A Year to Remember!

Greet­ings Fel­low Tigers,

Here we are on Sep¬≠tem¬≠ber 30, the last day of the Kiwa¬≠nis year.  And what a year it has been, with a glob¬≠al pan¬≠dem¬≠ic, racial ten¬≠sions, shaky economies, and extreme weath¬≠er conditions.

And 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. Our growth as a club 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!

Accord¬≠ing to the Kiwa¬≠nis Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al 2019‚Äď20 Mem¬≠ber¬≠ship Matrix, 56 clubs have been com¬≠plet¬≠ed in the Amer¬≠i¬≠c¬≠as and 147 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 25 of those 56 clubs in the Amer¬≠i¬≠c¬≠as and 26 of 147 clubs glob¬≠al¬≠ly, and more will prob¬≠a¬≠bly be report¬≠ed in the next few days. Thank you for grow¬≠ing Kiwanis!

It has been my great hon¬≠or to serve as pres¬≠i¬≠dent of the Eye of the Tiger eKi¬≠wa¬≠nis this year and to have the oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ty to serve with you.  As part of my farewell mes¬≠sage, I quote from the song ‚ÄúFor Good‚ÄĚ from the musi¬≠cal Wicked:

‚ÄúI‚Äôve heard it said/That peo¬≠ple come into our lives/For a reason/Bringing some¬≠thing we must learn/And we are led to those/Who help us most to grow if we let them/And we help them in return‚Ķ.I know I‚Äôm who I am today/Because I knew you.‚ÄĚ

And final¬≠ly, if you did not get to see the video at the end of the meet¬≠ing on Sep¬≠tem¬≠ber 24 (now a two-year tra¬≠di¬≠tion, thanks to Past Pres¬≠i¬≠dent Gary Levine), here is the URL:   Even if you did watch it, watch it again‚Ķand nev¬≠er give up. 

Lead on with Pres¬≠i¬≠dent Bob. Let‚Äôs grow!

Yours in Service,

Pres¬≠i¬≠dent Barb
