This is an exciting time to be a Kiwanian. There is a lot of positive energy, enthusiasm and fun happening in Kiwanis Clubs all over the Rocky Mountain District. Please sign up and attend the District Convention this August 7 - 10 in Grand Junction, CO. We are looking forward to sharing the best of Grand Junction with all of you. There will be fun and interesting activities, forums, and presentations. We have a walk for Eliminate planned, a golf outing at our premier Redlands Mesa Golf Course, and a service project - Kids Aid! And don't forget to take home a box or two of Palisade peaches. Our two chairpersons, Deb Horwitz and Stephanie Tuin have added their love of Kiwanis through a fresh look at relevance, education, entertainment, and of course, fun! The hospitality suite is going to be in full swing by Thursday evening: thank you to our host, John Crowfoot. Remember to bring your gift baskets, tri-fold Kiwanis Club project displays and food items for our backpack service project for kids.
In early June I joined fifteen members of the Rocky Mountain District at the Kiwanis International "Formula" kickoff held in Las Vegas. It was very worthwhile and we left feeling great and energized about our role in strengthening the membership in the Rocky Mountain District. The "Formula" is simple; Love It, Share It, Live It! Here is the concept in a nutshell; Talk about why you love your club with your fellow members. Get your creative juices flowing. Then share these ideas with everyone you know. You could be talking to your future club president or future chairperson. We must strengthen the leadership within our clubs and it all starts with you! You've shown you Love It and you've Shared It, now Live it! Engage in your club activities, especially community service.
The Rocky Mountain District is up 45 members through June 2014! That is fantastic yet I believe we can do even better! We can each bring in one new member between now and October 1st. Love It - Share It - Live It. New members are our future. You can make a difference.
Thank you for loving Kiwanis.
