Bright lights December 2014
December days draw the sun to the Southern Hemisphere,spreading a shadow of darkness across the northern half of the globe. Yet, north, east, west—even south—the Kiwanis family brings light into the world.
They brighten lives by clothing children, feeding families,ringing bells to collect funds for the needy, caroling, parading,reading, dancing. ...
For many communities, Kiwanis brings true light. Real candlepower. The kind that’s measured in lumens. The kind that reflects in the sparkling eyes of a child in full-scale
wonderment. The kind that prompts smiles of
memories among seniors.
Join Kiwanis magazine on a tour of Kiwanis lights through Colombia, Minnesota and Sweden. The December 2014 issue also features a story about a special robot that works with special needs children; a report on how clubs can spread awareness and acceptance about autism and a visit to our 2015 Kiwanis International convention host city, Indianapolis.
