Greetings, Fellow Tigers,
We are almost to September, the last month of the Kiwanis year. And what a year it has been, with a global pandemic, racial tensions, shaky economies, and extreme weather conditions.
Still, you, the Eye of the Tiger eKiwanis members, continue with your strong leadership. We currently have 73 awesome members, an increase of 25 for this year. We are #2 out of 452 clubs in the California-Nevada-Hawaii in the number of members added. Our growth enables us to develop, encourage, and support each other in the culture of growth. And we are still growing, thanks to you!
The number of new club openings is a moving and increasing total, again thanks to you, as you find creative ways to open clubs in this unpredictable time. According to the Kiwanis International 2019–20 Membership Metrics (current as of July 30), 41 clubs have been completed in the Americas and 109 clubs globally. The new club opening forms indicate that members of the Eye of the Tiger eKiwanis opened 24 of those 41 clubs in the Americas and 25 of 109 clubs globally. Thank you for growing Kiwanis!
As of today, we have 32 more days in the 2019–2020 Kiwanis year. So, there is still time to make calls, send texts and messages, respond to every social media “like” of Kiwanis, meet in person or virtually, and add more members and clubs to serve children. In the words of Winston Churchill, “This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure.” In the words of Gandhi, “The future depends on what you do today.” And as our own Allen Yergovich says, “It’s time to get quacking.”
Lead on. Let’s grow!
President Barb Thompson
