Okay - you guys need to show your love for this blog... judging from the Shoutout comments, only 11 people check this blog. I really hope that's not true, right? So -- if you read the blog, or if you've EVER looked at it - please scroll down to my post on 4/28, and leave a Shoutout with your name and school. We may have to *sniff* discontinue the blog, or focus our attention elsewhere if it's true that not more than 20 people are reading it. Show your love!

Thanks to Alison for sending out the list of deadlines. And the district board for doing a great job, and almost finishing the first month in office. They get the shoutout for the day.

Regarding deadlines - May 4th is the deadline to get your stuff in for agenda points. Yes. Two noted agenda points that will be discussed are District Convention, and Summer Rally. If you have a location or proposal for either of these places - you need to make sure we get your agenda point/proposal packet. In the packet, what should be included is: what will we be doing, what activities will be planned, where will we stay, estimated cost, theme, etc. You cannot, and I repeat CANNOT complain about where the location of these events are if you didn't try to submit somewhere that you wanted it to be.

Today's International Corner: So.. you are all familiar with Aktion Club, correct? I hope so. There is Circle K, Key Club, Builders Club, K-Kids, Kiwanis, and Aktion Club. Aktion club is a branch of the Kiwanis family specially for those mentally challenged individuals. It really makes them feel special to be able to contribute to their community, and they do complete community service activities and have fun doing it. I've been asked to inform you that a special documentary, called the Collector of Bedford Street, has been made about Aktion club, and is a recipient of the Heartland Film Festival award, and other awards.. and is being shown on Cinemax. Here's more information:

The Collector of Bedford Street is a recipient of the Heartland Film
Festival's Crystal Heart Award and will debut on Cinemax the evenings of May
14 and 20 at 7 p.m. and the morning of May 27 at 7:15 a.m.

The film explores issues facing adults with disabilities and the need to
promote understanding and acceptance. It also sends a strong message about
how Aktion Club members (adults with disabilities) are important
contributors to the Kiwanis family and how they also make a significant
difference within the community.

To learn more about how your club can conduct a special club event during
the film's television debut visit the Aktion Club Web site at .

That's it for now - talk to you all later!!
