The Alexandria Kiwanis Club invites its members and the public to hear a special speaker at its Monday, March 23 lunch.
Past Kiwanis international president (1980-81) Merald Enstad of Fergus Falls will speak to the club about being a Kiwanian and what it means to him.
Enstad, who is now more than 90 years old, has moved though the local chairs, the Minnesota Dakotas District chairs, served as the international trustee and ultimately, as the international president of the organization.
He brings a wealth of knowledge about how the Kiwanis organization has transitioned over the decades to continue to change the world, one community and one child at a time.
“During difficult economic times, it is a privilege to have an opportunity to learn from a leader who has successfully navigated through similar challenges in the past,” noted Gail Miller, president of the Alexandria Kiwanis in a news release.
The event will take place at noon at the Broadway Ballroom, 115 30th Avenue East, Alexandria. Cost for the lunch is $10, payable at the door. Reserve your spot by e-mailing ALASD@REA-ALP.COM.
In recognition of Enstad’s visit, the Alexandria City Council has proclaimed March 23 as “Merle Enstad Day” in Alexandria.
