Changing the world
The holidays are a special time for our family.
We have many traditions just like so many other families around the globe.
Christiana makes Vanillekipferl, which is my favorite Christmas cookie. Our family also gets together to exchange gifts and celebrate the coming of the Christkindl.
While much fuss is made about the greatest gadgets and gifts this time of year, the first Object of Kiwanis reminds us about the importance of giving primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life. It has been a tenet of our organization since 1924.
Kiwanians serve year round, but now is an excellent time to extend your Kiwanis impact by organizing an extra service project for your club. Invite a friend or family member to join you. You’ll spend quality time with someone close to you while making a difference in your community.
Here’s a quote I love -- “many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world.” That is what Kiwanis is doing. Club by club, charity by charity, we are changing the world.
From our family to yours, happy holidays.
