The Kiwanis Club of Seward, NE celebrated its 50th Anniversary, Monday July 13, 2015. Shown here is Senator Mark Kolterman who has just completed his first legislative session in the Nebraska Unicameral. He is a local insurance agent and past President of the Kiwanis Club. Courtney Meyer, seated at Mark’s left who was MC for the event, is also a past President. To Mark’s right is Marv Taylor, co-chair of the Anniversary committee and Steve McNally, Governor of the NE-IA District. Kiwanis International is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year. The event was attended by some 200 individuals. Jack Duensing who served as co-chair along with Taylor, is the only current member, among our nearly 100, who was a Charter Member. It was a great event with several neighboring Kiwanis Clubs represented. The mission of Kiwanis is “Serving the Children of the World” by “Improving the World, One Child at a Time”. I am pleased to have been a member of the Seward Club for 23 years and was it’s Distinguished President in 1997.
