The Kiwanis Club of Mansfield is hosting its annual Children’s Magic Show on Saturday, March 14, 2015, at 3:00 PM. The Magic Show will be held at the First Baptist Church – Mansfield located at 1800 E. Broad ST, Mansfield, TX 76063. All tickets are $10 and proceeds from the event will go to support Kiwanis charitable programs. Please join us for this great children’s activity! If you have questions about the event or want tickets, please contact the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Kiwanis Club of Mansfield was thrilled to host a former member, Pete Shryock, at its meeting on February 13, 2015, especially since Pete dropped-in with a donation from the Mansfield Area Marines to support the Feed the Kids for Summer Program. Thank you Pete for visiting and bringing the check from the Mansfield Area Marines!
If you’re a member of our Club, have you ever wondered why that member sitting across the table from you joined the Club? Or, if you’re not a member, have you ever wondered why someone chooses to join Kiwanis. Our Club President asked the members to secretly submit their reasons and I’ve included some the responses below:
Joined Kiwanis to become part of an organization that provided a service to our community and children.
Followed my Father’s example. He was a Kiwanis Member.
Opportunity to meet “new” people and become involved in the community.
I Served with Kiwanis in college and sought a club out after my employer suggested I get involved with a community organization.
Of course, many of our Club Members admitted that they were strong armed by Swede Nyberg with Swede’s insistence that their car keys would only be returned when the individual agreed to join Swede for breakfast at the next Kiwanis meeting. (Swede was the former owner of a tire shop in Mansfield with a big heart for Kiwanis).
Regardless of why a member joins, the pattern is clear: a member was invited to attend and had a desire to get involved and make the community better. Do you want to make Mansfield better? Please join us for breakfast on Friday. We promise not to take your keys.
And now for the rest of the story…Swede remains active in Kiwanis with his club in the Pacific Northwest. He also receives updates on our Club through this website and remains a very good friend of the Kiwanis Club of Mansfield.
