November 4th Meeting

We had another "standing room only" turnout for Kiva Club.  During the meeting, we made three loans.  WAY TO GO!!!  The members also came up with some great fundraising ideas and were asked to finalize those ideas for our next meeting on November 11.  We are also going to elect officers at the upcoming meeting.  If you are interested in running for a position, please prepare a short speech to give to the club. 

With a big thank you to Justin Malek, you can now find us on Facebook.
