It’s our 99th Year!

On October 3, 2019 we kicked off our 99th year! We had the privilege of Hiawatha Nicely, Lieutenant Governor, joining us and inducting our new officers. We also presented our perfect attendance pins and passed the gavel through our Past Presidents hands to the new President, John Mason.

Three of our members have been a Kiwanian for over 50 years; Bert Osborne, Harry Kolendrianos, and E. Budge Kent, Jr.. We will be interviewing them later this year to learn more about them and why they love Kiwanis.
