And while we are on the topic of great, Tina Blinsman won the award for "Kiwanis of the Year" for 2016. Tina was responsible for getting the Tuesday "Night Meeting" started which takes place the third week of the month at Marcos from 6 to 7 pm. Tina also brought in the idea and got the program going for the "Free Little Library Project". A project designed to improve literacy for the children in the community and was responsible for bringing in the most new members last year. Congratulation Tina!
