  • Congressman Charles Stenholm addressed the club on October 14, 1998. Known for his trademark cowboy boots and a good-natured, common sense style, Stenholm often assumes the role of bridge builder between political parties, ideological extremes, and generational opposites. Often called "the spiritual godfather of fiscal austerity," Stenholm has been a leading spokesperson for fiscal responsibility. His address was well received.
  • Bill and Margaret Hoogstra were presented a plaque in recognition of outstanding service to Meals on Wheels.
  • A Thank you note was received from Ben Gray of Harmony Family Services for the club's donation of $1000.
  • Bailey Choate announced that Nancy Miller has been nominated by the Kiwanis Club of Abilene for governorship of the Texas-New Mexico district.
  • This year we have stepped out of the box, the pancake mix box that is. After a great deal of discussion, we have moved the Pancake Supper from the middle of April to March 30, 1999. We hope to eliminate the problems that have occurred with having Pancake Day during income tax time. This is the 50th Anniversary of our Pancake Supper. Please come and make it the biggest and best ever!
  • Van Boozer presented Past Lt. Governor Keith Garner with a George F. Hixson Fellowship award. Keith's company gave matching funds, so there were actually two Hixson awards.
  • A raise in dues became effective February 1, 1999. The dues were raised $5 $38 per month. Senior member dues are $16 per month. Leave of absence dues are $8 per month. The cost of meals for guests is $6.50.
  • Ken Poynor was named Kiwanian of the Year!
  • The 2nd Annual Basketball Shootout was a huge success. The event raised a total of $2114.97 which was divided between the Iodine Deficiency Project and Children's Miracle Network to help needy children.
  • George Knight presented awards to the Vocational Guidance students. Thirty-five students received certificates of recognition and five students received $500 scholarships to the school of their choice.
  • James Hallmark was selected as the Kiwanis Club of Abilene Layperson of the Year.
