Home Design Center topic at Kiwanis

Jan Barnes introduced Carmen Waldie, owner, and Corey Washburn, accessories and blinds specialist, from Home Design Center at the Kiwanis meeting.

Waldie joined the business seven years ago after painting and wallpapering for more than 15 years. Washburn started in September of 2013 when he moved back from Fargo. Their former Kitchen Solvers building is now being used for staining and other things. They took over the Valley Flooring store in Valley City when Mike Metcalf retired, so they now run both locations. They are not just a kitchen remodeling store anymore. They work in all areas of the home. Their showroom has kitchens, bathrooms, lighting fixures, cabinets, flooring, countertop materials and much more. The store is open from 8:30 to 5:30 Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. They like to stay within a 50-mile radius.

President Janna Bergsted led the meeting with 29 members attending. It was spouses day and the following spouses were in attendance: Wendy Hager, Rod Wilhem, Ruth Urdahl, Marlene Axtman and Vivian Welsh. There were three guests also attending: Amanda Thrift and Chelsie Francis, from Wells Fargo, and the Rev. Erik Weber from St John’s Lutheran Church.

Don Caine led the group singing accompanied by Sharon Caine. Tim Burchill collected “Happy Dollars” for Camp Rokiwan.

On July 7, R.M. Stoudt presented its check for Kiwanis members test driving their cars. This money will go to the Eliminate Program. July 21 is the date for the Eliminate auction at the Masonic Lodge in the evening. There will be no meeting that day.

Anyone interested in joining Kiwanis is encouraged to email Jamestown or join members for a Monday noon meeting at the Legacy Center.
