2020 EUROPEAN CONVENTION : A Message from KI-EF President Chris Decorte

Further to the developments of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and in line with the decisions of public authorities in many countries, KI-EF’s Board has taken the difficult decision to cancel the 53rd European Convention in Brugge. Members who had already booked and paid for the dinners and excursions will be reimbursed. Please be patient as we proceed with individual reimbursements.

Thank you for all you do for Kiwanis. In this uncertain period, everyone's health comes first, so take good care of yourself and your loved ones!

Take a good look at the people around you: family, friends, colleagues and business partners. You will probably realise that you owe them a lot. Personal achievement and happiness may have been largely your own doing, but without support of the others you would have gotten nowhere. The age of pure individualism fortunately lies behind us: you may participate to society again, put something back. And that is exactly what Kiwanis does: provide support to those who really need it. Nunc Kee-wanis, you read it right, "we let ourselves be known", is a direct translation from Ochipew, one of the native languages of North America. This Amerindian phrase may sound incomprehensible, but for Kiwanis, it represents a clear message. Because we have a clear message too.
