      to be held for a year and ribbons for 2nd & 3rd)

      To encourage participating in this award all a club needs is at least one member visiting other club to qualify, but the more members in a visit the better. A diary of what you learned, new ideas and what you have learned about someone new should be kept in a “Word” document to share with the district at the annual district convention session on interclub.

      A visit by a district officer does not count unless they bring another member. All passport interclubs’ would be documented on your passport form and retained. On a periodical basis (January, April, August) send your excel (passport) form to the chair so we can post the results. The diary should be sent to the chair July 31st to be compiled for the conference. The host club for any meeting does not get credit for an interclub.

      The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield is again undertaking their annual literacy challenge. The club is sponsoring a town-wide book drive that runs from March 26 through April 10, 2012. It will involve the collection of new and gently used books that will be donated to Read to Grow Inc., for distribution to Connecticut communities in need, to encourage literacy, joy of reading and most importantly to promote early language development. Read to Grow distributes over 100,000 books annually to less fortunate households at no charge. These books should be appropriate for children of all ages up to the 8th grade reading level. Please go through your closets, attics and basements and see what you can donate to help underprivileged children. Collection bins will be placed in both branches of the Fairfield Public Library and all the town’s public schools (K-12) as well as several of the town’s private nursery schools. The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield has found this cause to be an excellent way of involving the entire family in giving back to the community while also encouraging literacy on a town-wide level. Last year, the residents of Fairfield donated over 8100 gently used books to this cause. For additional information or to locate a collection bin please contact Tove Vanderblue at 203-255-4716 or Betsy Browne at 203-256-3090. For more information on the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield and the many causes they support please visit <www.fairfieldkiwanis.org>.

      The Kiwanis Club of Marshfield (MA) in association with Dillstar Productions™ presents the Baritone family in a wild satire of the smash-hit series about the culture of an Italian-American Mafia family. The show, which includes full dinner and dancing, has the audience sitting in on the Mafia commission, getting inaugurated into the “family,” and gambling with laundered money.
      Tony Baritone, a.k.a “T,” leads wiseguys, “The Feds,” and the “goils” into a whirling and hilarious plot. His wife, Carmela, knows he is unfaithful and his children are growing apart from him – but “The Don” struggles to regain closeness with his family and avoid getting “pinched.” Guests will enjoy a wonderful night full of eating, dancing, singing, and many surprises!
      Ticket Price $50.00 per person includes an Italian Dinner catered by David Crest Caterers
      Family-Style Meal:
      Crisp Caesar Salad with Garlicky Croutons
      Baskets of Garlic Bread & Butter
      Chicken Cacciatore

      Kiwanis one day

      Each year Kiwanis International chooses a day for all clubs, or Divisions, to do a community service project. It's called Kiwanis One Day. This year the date is April 21st.
      Would those of you, who are doing a project this year, and we encourage you to do so, please send me a synopsis of what you are planning on doing?
      In the beginning of March, I intend to print a list of Clubs or Divisions and their respective projects.
      This is a great opportunity to do a real hands on project, not just write a check for the benefit of your community. Let's see how creative your Club or Division can be, and please let me know about it. This requires a lot of teamwork. Go Team Kiwanis, Go!

      Of course, there’s the usual documented information about the Kentucky Derby. What you may not know is there is an undocumented anecdote about hat-wearing individuals whose brains are already warmed under the hat and, therefore, ready to make winning bids on the races. I’m sure I heard that from my old granny sometime during my life.

      So where can you wear your hat…guys and dolls…and win prizes on the ponies??? At the Second Annual Marshfield Kiwanis Kentucky Derby major-come-one-come-all event occurring at Buythecase.Net Conference Center located above The Tavern restaurant which is behind Roche Bros grocery store. Fun and frolic begins at 1PM when the horses races will be begin for your viewing and betting pleasure. There will be, free food, cash bar, Mint Juleps, hats, lovely ladies, raffles, and a hat competition….where else will you find so much to do on May 5? Don’t forget… the hat competition comes with much sought-after prizes.

      Good morning Fellow Kiwanians:

      AIA Connecticut is pleased to sponsor CANstruction again this year, our twelfth year of providing the outreach program with students working with architects to fight hunger. The tentative date for the build will be on Monday, May the 14 at the Convention Center in Hartford again this year. I believe there are seven teams that have already committed. The structures will be up for about 10 days and I don’t have the date of the awards presentation yet but would guess it would follow the build by about a week. Again this year, the cans will go to the food bank geographically closest to the school.

      We would love to have the Kiwanis’ family support again this year and do hope you will consider it. The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield has generously provided much support over the past number of years, and I anticipate our club helping out again this year. This is a wonderful event, that is children oriented, and provides the students AND architects a great sense of pride in helping others (isn’t that what Kiwanis is all about?). Please consider providing some financial support or manpower assistance, or both, if you can.

      Please let me know if there is any additional information that you would find helpful for your considerations of this. We do appreciate your support over the last few years and would love to have you partner with us again to make this another successful CANstruction event.

      If this email has not been sent to the appropriate parties, please pass it along to the current decision makers in your club....this is to important to not consider. Thank you in advance.

      Yours in Service, Glenn Barnhard, Kiwanis Club of Fairfield (CT) - 203-256-8481 or <gmbarch@...>.
