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 ?!
