Updated May 6: President's Message, Calendar


This plaque at the Kiwanis Learning Garden in Old Town recognizes the original effort by Kay Ballinger and Mike Williams to implement Steve Schroeder's 1998 Presidential Project.  A review of the history and extraordinary benefits derived from the Garden were presented to SWD Gov. Iafratto prior to the Division 2 luncheon on May 20.

May 20 meeting of Div. 2 with SWD Gov. Michael Iafratto, his wife and YCPO Chair Dr. Melody, and reps from all 9 Div 2 Clubs. Each club reviewed their major efforts and plans for continued exceptional service activities.


Volunteers from both our K Kids Clubs showed their spirit on a chilly but brilliant Friday evening, to cheer hundreds of athletes marching in for the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics New Mexcio State Games.  Members of our club stayed in the long and prominent shadows to serve as photographers as well !

President – Celeste Largo

Vice Pres – Sierra Largo

Sects/Treasurer – Nicholas Briones

Key Club members just turned in their volunteer hours.  They have put in a lot of time considering many are active in other activities at Manzano.  Most of them are also headed to help Jeff Rowe with parking at the Renaissance Fair at the Balloon Park this weekend!  There will be no meeting on May 2 or May 16 but on May 9th they are having a luncheon to celebrate the year and to celebrate the four graduating Seniors.

The Key Club sponsor this year, Carrie Eaton, has done a wonderful job of leadership!!
