Hello LaMissTenn!

Now that we have all had a whole week to recover from Tioga, I'm ready to update!

First of all, a huge shout out to Commissioner Bobby Schroeder and his co-chairs, Brandy Bowen and Tommy Stephenson for such a great event. It seems that pretty much everyone had a great time at Tioga. A few noteworthy tidbits for you all:

Penny Wars...together, we raised 1,283.91 for the International Tomorrow Fund at Tioga. Yes, this number is smaller than what was announced at the event, and this is because it seems that there was some money that got double counted. Still, this number is phenomenal and I thank all of you who helped me count over the weekend.

International Awards...Congratulations to Lauren Call, UNO president, for receieving a Carthage Pullman Award at Tioga, and Bobby Schroeder for receiving a Sapphire Circle Award at Tioga. Both of these are extremely prestigious awards that only a small number of CKI Members have been awarded to date.

Mr. and Ms. Tioga titles went to the boys of Xavier University and Stephanie Crow of Centenary College. This award is given to a male and female every year who shows spirit, leadership, and fellowship while at Tioga. The Xavier boys were too hard to decide between, so it was given to all of them to share. Congrats!

Board Meeting...Yes, the district board met before Tioga began on Friday. We discussed some bylaw changes, the Council of Presidents proposal, and various other things. Minutes from that meeting will be posted asap.

Paperwork...Club presidents who were there should have received your paperwork for paying dues to International. If you were not there and have not gotten yours from your LTG, I have it and will be mailing them out by the end of this week. If you have questions about how to fill out the papers or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me or your LTG.

Directory...The directory has been distributed to all club officers, district board members and district cabinet members. If you are one of these people and have not received your copy, let me know and I will mail one to you asap. If you have corrections, please let me know that as well. The file will be posted as a PDF to the e-group in the near future as well.

Membership Handbook...MD&E Chair Candace Griffin distributed a district member handbook to club presidents and board members at Tioga. If you did not get a copy and would like one, please email her at This is a great resource for MD&E chairs to share with their members.

That's all for me for now! Have a great week everyone!
