Kiwanis ‘Noon’ holds board meeting

The Kiwanis Club of Marshalltown “Noon” held its regular meeting Tuesday at the American Legion Hall, 1301 S. Sixth S. President Linda Dodd Smith called the meeting to order. After the pledge to the flag, The Lord’s Prayer was said in unison. Happy Dollars were donated by Mike Gowdy, Ken Smith, Cecil Buschbom, Laurel Phipps and Dodd Smith. Joann Neven, wife of late longtime member Gene Neven was a guest of the club.

The board of directors approved monthly minutes and reports. A discussion included several ideas for club activities and increasing membership.

The Marshalltown Noon Kiwanis Club will offer a 30-day free trial membership, including meals to those interested in checking out a service club. This will be an excellent way to introduce new people to serving the community. It meets Tuesday at noon at the American Legion building on South Sixth Street. Offer for limited time only.

Next week on May 9, speaker will be Jean Klosterman from Marshall County Farm Bureau with Ag in the Classroom.

Donations were collected for the Under Privileged Children’s Fund.
