New Red River Kiwanis Club Elects Officers

People from the parish interested in starting a Kiwanis club in Red River Parish met Thursday night for an organizational meeting.  Representatives of the sponsoring club, the Natchitoches Kiwanis along with various officials of the national program made presentations to the group on the purpose, structure, and community programs of Kiwanis.

About 40 people have joined the new club and more are expected in the coming days.  The new members will all be considered charter members of Red River Kiwanis.

Several people in the community volunteered to take the officer positions in the club.  They are:

President – Kristi Hoeflinger

President Elect – Alverster Barfield

Treasurer – Kelly Lee

Secretary – Lillie McDonald

Membership Chairperson – Ginny Hines

In addition, five people volunteered to be on the board of directors.  They are Tangela Maxwell, Susan Taylor, Thom Hoeflinger, Mary Taylor and Edna Webb.

Members of the new club elected all of the volunteers to those positions.

A meeting date of the third Monday of each month was established.  The club will meet at First Methodist Church at 5:00 pm.  Therefore, next Monday, October 17th will be the next meeting.
