Mark Your Calendars ! - The Golden K Christmas Party is Set

We have set the date and finalized our plans for our annual Golden K Christmas Party. It will be Saturday November 16, and it will again be catered by Charlie's Eatery and held in the Elks Lodge room where we host our weekly meetings.
We had good reports on the food served at last year's event so we've decided to keep the same menu as last year.
A social hour with hors d'oeuvres will begin at 5:00 pm followed by a short business meeting at 5:45 pm. Dinner will be served at 6:00 pm. Cost per person is $16.00.
Thanks to our Christmas Party co-chairs, Arlen Books and Dave Paxton for their planning work again this year. Look for a mailing with more information in the next few days. This annual party is a great way to celebrate this special season together. Hopefully we will have a great turnout again this year.



Christmas Party Door Prizes

As is our tradition, we plan to have a few door prizes to give out to "winning" guests at our Christmas Party. Some of the Golden K officers and Board members will be providing those door prizes.
If any other members wish to donate a door prize to the party you are welcome to do so. But keep in mind if we have 10 - 12 door prizes that will be more than enough.

Kiwanis Scholarship Applications have been Delivered

Funds we and other clubs donate each year to the MN-DAK Education Foundation go toward providing scholarships to college bound seniors. Each year our Golden K club has been assigned Schaeffer Academy and Lourdes High School to distribute these scholarship applications. Those applications were received and delivered this past week. Each school may nominate up to 3 High School Seniors for consideration. The Kiwanis Scholarships awarded are $950 one year scholarships. It's another example of the great work of Kiwanis.
