  • A great job was done by the Kiwanians as they provided access control for the Southwest Seniors Golf Classic at Fairway Oaks. Connell Taylor and John Dunn headed up this massive project. This was a great way to get to be better acquainted with other club members. Our club had 121 members that participated in 184 shifts
  • President Mike has a column in the Kiwanigram called "Ring the Bell" in which he has the opportunity to bring to the attention of the club members those items he and the board are wanting to emphasize as goals. His goal #1 is "Have Fun".

  • President Elect Buddy Coke has moved to Odessa in early January. Chris Carnohan was elected to the President Elect position. Ken Poynor was elected to be Vice-President to replace Chris.
  • Founders Day was observed on January 23 at which time Sid Pass and D. C. Musick, veteran Kiwanis gave us some early memories of club activities. Also, Legion of Honor Awards were presented to 13 members who represented 1,840 years of Kiwanis service.

  • The ticket sales Kick-off for April 9 Pancake supper was on Feb. 27. The Theme is "Feed Hungry Abilene Day" as promoted by Russell Berry. An incentive to team captains is the SKUNK which the low person must carry and protect. People fed:9,600; Gross income: $31,214.50.
  • A membership drive got kicked-off May 15.

  • Kiwanians contributed 159 hours of community service to the Taylor County State 4H Horse Show.
  • Chris Carnohan began writing "From My Prospective" column in the Kiwanigram soon after he was elected President Elect. This gave him a good chance to set the stage for his administration as he was able to share his philosophy of service.
  • The club membership voted to accept the board's recommendation and increase the monthly dues from $24.00 to $28.00. This was deemed necessary because of the increase in the meal cost and increases in District and International Dues over the years. This increase became effective Sept. 1, 1991. Guest meals are $5.75
