Foundation (All Members)
This coming Saturday – February 17 – there will be a meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Weston Foundation members (you are a member of the club and the foundation). It will occur during the regular Saturday morning meeting. Please attend! We need a quorum.
Purpose of the meeting of Foundation members is to seek your approval for the beneficiaries of the 2018 ½ Marathon race. Your Foundation Board of Trustees has voted to recommend to you that the primary beneficiary be the Connecticut Food Bank and its Backpack program which supplies weekend meals to Connecticut kids who need them.
Last year’s ½ Marathon beneficiary was also the Connecticut Food Bank. The proceeds from that marathon provided 24,000 meals for 500 Connecticut kids for eight weeks! Most of our runners are from Connecticut and the feeling was that the Connecticut Food Bank benefits reach into many communities where runners live.
Also to be considered at the Foundation member meeting is the possible retention of 20% of the marathon’s net profits in the Foundation for other needy organizations.
