My Fellow Kiwanians,
You are the greatest “GIVERS” and CHAMPIONS for the children in each of your communities. I thank each of you for making this one of the most memorable years of my life.
It has been my HONOR to SERVE WITH YOU as your Governor. This year, and for many years, I have consistently ended all speeches and written correspondence in this very simple but heartfelt way: THANKS FOR ALL Y’ALL DO FOR KIWANIS AND THE YOUTH WE SERVE.
Yours in Kiwanis Service,

What if you could save a baby's life?
With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
