Elgin Golden K Kiwanis take a field trip to Lake Geneva

About 50 members of the Elgin Golden K Kiwanis recently enjoyed a late July Lake Geneva cruise.

Club members met at Pier 290 in Williams Bay, Geneva Lake, Wisconsin. Club President Lyle Wolff planned and arranged this exciting outing.

Wolff is an engineer on the steamboat Louise, which is part of the fleet of Lake Geneva Cruise Line. The club wishes to thank Wolff for making this possible.

Pier 290 furnished a great luncheon for the Golden K Kiwanis.
