Message from the District Governor


WELCOME TO 2013-2014!!

What will you do for children TODAY to "change the world one child at a time?" 

Here we are, launching a new Kiwanis year.  Officers officially begin their terms, some with lots of experience, some with very little.  Yet our goals are all similar:   to make a difference in the lives of children in our communities and elsewhere.   One never knows when the simplest kindness or enhancement for a child will make a huge difference in their future lives. 

So, how do we make a difference in a complex world?  We are all volunteers and we have other obligations and pursuits:  family, work, church and so much more.  Yet we are Kiwanians because we feel in our hearts that we CAN make a difference.   

Some Kiwanians try to devote time and effort on a daily basis.  Some select one day a week and set aside a time block.  Some just randomly participate in various service projects and Kiwanis pursuits.  Some do very little because they simply get lost in the busy-ness of life.  Whatever your style and preference, one of the keys to success is persistence.  Look at your own personal big picture and make a positive plan to set aside some time regularly for Kiwanis efforts for children.  Take action!!!  Results don't just happen.  Plan for success. 

Keep asking yourself, "What more can I do?"  What more can I do to help children?  Just do more.  Attending meetings, sharing food and fellowship, paying dues and giving lip service to being a member of a Kiwanis club does not a Kiwanian make.  Just do more.  Keep asking yourself, "What more can I do?"  Imagine the power and success if our nearly 5,000 members of the LMT district did something for children EVERY DAY. 

Let's all give it our best effort and let's make a real difference for the children we serve and truly change the world.   

Thank you for all you do ...... and will do during this Kiwanis year.

What if you could save a baby's life?

With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
