Alta Kiwanis Notes

Friday, April 13, 2012

The Alta Kiwanis met Tuesday, April 10 at Wel-Life

Steve Lickiss - Northwest Iowa Mediation - was our Tuesday morning speaker. Steve, along with Sue Garvin - a social worker, have set up a mediation business in the old Garden Gate location in Alta.

They mediate disputes involving divorces, lawsuits, and probate. Steve described their job as a mix of mediation and therapy as they address problems behind disputes in an attempt to preserve the relationship of the parties involved.

Ditch cleaning is set for Friday, April 20 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Kiwanis members assisted by our fifth grade P.I.E. partners pick trash from ditches in an area from the fairgrounds to the Vigorena plant.

Bicycle safety day will be Friday, May 4 in the elementary school parking lot. There will be two sessions - second graders at 9 a.m. and third graders at 1 p.m.

Alta Kiwanis decided to donate 25% of money from our pancake fund-raiser to the Eliminate project each year for three years.

Currently, we are recruiting new members. If anyone is interested in joining, we meet every Tuesday morning at Wel-Life.
