Dear Kiwanis friends,
The calendar marks end of September. It is time to say goodbye.
Thursday next new boards will anywhere take over. A special congrats to my successor Jon Fadri and his team of EC members, governors and representatives, wishing them a fruitful year full of activity and help for the children, hopefully with less covid-19 problems and a lot of new ideas and members.
SERVING THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD
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.
