Sam Jennison (above), owner of The Drake Restaurant in Burlington, Iowa offered advice on being happy by using his formula, "Attitude + Goal + Values = Behavior" 

Sam is a successful businessman in the Burlington area and is the author of two hooks, one of them called "Sam Sez" which is a collection of sayings he has collected over the years.  He first published a book with 500 such sayings, and has now collected 300 more to add to his book.

President Jason Thomas announced a new fundraiser we will look into.  The Rockford Kiwanis Club is having success selling sheets that have a 1,000 thread count.  Sheets sell for $35.  He says this is something we could look into.  Debbie suggested partnering with a local retail store.

Reminder: As a member of the Macomb Kiwanis Club, you are enrtitled to a 5 cent per gallon discount at the Hy Vee gas station.  Just show the cashier some form of Kiwanis identification.


  • Kerrie - happy her daughter Lauren was with her at the meeting
  • Lauren - happy to be with her mother
  • Tim - happy for the nice weather
  • Sam - nice to have met John Moon

We'll be working on a news release to call attention to the 100th anniversary of Kiwanis International this year and to promote our annual Pancake Day in April and to encourage more people in the community to join us as members. Jason would like each member to bring in two new members this year.  

We're honored to have received this new Blue Level Today Club patch from Kiwanis International.

That means our clubs gifts to the Kiwanis International Foundation reached a per member giving average of $10.00
