  • We had 14 members present for our meeting today.
  • Elaine gave out copies of the updated policies in our Bylaws which we will vote on at the Oct. 15th meeting.  If you did not receive one, you can see them here.  The highlighted policies at the end are what we will be voting on.  
  • The updated member directory is at the bottom of our website under members only.  If you need the password, let Elaine know.  You can download it to your computer,or print it out, if you want to keep it handy for quick access.
We have inducted 5 new members into our club who will be attending our evening Kiwanis One meetings from 5:30-7 on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month.  The first project will be a fundraiser for Guardian Ad Litem on November 15th at Eluvium Brewing in Weaverville.  The club is also beginning work on a Drone Racing initiative and afterschool program, which is very exciting.  The next meeting will be Thursday, October 10th at Eluvium Brewing.   Come, and bring a friend!

Eliada Home Kiwanis Playground Update
We will be giving about $1800 towards the playground, which is the money raised from the silent auction at our gala.

Another way you can help is to sign up for
Amazon Smile and add Eliada Home as your charity.   When you buy anything on Amazon, 5% of the purchase will go towards the Eliada Playground.  You have to place your order from the Amazon Smile page.  Tell your family and friends so they can help us too!  If you need help, I can show you at our next meeting.
We will be providing lunch for the teachers on Thursday, October 24th from about 11-12:30.  
          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 the school.
2019-2020 Officers and Directors
Our speaker was Kristina Lunsford, the program director for Xplore USA, a summer day camp for international students.  Xplore USA facilitates cultural and educational programs for both American and international students. They are expecting about 60-70 students during July and August of 2020, so  many families will be needed to host a student.  If you're interested about learning more,  there will be a Fall festival at Hanger Hall on Oct. 20th  from 1-4, or you can go to their website.
