June News from the Governor

Here we go again! Happy to be of service again, but sad for the reason that I am. I’m sure we are all missing Scott and his smiles. Here is a quote that I recently came across and it fits Scott perfectly. “Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received – only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage.” - Francis of Assisi Scott definitely served with a full heart, honesty, love, sacrifice and courage.

One of the best ways that we can honor Scott is to plan to attend DCON in Helena, August 11-13. This convention is joint with Western Canada and I promise you it will be informative, exciting and fun. Just a few of the highlights –

  1. Past international president Sue Petrisin will be presenting a workshop on the “why” of Kiwanis - Why do you do what you do? Why are you a member of Kiwanis? Why do we need Kiwanis? What's your why? We can easily identify the who, what, when, and where. Join us and let's talk about why.

  2. Andrew Dawson will team up with the Joy Smith Foundation from Canada and conduct a panel on human trafficking and what to watch for and how we can help.

  3. George Tavin, Governor Elect from Western Canada will present a program called “Connections

  4. Our SLP administrations, along with leaders from Canada will be holding strategy roundtables.

  5. Vicki Hermanson, KI area 4 director will be leading a Media Workshop.

That’s just the beginning – then the fun parts –

  • Boat ride anybody? Take the trip through the “Gates of the Mountains”

  • Don’t like water? Go pub crawling or golfing.

End goal is to learn and have fun! I am going to try to do a little traveling this summer to visit some clubs or participate in projects. I was privileged to attend the club boost in Billings at Zoo Montana on May 6th. It was a fun experience and always so good to be with our Kiwanians that have the same goal in mind of making the world a better place for our children. As always, my phone is always on. Do not hesitate to call or email me your questions, concerns, and/or ideas! Cherie Neudick, Governor Montana District of Kiwanis, (406) 366-2632
