On Wednesday evening, June 14th, my wife and I plus our 3 kids joined the other hundred or so volunteers to pack and prepare bags of food for MISD children at the Mansfield Cares Warehouse located at 150 South 6th Avenue just west of downtown Mansfield.
After a prayer for the group, Phil Stover, a Director for the Feed the Kids Program and fellow Kiwanian, requested my family man the tables to assist the volunteers with packing the cereal, oatmeal, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, and ramen noodles. This job required us to remind the other volunteers packing the bags how much of each item to pack, ensure that all items remained well stocked, and remove empty boxes from the tables to be broken down for recycling.

On Friday, June 9, 2017, Todd Simmons continued his series of interviews of the newest members of Mansfield Kiwanis by sitting down with Michael Crippen.
Mike moved to the Mansfield area in January 2015 with his wife, Beth, and grandson, Aiden, from Florida as a result of Beth’s new job. Please click on the following link to learn more about Michael. Mansfield Kiwanis Newsletter 2017-06-15
On Saturday, June 10th members of the Mansfield Kiwanis and their families gathered for a great evening of fun and fellowship on Gary Mill’s back patio.
All who attended were treated to a great evening of getting to know not only our members better but also meeting the families of our members. Once again, I believe this year proved that we don’t really know our fellow members until we’ve given a member’s spouse and/or child the opportunity to tell us who that member truly is when not attending a Kiwanis function.
The evening was made even more incredible by all the delicious food prepared and brought by our members to share. Plus, we should all give Steve Hallford a huge thank you for braving the heat of the grill to prepare the burgers and hot dogs.
Every year we say those who miss our family socials really miss out on an opportunity to have a good time and get to know your fellow Club members.
Thank you Gary for letting us use your patio for the event and thanks to all members and their families that attended!
