It is designed to give young boys and girls from center Manchester the opportunity to enjoy a morning of excellent trout fishing. In many cases, it’s the first time they’ve ever held a rod and reel. What a joy it is to see the proud smiles as they pull in a fish for the first time! Poles, bait and a delicious lunch are provided. The trout are even cleaned and bagged for them to be taken home. Along with the poles and fish, each child will take home an official Fish with a Child trophy to commemorate the day.This event has become a favorite among Kiwanians. It’s a chance to really have an impact on a child one on one. It’s also a time to get to know club members in a relaxed environment. We expect about 30 smiling, excited kids in attendance and it can’t be a success without a strong turnout from the club. Most importantly, we need at least 20 people dedicated to helping the kid’s fish. The first timers need some hands on help with baiting the hooks, casting and of course, removing the fish! However, they get the hang of it quickly and often take pride in doing it themselves. We also need a large number of folks to help with the lunch, setup, cleanup and general supervision. Just plain socializing with fellow members is also one of the most important tasks!Fish with a Child is held rain or shine. Plan to arrive at 8:00am and leave by noon.May 14, 2012Good 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@...>.May 17, 2012The Kiwanis Club of Greater Waterbury (CT) will be celebrating their 90th Anniversary of service to the community.
