Thanks to all of you for sharing the Kiwanis message with your friends and colleagues. Our district has a net growth of 64 new Kiwanian. Let us keep working to have a positive net growth of one member for all our clubs.
Our District Convention:
I am inviting you, your family and friends to our district convention at Marriott Madison West, in Middleton, WI from August 15 to 17. The Madison-Middleton area has a lot to offer for everyone. There are lots of things to see and do. Turn it into a family vacation.
We are organizing tours of the State Capitol, beautiful Olbrich Gardens, Vilas Park Zoo, Epic Center, Capital Brewery and much more. There will be exciting entertainment. And of course, we will have workshops to meet all your Kiwanis learning needs.
There is no registration fee when you register early. Please register soon. Every club already pays $90 for the convention. Take advantage of your own money. Let the fun, fellowship and service begin!
The luncheon on Saturday, August 16, 2014 will be a celebration of Kiwanis’
upcoming 100th anniversary. On that occasion we will also recognize the oldest clubs in the district (50 years or older) and the longest-serving members (40 years or longer). This is a wonderful opportunity to invite your children and grandchildren to share this event with them. This event is not to be missed!
I have had the honor and privilege of visiting many clubs and divisions and helping with their service projects. From organizing parties for people with disabilities to repairing a children’s theater to building Little Free Libraries, you all are putting smiles on so many faces! Keep up the good work!
A big thank-you to all the clubs which have already contributed to the pool project. The accessible pool at Camp Wawbeek, an Easter Seal Society camp near Wisconsin Dells, is now open to the campers. It will be formally inaugurated on July 17, 2014. We still need to raise more money to pay for the project. Please contribute soon and generously. Kiwanis generosity will be appreciated by the campers for many years to come.
Governor’s Major emphasis projects: Past Governor Lynn Messer’s project (ipads for autism) is progressing well. Many clubs have participated in this project for the 2nd year in a row. You are making a difference!
See you in August.
