Ralph Hansen provided the program at Kiwanis this noon by reporting on the recent Nebraska-Iowa District Mid-Year Conference held at the Northeast Community College in Norfolk, NE. There were 290 registered for the event in District Governor Steve McNally’s home town including our local club President Wess Robotham, Secretary Ken Block and Ralph. The current Kiwanis goals were discussed including: membership, succession planning, governance, programs, etc., along with the International project to eliminate prenatal tetanus which causes the death of 25 babies every day. Kiwanis International has joined with UNICEF in this worldwide 3.5 million dollar project with 2.2 already raised. Marv Taylor of our Club was recognized for his member recruitment success. These projects fit into the Kiwanis mission of Serving the Children of the World. This year is the 100th anniversary of the founding of Kiwanis in Detroit and the 50th year of our Seward Kiwanis Club. The recent Parade of Flags project of our club will be discussed this week on Pure Nebraska TV with Jon Vanderford.
