Our Mission!

Greet­ings, Fel­low Tigers,

We are almost to Sep¬≠tem¬≠ber, the last month of the Kiwa¬≠nis year.  And what a year it has been, with a glob¬≠al pandem¬≠ic, racial ten¬≠sions, shaky economies, and extreme weath¬≠er conditions.

Still, you, the Eye of the Tiger eKi¬≠wa¬≠nis mem¬≠bers, con¬≠tin¬≠ue with your strong lead¬≠er¬≠ship. We cur¬≠rent¬≠ly have 73 awe¬≠some mem¬≠bers, an increase of 25 for this year. We are #2 out of 452 clubs in the Cal¬≠i¬≠for¬≠nia-Neva¬≠da-Hawaii in the num¬≠ber of mem¬≠bers added. Our growth enables us to devel¬≠op, encour¬≠age, and sup¬≠port each oth¬≠er in the cul¬≠ture of growth. And we are still grow¬≠ing, thanks to you!

The num¬≠ber of new club open¬≠ings is a mov¬≠ing and increas¬≠ing total, again thanks to you, as you find cre¬≠ative ways to open clubs in this unpre¬≠dictable time.  Accord¬≠ing to the Kiwa¬≠nis Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al 2019‚Äď20 Mem¬≠ber¬≠ship Met¬≠rics (cur¬≠rent as of July 30), 41 clubs have been com¬≠plet¬≠ed in the Amer¬≠i¬≠c¬≠as and 109 clubs glob¬≠al¬≠ly. The new club open¬≠ing forms indi¬≠cate that mem¬≠bers of the Eye of the Tiger eKi¬≠wa¬≠nis opened 24 of those 41 clubs in the Amer¬≠i¬≠c¬≠as and 25 of 109 clubs glob¬≠al¬≠ly. Thank you for grow¬≠ing Kiwanis!

As of today, we have 32 more days in the 2019‚Äď2020 Kiwa¬≠nis year. So, there is still time to make calls, send texts and mes¬≠sages, respond to every social media ‚Äúlike‚ÄĚ of Kiwa¬≠nis, meet in per¬≠son or vir¬≠tu¬≠al¬≠ly, and add more mem¬≠bers and clubs to serve chil¬≠dren. In the words of Win¬≠ston Churchill, ‚ÄúThis is no time for ease and com¬≠fort. It is time to dare and endure.‚ÄĚ In the words of Gand¬≠hi, ‚ÄúThe future depends on what you do today.‚ÄĚ And as our own Allen Yer¬≠govich says, ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs time to get quacking.‚ÄĚ

Lead on. Let‚Äôs grow!
