We inducted 2 new members into our club who will be attending the evening Kiwanis One meetings.  Welcome Bill Boughton and Drew Alexander!
  • We look forward to seeing everyone at our 100th anniversary gala on Saturday!

  • We'll be helping with the Asheville Running Experience from 8:30-10:30 on Saturday.  If you can help let Windell know.
  • Make plans to attend the meeting on October 1st where we will induct new officers and board members, give out Legion of Honor pins, present Kiwanian of the Year, and induct several new members. 
The next Kiwanis One meeting will be Thursday, September 26 5:30-7  at Archetype .  Come learn about how you could help in planning an exciting new project called Drone School, which will involve Drone racing.  AB Tech and UNCA may even partner with us!
          Keep Collecting Box Tops!
Johnston is collecting box tops which earn money for their school!    Many products you buy have them.  Click here to see a list.  There will be a jar at the check in table.  Bring any box tops you've collected during the week, and we will deliver them to  Johnston when school starts back in the fall.  
Our speaker was Angie Schwab, executive director of Folkmoot, which is much more than the festival that happens every July.  They provide year round cultural programming at Waynesville’s historic Hazelwood School and foster the vibrancy of many cultures into one community.  Folkmoot programs are based on cultural exchange and designed to build global relationships, foster cultural understanding and develop community prosperity.
