Kiwanis Grand Slam Membership Drive: First Inning (3/20/15)

After the first inning the score is all tied at 12 runs. The Todd’s Tigers attempted to take the lead with a strong performance of inviting 2 visitors; however, Steve’s Crimson Tide offset the Tiger’s number of visitors with a large number of team members attending the meeting. Keep up the good work teams! We’ll see if a team can separate itself next week!

Team Captains Steve and Todd

The Kiwanis Club of Mansfield is made up of volunteers dedicated to improving the lives of children in Mansfield and around the World through the efforts of Kiwanis International and the Kiwanis International Foundation. During the Mansfield Kiwanis Grand Slam Membership Drive, members of the Club will be inviting like-minded members of the Mansfield Community to visit our Club to see if they have the heart and desire to join us in our mission.

That being said, we also like to have fun so we’ve decided to divide our Club into 2 teams to see which team can invite the most visitors and recruit the most new members from March 20th through May 15th. We’ve also adopted a baseball theme for the event so ever week is a new inning and a chance to score “runs” for the team. Our team captains are Todd Simmons and Steve Hallford and the teams are as follows:

Todd’s Tigers:                             Steve’s Crimson Tide:
Katie Watson                                  Phil Stover
