As I travel across the huge state and visit our Kiwanis Clubs I am truly inspired with all the GREAT work our clubs do!

In the spirit of service and community, let’s share the iconic STAR WARS sentiment to our Clubs.

May the Force be with Kiwanis
As we serve with hearts so true,
In every act of kindness
Our impact grows anew.
May the Force be with Kiwanis
In our mission, bold and bright,
To build a world of difference,
Shining with a light.
May The Force be with Kiwanis
As we gather strong and wise,
To uplift the children’s future
Reaching for those Montana Skies.
May the Force be with Kiwanis
Through every challenge we face,
With the FORCE as our ally
We’ll make the world a better place!

Just as the FORCE in STAR WARS empowers individuals to do great things, may it also empower our Kiwanians to continue their great work, making a positive difference in the lives of children and our communities.

May is Kiwanis Membership Month and as of this week, we have only added 1 new member! Congratulations to the Bitterroot-Hamilton Club and their new member Bill Bennett.

Hamilton is on a roll and this is their 15th new member this year.

On April 23rd, I held a zoom call, a first for me, with 4 Montana Clubs with the help of Vicki Hermanson of Kiwanis International. We explored ways to help them grow their membership and shared ideas on what’s available through KI. It was also an opportunity to let them know they are not alone. I am planning on expanding this idea in June. I’ll have more info as I set this plan in motion.

Have a great Memorial Weekend!
