You never know who you’ll run into
This cute video shows people comming together around the world in the spirit of dance! Have to watch!
So today I was at work (I work at an opthamologist’s office) doing my usual thing; working up patients, managing the fields test and autorefractor, nothing out of the ordinary. I was getting the history of this one lady when I noticed she had a Kiwanis shirt on! Turns out she had volunteered at a local 5k last year that was run by a local Kiwanis group. Just goes to show you’re never very far from a Kiwanian!
Surfers for Autism
Map of all of the Key Club Districts within the United States.
I came across this while staying in Frisco, NC while on vacation. This program allows children and families affected by autism to come out and release their stress and have fun all while learning how to surf!
The History Behind Me
So apparently an entire CKI International Convention was in my home town last year and I was still completely oblivious to the world of Kiwanis. How ironic!
Believe it or not until this past year I was completely oblivious to the Kiwanis Family. I’d never heard of Kiwanis, seen Kiwanis, or even knew what Kiwanis was. I was never a Kiwanis Kid or a Builders Club member. I just moved to Florida recently, and it was through my new high school that I was introduced to the world that is Key Club. I went from a member to a vice president to a Lieutenant Governor in a matter of months. Even after I was elected (a last minute decision at a Spring Zone Rally) I didn’t even know how extensive the Kiwanis Family is.
Looking back on it now I’m shocked on how I didn’t see Kiwanis before; their symbol is everywhere. Why just yesterday morning I saw a trash truck in Frisco, NC with the Kiwanis logo that said “Thank you for keeping our streets clean.” Just goes to show no matter how alone you are, the Kiwanis Family is always there.
