The interclub committee, chaired by David Weibel, has been working to set up dates for our Club members to visit various Kiwanis Clubs in the area.
Participating in an interclub not only earns you an attendance credit, it also provides a great opportunity for fellowship and learning, as you observe, question and discuss how another Club operates. Here are a couple of scheduled interclubs:
1- Monday evening, March 13, with Kiwanis Club of London (Ohio). The meeting will be held in the historic Red Brick Tavern located at 1700 Cumberland Road (State Route 40) in Lafayette. This will be their Junior Kiwanis night. If you would like to attend, please contact David Weibel (email@example.com). We plan to carpool over there.
2- Thursday, March 30, with Hilltop Kiwanis The program speaker will be Lieutenant Scott Hyland of the Crime Analysis Unit. They meet for lunch at Crossroads United Methodist, located at 1100 S Hague Avenue. at 11:45 a.m. Meal cost is $8.
There are also opportunities for our members to earn attendance credits and a potential interclub credit (if four or more of our members participate) while supporting the fundraising efforts of other Kiwanis Clubs. Here a couple of examples:
1- Sunday, March 12 – Berwick Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner – 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
2- Saturday, March 18 – South Columbus Kiwanis Club invites us to compete in their annual Euchre Night. Cost is $25 per person and includes 2 beers and food. A cash bar will also be available. For more details, contact Charles Lariviere at 614-558-6060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
3- Saturday, April 8 – Eastern Columbus Kiwanis Club invites us to join them for their annual Pizza-tasting Party.
If you would like to take the lead in gathering a small group of our members (yourself and 3-4 others) to one of these fundraising events, please let us know. It could be a great way to get to know some of your fellow Kiwanis members while having some fun, fellowship and a meal.
