The Kiwanis Club of Marco Island had a busy meeting on Thursday, November 18, 2010. Three kids from the Lely High School Band stopped by to show us a brief movie of the unveiling of the new band uniforms. The Kiwanis Club of Marco Island had donated funds for the purchase of new uniforms. The old ones were made of wool and were very old.

We inducted a new member to the club and are very proud to say that Jim von Rintein is our latest member. Jim von Rintein is a resident of Marco Island and CEO for the Collier County Chapter of the Red Cross. A perfect match to support the community of Marco Island – Kiwanis and the Red Cross.
