equipment includes signage that includes the Kiwanis branding as well as spaces for top donors logos to encourage organizations and local businesses to donate to the project.

Cathy then presented us with the Kiwanis 100 Years trivia program. Some of the answers were easy, others were more difficult. And some even Betsy, Dave, and Paul were unsure of the answers!

The hundredth anniversary of Kiwanis is next year and International is encouraging clubs to take on high profile projects and to encourage community involvement. The playground equipment is available currently with special Kiwanis 100th anniversary branding, rather than the regular Kiwanis International branding to help with this. Another idea that has been presented is to have a drawing contest or essay contest as a project for kids to encourage youth involvement. If there is any particular project you are interested in or would like the club to consider, please let Cathy know.
