Meeting notes: The special event this week was a demonstration of West High's third place Rube Goldberg machine, presented by Coach Jerry Merz and team member Patrick Jensen. The machine showed how batman can save the world with 21 illogical but imaginative feats.

Quiz: President Taylor asked us to think about three questions: (a) What do Club members need to do? (b) What should members expect from the Club? (c) What is Kiwanis?

Member news: Warren Breitlow transferred to the Lutheran Home.

Interclub: We are planning to meet with the Waukesha club at noon on Thursday, April 26, at the Easter Seals Building, 505 Northview Road, to help celebrate the Waukesha club's ninetieth anniversary.
