A Message to Division 27 from Tuscola Kiwanis


We sent out letters in 2006,

New members we added ten,

We invited more in 2007,

Our numbers increased again!


So glad we've added the Conns,

The names are Marge and Mark,

More spouses - the Hoels Sherrie and Tim,

A regular Noah's Ark!


Then came Tom S. and Laura M.

Plus Toppy and Elaine,

Our meeting room got crowded,

We sang a glad refrain.


And rumor has it - two more are coming,

A gift from Santa Claus,

Two fine additions to our club

Named Jonda and Jason Maus.


To all the clubs in our division,

Please put your minds at peace,

No matter what your rhyme or reason,

Your numbers can increase!


-Dave Dobson, Semi-Official Poet Laureate
