The Hope Kiwanis Club had a program Tuesday March 4th from one of their own members, Bob Willis. Willis talked about the history of the Kiwanis Club with memories of such former members of Guy Grigg, Henry Haynes, Stan Parris, Dr. Lynn Harris, E.P. Young, Jr., Roy Taylor, Dr. Jim McKenzie, Dean Murphy, and others. He talked about Harry Hawthorne's famous "flapper fanny" dance routine from the old Kiwanis Variety Show as well some of the show's famous "end men". He also remembered when the club had a popcorn sale as a fund-raiser. The older members especially enjoyed remembering some of their former Kiwanis colleagues.

The Hope Lions Club had a "double-barrelled" program for Monday March 3rd. Patricia Thomas from Historic Washington State Park talked about the Jonquil Festival which is coming March 14th, 15th, and 16th. Aneesah Rasheed from the Rick Evans Grandview Prairie Consevation Education Center near Columbus talked about her facility's coming events and such features as the "3-D Archery Range". The Lions had lots of questions for both ladies and left with a good bit of information about Jonquil Festival as well as the Rick Evans Grandview Prairie C.E.C.
Under the heading of "old friends" we will file this photo of Dr. Don and Debbie Freel. The Freels now reside in east Texas but come back to Hope to visit periodically and are always warmly received at the Lions Club. Dr. Freel joined the Hope club in 1965 and was quite active locally until the couple moved. Debbie was one of the first female Hope Lions. The Lions were pleased to welcome back their old friends for the meeting.
