The Bay Village Kiwanis 2017-2018 Installation dinner was held on Sept. 26 at Mahle’s Restaurant in Westlake. Division 14 Lt. Governor Matt Rawlings was in attendance for the installation of the new officers. 

The outgoing president, Alan Waddle, was the Master Of Ceremonies. Serving as president for the coming year is Foster McMasters with Rich Oldrieve as president-elect and Pat Mosier as vice president. Russ Bauknecht is the treasurer serving for another year, with Ed Colleran as the secretary. The 2017-2018 board of directors consists of Maynard Bauer, Jim Comienski, Clint Keener, Linda Potter, Gerald Stavlas and Gordon Taylor.

Serving as an officer for a service organization is a sacrifice often unnoticed by people outside of the organization. We wish to welcome and thank them for their eagerness to support the Club.

Lest we forget the outgoing officers, Alan Waddle as president, Rich Oldrieve as vice president, Pat Mosier as secretary and George MacDonald (deceased) as past president. Serving as the 2016-2017 board of directors was Maynard Bauer, John Black, Clint Keener, Linda Potter, Gordon Taylor, Ed Colleran and Jim Comienski. They all deserve our thanks for giving of their time and labor for the betterment of the community and the world.
