Today we were joined by Reno from the Circle K and David, as well as Josie's sister, Christina.

Sunvee let us know about a fund raiser for Tasha, the daughter of the owners of the B&S Cafe uptown. Tasha is waiting on a kidney transplant. The fund raiser will be on October 11 at the Front Street Station and will include a raffle and an auction. For more information contact Sunvee.

Betsy gave us an update on getting shirts for all club members. Embroidered polo shirts will cost $16 each and transferred t-shirts will cost $7.50. Sizes above large will cost extra. Also, the K-Span is in a new format, which should make it more readable. The next issue is due out in just a couple weeks.

Cathy reminded us of the board summit on Saturday, October 4. All board members and anyone interested in being a committee chair should attend, as well as any adult advisers for our SLP clubs. This is scheduled from 9 to noon, followed by lunch and miniature golf.

The installation and recognition dinner is October 9 at the Thornton uptown. Make sure you RSVP on our signup sheet or by contacting Keith, Cathy, or Sunvee before October 4.

Keith reported on the raffle, with 20 tickets sold and turned in, we are at 10% - we need to sell at least 50 tickets just to cover the prizes, so make sure you are selling those tickets!

Reno reminded us of the Circle K's Kick-it program. You can sponsor a Circle K member by covering half of their dues, then the Circle K member is obligated to be your guest at at least one of our meetings, and to provide at least tow hours of community service. If you are a kick-it sponsor for a Circle K member, be sure to get in touch with your Circle K member and work out those service hours!

Cathy then introduced our incoming Lieutenant Governor for Division 3 of the Montana District of Kiwanis International, Jim Greene of Anaconda.

Jim reminded us all that next year is the 100th anniversary of Kiwanis, and part of the celebration is the kick off of the Formula, a plan to grow Kiwanis through the next 100 years.

The formula makes teams in each division within each district to help membership growth. The teams are led by the Lt. Governor and have one or more "New Club Openers" and "Club Counselors." The first Club Counselor for Division 3 is our own Lee Miller, and the first New Club Opener for Division 3 is our own incoming president Cathy Tutty.

Within Division 3 they will be evaluating communities in the Division to look for at least 5 communities that could potentially be home to a new club or club satellite. They plan to work together to open at least one club satellite during the year. In addition, they want to work with each club to get a net increase of one member per club for each club in the Division this year.
