Wil Davis reminded us that the Kiwanis conference was being held this year August 10 -13th at the Bloomington Doubletree Hotel. There will be a golf outing that Thursday. If interested please register on line. http://www.iikiwanis.org/Page/22734

Gail Dobbins introduced Dale Traxler who told us about an interesting Bloomington Kiwanis fact. In the 1980's Kiwanis clubs were asked to initiate a brand new service that they could complete in one year. Chuck Witte was passionate about relieving the fears children had about testifying in court. With the support of judges and lawyers, Kathy Pratt, and Dave an artist from State Farm a coloring book was developed. Chuck's daughter and other Kiwanis members were models. Chuck also wrote the captions. Several thousand copies were made and used by children for many years in McLean County. This is the only known book written for a Kiwanis club that had a copyright attached. Dale had a copy of the coloring book "Colors for the Courts" that he passed around at our meeting. 

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanis Club of Bloomington is dedicated to serving the local community through various service and fundraising projects. Our club has been in service to our community for more than 95 years. We are part of Kiwanis International, an organization serving children for over 100 years.

We'd love for you to come join us at one of our meetings or a service project. Please go to our Contact page and drop us a line! Someone will get back with you.
