For These Men
DAKOTA PARKER PATRICK CHARLTON HARRY BRANDON
Dakota (President, Palmer Ridge Key Club), Patrick (President, Lewis-Palmer Key Club), and Harry (President, Monument Hill Kiwanis) were all caught in Lewis-Palmer High School after hours on October 8, 2014.
They were joined there by other Key Club and Kiwanis Club members and about 600 guests at the Annual Empty Bowl Dinner. The REWARD for their hard work and dedication to the community was more than $20,000 for the local charity, Tri-Lakes Cares.
Similar community service events by Kiwanis clubs and their sponsored youth programs are occurring everywhere in the Rocky Mountain District of Kiwanis. We Kiwanians know that because we are doing them, but many in our communities don’t know. Let’s use our initiative and talent to get the word out about Kiwanis. It is important to do that without a significant negative impact on our budgets. A few ideas that have been discussed are to target organizations in our communities for speakers at our clubs and ask to make a presentation at their organization about Kiwanis. Write our newsletters to target the general public and ask to leave copies at local hair cutting/styling places, business offices with waiting rooms, and so on. When we finish with our Kiwanis magazines, see if we can leave them at these places also. While not everyone likes to have bumper stickers on their cars, we all read them. A simple bumper sticker with the single word KIWANIS may help – let’s discuss that as an option.
Every Kiwanis club or function we attend is filled with great Kiwanians with caring hearts and giving personalities. We always feel welcome, and we always leave feeling proud to be a Kiwanian. So, as we go about our business of Kiwanising each day, let’s find ways to share this great organization and the Kiwanis Family with others.
Do you have examples (with pictures please) of the Kiwanis Family working together or ideas on how to “get the word out?” If so, please send or email them to our new office at:
