Kiwanis Completes Rock Springs Pledge

On Saturday December 1st more than 100 Kiwanians from across the state representing more than 40 clubs gathered at Rock Springs 4-H Camp to celebrate the final payment of the quarter million dollar pledge made by the Kansas District of Kiwanis International.

The money was used to rehab the lower level of Heritage Hall which has been renamed The Kansas Kiwanis Conference Center.

Kiwanians from across Kansas recognize the experiences provided at Rock Springs are foundations to growing Kansas leaders and serving today’s families and communities.

The final payment was presented to Jake Worcester, president and CEO of the Kansas 4-H Foundation by Dave Hurrelbrink co-chair of the Kiwanis project.

Kiwanis has utilized Rock Springs for a mid-year meeting and the Key Leader leadership program has been held at the facility for the past several years. Kiwanis leaders have stated that the partnership formed with the 4-H Foundation for this project is a good mix and will definitely continue in the future. This sentiment was echoed by Worcester who stated that he was impressed that Kiwanis stepped up, made the original commitment and fulfilled the pledge.

Todd Sheppard on Wire Fraud

Todd Sheppard of Charleson and Wilson, Bonded Abstractors, Inc., talked about preventing wire fraud. His advice is if you get asked to wire funds, always stop and place a phone call to the person you think requested the money using a number you got from a source other than the email or mail you received. Don’t wire funds at all if at all possible.
