Perfect attendance is something you occassionally hear of over a four-year high school term, but what about perfect attendance for 50 years? That’s exactly what one Noon Kiwanis Club member has done in Washington.

Dean Garrett has had perfect attendance with the club since 1967. President Dean Kurtz calls the 50 consecutive yeras “astonishing.” Garrett was also recently honored as a Walter Zeller Fellow. Garrett says his most memorable meeting was while traveling with a club from Cedar Falls and mid-flight from Des Moines to Spain their president called the meeting to order. The club meets each Wednesday at noon on the third floor of the Washington YMCA.
