Dear Fellow Kiwanians,
I love Christmas! It’s a time of celebration, decorations, parties, time with family and friends. My hope is that we all will take time to slow down and enjoy the season. Whatever you’re religious or spiritual beliefs are, this is a time to reflect, to share love and to practice kindness.
As Kiwanians we celebrate the season through volunteerism. Most clubs engage in service projects that provide for children in need; ringing bells for the Salvation Army, sponsoring “Breakfast with Santa” events, providing food, clothing, and toys for kids who otherwise would not have Christmas. Kiwanians make a big difference in the lives of children in our communities.
As we pass on the Kiwanis holiday cheer to others, please consider inviting your family, friends, and neighbors to join you in spreading Christmas cheer by taking part in the projects that make being a Kiwanian something we are very proud of and something we love to do. Could there be a better way or better time to introduce a potential new member to Kiwanis?
Last year we celebrated being a Kiwanian through the Heart of Kiwanis. We worked together to clarify the value of being a member of Kiwanis. This year we continue to embrace all we love about Kiwanis; service projects, fun, friendships, the entire Kiwanis Family experience. Our Service Leadership Programs allow us to share our lives with children; and just as importantly, for them to share their lives with us. Each of us as Kiwanians are blessed to see the changes that these programs bring into the student’s lives.
I wish you all the happiest holidays filled with joy, warmth and love. Best wishes for a New Year bright with promise and dreams fulfilled.
