Kenowa Klassified – 5/20/14

The Official Newsletter of the Kenowa Chapter of AMBUCS – Chartered May 28, 1957. President: Jason Minier – Vice-President: Beth Van Wieren – Treasurer: Doug Levering Secretary: Kelli Williams – Sergeants: Kay Janus and David Hodge

Today’s Meeting:

Several AMBUCS got together for a fun lunch.  District Governor Fern Barnett swore in our new officers.

Welcome Beth Van Wieren as our new club president and Mavis Byers as our new Vice President.

A tryke was also presented to Christian and his parents.  He had a lot of fun taking laps around the room.
IMG_3641We also stuffed race bags with swag from several of our member businesses.
IMG_3650A big thanks to all of the members that stuck around late to help fill the bags.
IMG_3652 Several people have now volunteered to help out with the race and parade. We’re REALLY close to the number of people we need. So if you haven’t signed up yet and are available Monday morning, please come on up to the parade to help around 7:30.

After two attempts at a District Board meeting, we finally crashed the Grand Rapids chapter fundraiser at Brann’s on Wednesday to take care of business. Thanks to Marty Rogalski and Sheldon Cole for taking the time for another fun lunch.

AMBUCS on the Air

Mavis Byers recently spent some air time on JQ99, and David Hodge also gave a fantastic interview with Shelley Irwin on WGVU.  [Podcast of David Hodge & Jason Minier on WGVU below.]

Here’s hoping Shelley still has a job next week!

What’s The Hops?

Beth reported the necessary licenses have been secured for the July 3 beer tent fundraiser in downtown Grandville in conjunction with the 4th of July festivities.  Further details will be coming in the future but save that evening to help out either with the tent or the drinking.

I Love A Parade

Members are needed to sign up to help out at the Jenison Memorial Day 5K Race & Parade that is one of our major fundraisers. Save some time that Monday morning to join your fellow Ambucs for a couple of hours to make sure all goes well. Some of your fellow club members have made this a tradition for many years because, in addition to raising funds for our mission, it is a fun and social morning. Family members are welcome and you’ll be done in time to still enjoy the holiday.
