Immed. Past President
The new officers and directors were appropriately installed by our own member, Lt. Gov. Roy Coffman. Roy commended the outgoing officers and directors and challenged the incoming leadership. A donation in the amount of $1000 was made to the Kiwanis of Abilene Foundation in honor of Past President Grady Jolly.
Last year a total of $2427 was collected in the Boys & Girls Collection Glasses at the tables. One half of this goes to the Abilene Boys Ranch and the other half goes to Harmony Family Services program.
November 15 was the big day for Kiwanis in Abilene. It was the highlight of the membership drive that is going on in all clubs in Division 35. Bailey Choate pulled together outstanding Kiwanis Leadership. This dinner at the civic center was attended by District Secretary Jack McGee, Past International President Art Swanberg and several Past Lt. Governors. Sixty five new members were inducted at this joint meeting of the 9 clubs in Division 35. Bailey announced that we will get 100 by the end of the year.
Randy Delay, District Chairperson for the Kiwanis International's emphasis on the Iodine Deficiency Disorder, which is a world wide problem spoke to our club on Nov. 29. This is the beginning of a 3 year program which Kiwanis has taken on to help eliminate this disorder.
Again, the Kiwanis Club was the first to donate $600 to the Goodfellows Christmas project.
