MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR Hello my fellow CKI'ers! My name is Tamara Edgin and am honored to call myself your 2013-2014 Missouri Arkansas District Governor. Being four months into this new CKI year and my new role as your Governor, I can proudly say that the Missouri Arkansas District is off to a great start! The district is currently planning some awesome events including our annual Fall Service MADness(FSM) and District Convention, and for the first time ever we will also be hosting a District Large Scale Service Project! This year’s annual FSM will be a Clue Mystery theme, so grab your magnifying glasses and Sherlock pipes to come discover the mystery of Service! Information about each event is slowly being leaked onto our Website and Facebook, so keep an eye out for that. Keep in mind; we also would love to hear your input about anything related to the district. To do so get in touch with any district officer, so your voice can be heard and we can represent the district well. I have an open door policy, so feel free to contact me anytime and I will do my best to serve you. I look forward to serving with you this year, and I challenge us all to represent the Missouri Arkansas District of Circle K International (MADCKI) with pride and go MAD!
