Kiwanis Divisions 21 & 22 held their Council meeting this morning in Seward at the "Olde Glory" Theatre. While I was very active in Kiwanis some years ago, my activity recently has been confined to our local club. It was interesting to set in on this meeting since it was held here in town. Former Nebraska-Iowa District Kiwanis Governor Gus Dornbusch spoke on the ELIMINATE program; Gary Muckel, incoming President of the Lincoln Center Club, talked about a Community  Analysis he had led recently. Both of those fellows are former SCS/NRCS employees that I knew in my days with the USDA Conservation Agency. The Kiwanis mission of "Improving the World, One Child at a Time" relates to the mission of the Conservation Agency and attracts many employees and retirees. The picture is a "Changing of the Guard" with the two on the right being the current Lt. Governors of Division 21 &22 and the two on the left being the incoming Lt. Governors for those Divisions. The Kiwanis year begins October 1, but this was the last Council Meeting prior to that date. Our Kiwanis Club of Seward is one of the outstanding clubs in the entire District with 101 members and a room full every Monday noon for our meetings. We have many local projects underway and have a commendable record for participation in International projects. A bus has already been scheduled to take people from our area to the Kiwanis International Headquarters in Indianapolis, IN, next June for our 100th Anniversary. It will also be the Seward Club's 50th Anniversary.
