What a Fantastic Christmas Interclub we had last Thursday over at  Mamacitas.
     What a wonderful place to hold a get together like our Christmas Interclub last Thursday.  We had almost every seat in our room filled with either Kiwanis members or Kiwanis members and their significant other.  At last count it was 45 or so in attendance.  We had Christmas music sung by everyone and even a self developed quartet with John Polk, Charles Walts, Rob Martin and Del Brown singing three Christmas songs.  Everyone ordered from the menu and even with everything that President Balkman covered, we still were able to get out a a very decent hour.  It was very well planned.  Thanks to all of those who had a hand in setting the dining facilities and making sure name tags were available, and everyone had a p;lace to sit, thanks to Mamacitas.  By the way our own Charles Johnson won the Big Bucks for our club.
