Mayor Phil Rice has declared May as Kiwanis Month in the city of Anoka. Rice read the proclamation at the April 17 city council meeting, citing the good work the 60 members of the Anoka Area Kiwanis Club do to provide a variety of community services, especially for youth.
May also marks the 90th anniversary of the local Kiwanis Club.
Prior to the proclamation, President Michael Seymour and members Shirley Curbow, Les Clemmons, Jan Anderson, Lyle Root and Chuck Drury told the city council about various activities of their club. Two councilmembers, Steve Schmidt and Jeff Weaver, are also Anoka Kiwanis members.
The club will celebrate its 90th anniversary at Charter Night on Thursday, May 17 at Majestic Oaks. Social hour starts at 6 p.m. with dinner and program starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be a silent auction as well. Tickets for the dinner are $25 per person with reservations made by May 5. If you are not a Kiwanis member but would like to attend, the group would love to have you. Call Jan Clemens at 763-753-2455 for more information or to make a reservation.
