Kiwanis Clubs in Seward, Nebraska

Here is the Kiwanis Club of Seward’s booth at the Seward Spring Show which wound-up this evening. Marv Taylor and Ralph Hansen are shown here “manning” the booth. This venue has been very productive for selling  Kiwanis flag poles in past years as well as recruiting new members. Our Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this  year while Kiwanis International has its 100th anniversary. We are pleased  that we also have  the much  younger  “Helping Hands Club” here in the community. They meet in the evenings which accommodates those who are unable to get to our Monday noon meetings. And, they are to be congratulated for sponsoring a K-Kids Club at St John’s Elementary School here.
Their Charter Night was highlighted by the appearance of Jane Erickson, Vice-President of Kiwanis International. It is anticipated that she will advance to the International President position in the fall of 2016. Kiwanis International has Clubs in 80 Nations throughout the World with over 600,000 members, many of whom are Youth members. Erickson is shown here visiting with Marvin “PeeWee” Schulz, a long time Club member and Officer. She has been a very dynamic voice for Kiwanis and the mission of improving the lives of children of the world: “One Child at a Time”.
