There were 25 members in attendance with 5 guests including Les for the Aktion Club and an interclub from Nevada. Vern reported a can deposit of $76.00. The Aktion Club is planning their Christmas Party and discussing future meeting locations. Our club will be ringing the bell for Salvation Army on Dec. 8-9th. Contact Vern to sign up. Toni read the board of directors meeting minutes from the Nov. 3rd meeting.
Bob Smith had the program today. He invited Jody Melcher from the Nevada Kiwanis Club to discuss the Ames Miracle Playground & Field that funds are being raised for. Jody is a member of the steering committee and is seeking funds from local Kiwanis Clubs. Planning started in 2015 and a fundraising campaign started Sept. 16th to raise $1.9 million for the facility which will include a field for softball and baseball as well as a playground for children and adults with disabilities. It will be located at 24th & Duff in Ames at the current site of Inis Grove Park. Thanks to Bob and Jody for a very interesting program!
