Omaha Westside Kiwanis Club Meeting Minutes August 25, 2021


Westside Kiwanis Club Meeting


Attending:  Frank Frerich, Bruce Moulton, Jack Jackson, Dave Huelsmann, Barb St John, Joann Feller, John Seigel,...

Linda Jones, Rod Jones, Dennis Cronin

Our speaker was Tim Thompson from Think Healthcare Systems. This system looks at the whole person. They coordinate everything with a Care Team. This is made easier by using electronic medical records.


 Frank sent out an email with the invitation for the installation dinner on Sept 21st at Champions.  Please let Frank know your choice for your meal and for your guest. The choices are Chicken Marsala, Top Sirloin or Simply Salmon. The meal is $25.00 per person. You can mail a check to Vern or you can pay Barb. Frank will check with Champions to see if sending them a check in the mail after the dinner will still be acceptable.

 A discussion was held on continuing our meetings at Legends or moving to Brazen Head. John Seigel made a motion to continue our meetings at Legends and skip our meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of the month starting in September.  Joann Fuller seconded it.  Everyone voted to accept it.


 Laurie Coates from Ronald McDonald House was scheduled as our speaker for September 15th. She has been rescheduled to September 22nd.


 Dennis Cronin asked for help with the flags on September 6th and September 11th. He will send out a request for helpers.


 Joann Fuller has not received a response from Benson regarding the Key Club. She will wait until the 2nd semester to pursue this.


 Barb St John made some changes for serving dinner to the Ronald McDonald House on August 23rd. The change was necessary due to RM House no longer allowing meals to be prepared in house. They are no longer allowing visitor’s or tours either.  This is because of Covid numbers climbing. We froze as much of the supplies for the meal as possible to use when they lift the restrictions again.  She ordered box lunches from Hyvee to be delivered at 5:30 on the 23rd. Each lunch box had a sandwich, chips, fresh fruit and a cookie.  Laurie Coates from RM House said they loved the meals. They don’t get a lot of fresh fruit and considered this a wonderful treat.


Joann Fuller, Frank Frerich, Barb St John and Dave Huelsmann will be selling Husker flags at 2 different McDonald’s on August 27th from 6 am to 9 am.  The proceeds will go to R M House.

 Frank received a message from Jack Pagel from Greater Omaha. He will have a board meeting on August 25th to discuss joining the two clubs together.  He will take the board’s decision to the members on August 30th. He will let Frank know their decision.


 John Seigel collected Happy Buck’s.



Next Meeting is at Legends at noon on September 1st
