Hello all,

We are meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon at Manhattans. Member Bob Bollin will be there to present a check to the club from proceeds from his Classic Car Show. Come to the meeting to say hello and thank you to Bob Bollin for his generous contribution.

Your board of directors has been discussing the future of our club and has some great ideas to present to the members. We plan to begin discussions starting October 5th and would appreciate input from our members in attendance. More on this important topic to follow.

See you tomorrow.

Good Day Everyone,

I have the final tally on the proceeds from the car show this past weekend, and would like to schedule a meeting date to deliver the check to Kiwanis.

The final numbers are:

125 Classic Cars, Trucks, and Special Interst Vehicles in attendance throughout the day. With 50/50 raffle takes, and TOLEDO DOOR AND WINDOW'S "round up" donation, (including Bob Bollin's registration fee of $220 for HIS 22 Vehicles in the show ! LOL) I have a check for $2000.00 to present to the club.

Thank You to all Kiwanis volunteers that came out and helped with the show!

It was a GREAT day with GREAT support from the local Classic Car Owners Community!

Most all Classic Car people are generous and supportive of our show every year.

Let me know what Wednesday Meeting dates you have available for me to deliver the check.

Respectfully Submitted,


Toledo Automatic Door Co.,dba

Fellow Kiwanians;

Last Saturday we had the largest Division project ever accomplished. Turnout was tremendous! Everything went better than expected. We had visits from Marcy Kaptur (United States Representative) and Toledo Mayor (Wade Kapszukiewicz) . Volunteers and workmanship from all ages was outstanding. We had a total of 51 members,staff and volunteers.

I'm so proud to be part of this Division on performance for this project. We raised a total of $9000 enough to build 50 beds. We received a grant from the Ohio District Foundation for $1960.00 and the rest all the clubs donated to. I want to acknowledge two clubs for coming up with extra monies days before the event so I could meet my goal of 50 Beds. Downtown Toledo Club, and East Toledo Club. It is my intention to execute this project next if the Presidents vote in favor.

Sincerely Michael Metzger
Lt Governor Division 1 North

Recaps of Kiwanis Club of Toledo doing what it does best - service projects and having fun!

From President Don: Division 1 North organized and arranged a Let’s Build Beds Event Saturday August 27th from 9AM-Noon at Cedar Creek Church on Byrne Road in South Toledo. 50 beds were built and delivered to need kids in the metro Toledo area. I have attached some pictures from the event.  Thank you to The Downtown Kiwanis Club for stepping up and playing a major role in financing so the Division was able to meet the goal of 50 beds.

Special Thanks to Volunteers:

  • Greg Loeb
