Planning a 50 year Anniversary

The Kiwanis Club of Seward will celebrate our 50th Anniversary this year while the Parent Club celebrates its 100th. This picture was taken 10 years ago at the time of the 40th Anniversary.  Jack Duensing, Doc Winter and Alan Loftis were Charter members and Fritzi Juergensen was the wife of Walter “J” Juergensen, founding President of the Club. Marv Taylor and Jack are co-chairs of the local celebration committee. We met today and I was assigned the task of developing a DVD to be shown during the social hour of the July 13 gala event. Fritzi served as  historian the first 25-30 years of the Clubs existence. Her material will be most useful in preparing a display and for the DVD.  I have taken many pictures over the years since becoming a member (including this one) and will go back through my files to cover the more recent years. I also invite the membership to provide any pictures that might be added to the showing. Marv says this is going to be a “Once in a Lifetime Event” so hopefully we can make it  Enjoyable.
