Thank you to everyone who updated us about their club’s Kiwanis One Day projects! Kiwanis International received photo and project updates from more than 70 clubs this year via firstname.lastname@example.org and the official Kiwanis Facebook page.
We don’t have enough space to list them all, but here are a few ways Kiwanians served their communities on Kiwanis One Day:
Kiwanians in Newcastle, Australia, hosted their own “Amazing Race” to benefit Lifeline, a crisis counseling service, and the Vera Deacon Regional History Fund. Participating teams with names like the Zombies and the Where’s Wallys arrived in costume to search for clues in the charity scavenger hunt.
Members of the La Sultana del Valle Kiwanis Club in Colombia spread their spirit to hospitalized children with a celebration. The children were entertained by games, balloon animals and a visit from a clown.
Division 7 of the New Zealand-South Pacific District organized an open recreation day at the beach in Temae Moorea, Tahiti. Families participated in free sports and boating activities and learned how to eat and live healthy.
