Programs at Jack's


Kiwanis Golden K celebrated Valentine's Day with a noon luncheon on February 11, 2016, at Jack’s Gourmet Restaurant. A number of GK members and their spouses enjoyed a sumptuous meal while the Boonslick Chordbusters Barbershop quartet entertained the revelers with a number of romantic tunes. At one point, the Chordbusters singled out Verna Rhodes, wife of member Jim Rhodes, who sat before them while they crooned “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”.

GK member Robert (Bob) Lee, who marked his 100th birthday on February 19, was the recipient of two special awards. Golden K President Gordon Brown wrote to Susan Petrisin, president of Kiwanis International, citing Lee’s upcoming 100th birthday and noting that he was a founding member of Golden K and actively involved in Aktion Club for adults with disabilities and other service leadership areas. She drafted a letter which was presented to him and also sent a replica of her President’s pin which was awarded to him during the luncheon. Our club also honored him by retitling our Key Leader Award the “Bob Lee Key Leader Award”. This is the award given to a Key Club high school student selected to attend the Kiwanis Leadership Camp.

Golden K Kiwanis celebrated Christmas with a sit-down dinner at Jack's Gourmet Restaurant at noon on December 10, 2015. GK Members and their spouses and guests were entertained by piano Christmas tunes and carols sung by vocalists Scott Marshall and Harlan Hackett. The pianist was Gary Smith. Following the dinner feast was a fun auction chanted by volunteer auctioneers Larry and Terri Atterberry, father and daughter team from Atterberry Auction & Realty Co., with the assistance of Spotter Jim Boillot. Items for the auction were supplied by GK members and included such things as home made cakes and cookies, bottled liquor, baskets of mixed goodies, meat & cheese platter, coffee beans, a Mizzou blanket, a screenprint, and personal labor such as cleaning. The auction raised over $3000 which will be used to fund activities supporting the welfare of children in Columbia and surrounding communities.
