Hi all,

Today we meet at Manhattan’s at noon.

We have speakers lined up for the first Wednesday of each month. Two weeks ago we were joined by Eric Fox from Springfield High School and Cordelia Vandeverre from Toledo Technology Academy. They were here representing Leadership Toledo. After listening to these two seniors, we know we are in good hands with their future leadership. Cordelia, the president of Yippie, had just met with Senator Sherod Brown and Eric led an arts supply drive at Springfield to benefit Mental Health Awareness

We have a change of guard and Greg Loeb is our new president for this quarter. He sends this message…

Hi All,

Just a reminder that we have our Kiwanis meeting this Wednesday April 6th, at Manhattans on Adams Street. Good News we will be having Kiwanis member Elizabeth Hoerner from Youth Leadership Toledo present to the group. Elizabeth will be bringing 2 students to the luncheon to tell our group firsthand all the great things Youth Leadership Toledo is doing.

Just a reminder that Manhattan’s has asked us to be seated and ready to place our orders right at noon. This helps to get our checks distributed at 1PM in order to try to get us all out of the restaurant by 1:15PM.

Thanks, and hope to see you all on Wednesday

Greg

January 19th Meeting Recap;

We had quite a crowd of members at Manhattans and the service was superb. Everyone got their food in quick order and the bills arrived shortly after.

All is good! Alex McLean started our meeting off with a beautiful invocation.

Michael told yet another dad joke - “Why does a chicken coup only have two doors? Because if it had four doors, it would be called a chicken sedan!”

Brags and fines;

John updated us on another wrestling win for Conrad. Way to go Conrad!

The big news: Gail and Noah Faulder are expecting a baby girl in May. Congratulations to them both!

George and Don are both happy to be on the other side of Covid.

 

Next Wednesday is our board meeting. Liz Hoerner was bringing a couple of Youth Leadership students to our meeting tomorrow. We hope to reschedule their visit.

Be safe out there. Keep that core tight when shoveling! Better yet, if some industrious kids come by and offer to shovel for you, take them up on that offer.

Hello Kiwanians and friends,

President Rick led a successful luncheon at Manhattan’s last week. The food was delicious. Parking was easy.

Past President Michael was there with his bad dad jokes.

We collected $120.00 in brags and fines.

Some of them are as follows:
lots of OSU brags
Michigan fans were silent
Conrad (John E.) and Andrew (Dave L.) wrestled their way into winning tournaments
Gene C. is opening up his own law practice

Board meeting the 9th of February at Manhattan’s

Next Kiwanis meeting is January 19th at Manhattan’s

We received this beautiful letter from Mom’s House for our $500.00 donation for classroom supplies this past holiday season.

Dear Kiwanians,

Here’s hoping you are all enjoying your holidays!

Please see below. We have a new location for meeting, getting back to our roots in (Up)town Toledo! We are looking forward to seeing more members in attendance.

Special thanks to President Rick and Billy Mann for securing.

This takes effect with our first meeting of the new year - next Wednesday, January 5th, 2022.


Begin forwarded message:

From: Rick Mann
Subject: Kiwanis Lands on Manhattan’s!!


Good afternoon all.

I spoke with Elizabeth at Manhattan’s today and made standing reservations for Kiwanis to meet there, free of charge, on the first and third Wednesday of each month for the next 6 months, with the option to extend indefinitely.

If it turns out that we are not satisfied with Manhattan’s, we can choose to cancel our reservations at any time.

Our hope is that, by choosing a restaurant closer to downtown, we will continue to grow our attendance numbers.

As I mentioned, they are waiving the $30.00 room charge and we would be ordering individually from their regular menu.

The address is 1516 Adams Street and there is plenty of free parking available across the street from the restaurant.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Yours in Kiwanis,

Quarter President Rick

Hi all,

We meet tomorrow (Wednesday) at Scramblers on Central Avenue.

December Birthdays (no anniversaries)

13th - Lucky Langendorfer

We will be discussing our holiday plans for Sherman School.

Next Wednesday is the board meeting at Scrambler’s on Secor Road.

Happy Wednesday.

Wow - what a great week it’s been for Kiwanis!

We celebrate three more birthdays this week - yesterday George Wilson turned 90+. Way to go George. Tomorrow is Charles Ide’s Thanksgiving birthday. The 28th is Rick Mann’s birthday.

We welcome Jordan Neipp to this thread. She joined us last week at our meeting and wants to become a member, even after President Michael’s dad joke and our singing “You are my Turkey” to the tune of You are my Sunshine (sung in the middle of the restaurant).  Jordan is with Premier Bank. 

Greg Loeb did a fantastic job in securing all the food items needed for our Kiwanis basket stuffing - not an easy feat in lieu of quantity restrictions, etc. We met at Brian Miller’s home to put the baskets (which Rick Mann generously donated) together. Then on to the most important park of the event - soups and pies by Paul. They were delicious as always. Several Kiwanians then delivered the prepared baskets to Equality Toledo. Many thanks to Brian and Paul for opening their home to us. Pictures attached…

This came to me from Will Krosky - Congratulations Larry (Schmakel) on your induction to The Toledo Ability Center’s Hall of Fame for Active Civic and Community Leader for your dedication to generations of students and alumni of The University of Toledo as you are shown receiving the award at the Ability Center’s centennial of service celebration. Well Done Larry. Well Done 👍!

December’s schedule (subject to change) is as follows:

1st - Meeting at Scrambler’s on Central 

8th - Board Meeting at Scrambler’s on Secor Road

15th - Sherman School Pizza Party. We will supply pizza and goodie bags for the entire school. We will hold our meeting there as well. More information on that to follow…

Hello Kiwanians,

Our regular club meeting will be held tomorrow, Wednesday November 17th, noon, at the Scrambler's Restaurant at 6819 Central Avenue location.  We will not be in the regular meeting space, but there is a designated area toward the back.

Thanksgiving Baskets are a go!

On November 20th we will assemble 20 baskets for Equality Toledo and have soups and pies at the home of Brian and Paul. (2040 Robinwood)

This from Greg:

We are all set for Saturday for the baskets for Meijer.  We can meet at Meijer @ 1500 E Alexis Road at 9AM Saturday.  Just look for me up in the front of the store.  For those of you that have helped before we will use a register up front to ring it all out and load everything up front (like we had done in the past at the other Meijer location)  I believe and then drive around back for the turkeys. 

Greg will bring a hat to the meeting tomorrow to pass for donations…

See you tomorrow.
