Purchasing District Clothing
As we know, the only time in the past that we’ve been able to purchase District and Foundation clothing such as shirts, vests, jackets etc., has been at District Conventions or Conferences. We are trying to make it easier for all members to be able to purchase these articles anytime during the year. We may also use the Yankiwanian to have special sales during the year.
During the coming year we will be updating our ladies line with better colors and sizes. We hope you will take advantage of the new service by ordering by mail or on line. You may use the order form or email or fax your orders to District and foundation apparel

The Kiwanis Club took over the railroad-themed spectacular to ensure the continuation of what has become a Christmas tradition for midcoast families.The two-night, five-trip schedule aboard Maine Eastern Railroad will be Fri. Dec. 6, with two train times; and Sat Dec 7, with three train times.In addition to Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus boarding the train, the trip includes a visit to the North Pole, where riders get to observe the activities at Santa’s Workshop from inside the train. Train conductors will read a story and every child will receive a bell to commemorate their journey. Families enjoy Christmas carols on the ride back to the Rockland depot, where cookies and hot cocoa await the disembarked passengers.It takes more than 100 volunteers to produce the show, including approximately 50 elves on performance nights, according to Kiwanis president and JBE co-chair Katie Tarbox of Spruce Head. The rest of the volunteers include those who are in costume on the train, or who perform countless hours of behind-the-scenes functions like baking cookies, decorating, lighting, and set up.Committee co-chair, Margie Kinney of Thomaston, said the purpose of the JBE is to provide a unique experience and to create memories. She said that there are always new families who take the trip, as well as a lot of repeat customers. She noted that several of the younger volunteers have been involved for a long time. “We’ve watched so many of them transition from wide-eyed riders sitting with mom and dad, to costumed entertainers dancing and playing at Santa’s Workshop,” she said.While the local service club retains a portion of the ticket revenue for their charitable giving efforts, the rest goes to cover the cost of the train’s operation. The use of the North Pole location comes through the generosity of the Thomaston Historical Society.Tickets are $19 per person, including service charges. Children under the age of 2 years ride free. Tickets and information can be obtained online at www.maineeasternrailroad.com, or by calling 207.596.6725.WHAT: Kiwanis Jingle Bell EXPRESS – Train ride to North Pole and Santa’s WorkshopWHERE: Railroad Depot at 4 Union Street, Rockland, Maine 04841 – Call 207.596.6725WHEN: Dec. 6 – 5:00 & 6:30 PM --- Dec. 7 – 4:30 & 6:00 & 7:30 PMPRICING: $19 per person – Children under 2 ride free in lapNOTES: Reservations Encouraged - 200 passengers per trip - Tickets sell quicklyDecember 7, 2013Join the Kiwanis Club of New London (CT) at the Festival of trees....The Festivals of TreesWhen: Saturday, December 7, 2013Where: 133 Bank Street, New London, ConnecticutYes, it is that time again…. The Festival of TreesThe Festivals of Trees is an event held for the past ten years by the Downtown New London Association (DNLA) to help raise money for New London Community Meal Center for needy families during the holiday season.Here’s how it works: The DNLA provides live Christmas trees. On December 2nd through the December 6th, companies and local organizations decorate the trees according to their chosen theme. Some themes from last year included: Vintage Maritime, Circus, Seashore and Peacock feathers. Then on December 7, 2013 we auction the decorated trees to the highest bidder. The DNLA will deliver the decorated Christmas trees to the winning bidders’ homes the next day.Tickets for the event are $15. Tickets include Beer, Wine and light Hors d’oeuvres.You can purchase tickets at Muddy waters (42 Bank St, New London) or Bijou Salon & Spa (256 Boston Post Rd, Waterford)Proceeds from the auction were donated to the New London Community Meal Center and were used to provide holiday meals to local families.
