    SEPTEMBER 15, 2012

    Wanda Baril’s Message:

    It is critically important that Club Presidents and Secretaries for the 2012-2013 and also incoming officers for 2013-2014 attend Leadership Education. Kiwanis International and the New England District will need to know the officers who have had training before October 1ST and shortly after. This will be important for a Club to qualify for Distinguished. There are other criteria as well.

    An Education session is scheduled for Saturday, September 15, 2012 at the Aldrich Public Library in Barre Vermont. The session will begin promptly at 9:00 am and will end between 1:30 and 2:00 pm. No lunch will be served, but you are welcome to bring a snack and your drink.

    Past Governor Ron Sanville and myself will be leading this session. We hope that all Clubs in Division 9 will be attending.

    If you prefer, Club officers can go to KiwanisOne Website and take the course there or contact me for individual training. If another location is better for Clubs who are unable to attend this session please let me know and we will contact you to arrange another session.

    Please let me know of your attendance plans at <Wbaril19@...>. For those of you listed above who are past Club officers, please be sure to pass this along to the present officers.

    For those of you coming from the South and from the North the best way to get to the Library is:

    Exit 7 from Interstate 89. Take the exit ramp into Barre (a long ramp). When reaching the major traffic intersection in Barre (after crossing the railroad tracks) continue straight through this intersection and take your right at the next light onto Summer Street. Stay on Summer Street until you reach the next intersection with a traffic light. Turn right onto Elm Street. The Library will be on your left on the corner of Elm Street and Jefferson Street. There is parking on Jefferson Street or in a parking lot behind the Library. The Elks Club will be on your left as you turn into Jefferson Street. You will notice that Main Street in Barre is under heavy construction. Summer Street runs parallel to Main Street which avoids the construction.

    For those of you coming into Barre on Route 14 from East Montpelier, pass Hope Cemetery down Maple Avenue into Barre. Take a left onto Summer Street at the traffic light at the detour sign and follow the directions above.


    The City of Keene (NH) is dedicating a new bicycle overpass bridge on Saturday, September 15th at noon. The Kiwanis Club of Keene will be helping organize the kid’s bike parade. If you have a young child who would enjoy coming to a great family event with bands and excitement, bring them and their bike to the old Sears Parking lot near the intersection of the Route 9/10/12 overpass and West Street in Keene. There will be lots of excitement for the kids. For more information contact Mike Ward at mward@....


    The Bangor Breakfast Club of Kiwanis (ME) will hold their Annual Yard Sale in Geaghan’s Parking lot.

    Admission is $1. Vendor spaces are $15.
    Open every Sunday from 8 AM to 2 PM in Newington's Market Square Free Parking Lot.
    Entrance at 39 E. Cedar St. (CT Route 175).

    Every Sunday brings throngs of shoppers and a new treasure trove of household, personal, musical, electronics and other wares at rock bottom prices. Tempting aromas from food vendors pervade the scene; also interesting sightseeing Kiwanis President Bob Seiler sticks to his claim that this is the greatest $1 sightseeing value in Connecticut. 

    For some it has become an after-church weekly recreation stroll.
    College students frequently find useful bargains to furnish their dorms.

    Many people bring their tag sales here not only to reach throngs of shoppers but also to save advertising money and especially to avoid shady strangers coming to their homes. 

    Business people find it an economical place to feature their goods and  services. A special treat will be a live Amateur Radio Station broadcasting on the air from the Flea Market, together with a delegation from the Newington Amateur Radio League with information on how to become a licensed Amateur Radio operator.
