NEWS AND NOTES

 

 

 

Meeting notes: We had two guests from the Elm Grove Golden K, Dick Hoesley and Jerry Wegner, more about whom later. John Cable started happy bucks by paying one for winning a tee-shirt last week, but he then donated the tee shirt for another raffle. Carl Smith was happy for having spent a week in San Diego watching his grandson play baseball with other national all-star high school players. Bob Gross contributed a buck for his 27th anniversary and for the anticipated Venture Crew overnight at Lambeau Field. Dave Eppelsheimer was happily looking forward to attending a Brewer's game with his son. Mike D'Amore pitched the upcoming Kids From Wisconsin show, this Sunday at West Allis Central. John Foley was doubly happy, first because his middle son was in the Bahamas when hurricanes weren't, and second because of Irish Fest.

 

Our speakers were Laura Wainscott and Phil Ertl, telling us about the state of the Wauwatosa School District. Laura also reported that her daughter, who received a Kiwanis scholarship, is going to graduate from college soon, even though she changed her major. Dr. Ertl told us about some of the fiscal challenges facing the District, but he also said that the Key Clubs are part of the fabric and culture of the District and that funding for the Key Club advisors will continue for at least another school year. One of the edgy education approaches the District is trying out is on-line learning to help expand offerings and serve students who grew up on-line.

 

 

 

Lt. Governor reports: Dick Hoesley was happy to say that last weekend's District Convention had 210 members in attendance.

 

 

 

Spelling: Jerry Wegner presented the club with a check in honor of our spelling team's second place finish.

 

 

 

Tosa Cares: Dick Bachman informed us that the Tosa Cares Food Pantry now serves 100-150 families every six weeks and is going well.

 

 

 

Flags: Dick also warned us that we will need to raise some money to fix up the North Avenue flags, which haven't fared well in this summer's weather.

 

 

 

Rosalie Manor: The first Tuesday of September Mike D'Amore will collect children's books, toothpaste, toothbrushes, diapers, good children's clothing, and all the other things they need

 

 

 

Programs: Aug. 30, Jim Bojar. Sept. 13, Carl Smith. Sept. 20, Bob Gross. Sept. 27, induction dinner.

 

 

 

Meetings: Tuesday noon, Mayfair Mall Community Room
