Rod collected Happy Bucks. 
 
Joann volunteered our club to participate in accepting produce for Saving Grace at the District Convention on August 4th & 5.  She has enough volunteers for Friday. She does need 2 more volunteers for Saturday from 7:30 am to 9:00 am.  Contact Joann if you are available to help.
 
Members that are not volunteering have a chance to participate by bringing produce to our Kiwanis meeting on July 27th. Joann has volunteered to take the produce to the convention center for Saving Grace to pick up.  Only requirement is that it should not be produce that requires refrigeration.
 
Joann and Glen plan to attend the convention.
 
Joann read from an article about clubs winning awards for their projects. One that caught Barb's attention was donating back packs and school supplies to schools.  She suggested this could be a project our club could do.  Barb is to contact some schools to see if there is a need for this project. Sacred Heart and Completely Kids were suggested.  
 
Joann is to send out an email asking the Board Member's to vote yes or no on whether the club should consider spending $1000.00 for this project if Barb finds a need for it in our area.
 
Installation Dinner is possibly September 19th. More information to come later.
 
Summer Party is going to be at Jack Jackson's house on August 26th. It will be catered.  A signup sheet will be passed around soon.
