Our big news this month is about the Special Games.  Martha McClatchie submitted the Games as a “Signature Project” to the Division for the International competition. Division 34 submitted it to Cal-Nev-Ha, who selected it as the entry for the entire District.  We then found out that our submission was one of the finalists, and the winner would be announced at the International Convention in Las Vegas. Several D34-ers attended the award breakfast on Saturday, June 30, where the Special Games was awarded 2nd place (Silver Award) in the world! (As Brian Dahlquist observed, the 1st place winner was from Kuala Lumpur, so we were the 1st place winner in the US) Quite an honor!  Six of us went up on stage to accept the award, but we were there to represent all of you who worked so hard on the Games. It really is a project that we can be proud of; one that really changes lives in our communities. Congratulations to ALL of you! (read more and see photos on page 4)

The CalNevHa convention will be in Kona, Hawaii, from August 9 to 11 at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa, and we’re hoping for a good turnout from Division 34. Rex Upp from D12 and I are going to be hosting a Hospitality Suite at the hotel.  We will advise all of you where the suite will be once we know.  This is going to be a great convention – I look forward to seeing many of you there!

Some “housekeeping”! Almost all our Clubs have been turning in your monthly reports – thank you!!  I know this is a task, but very important, and I appreciate your efforts. Keep up the good work!

We have decided to put the potential new Club in Sunnyvale “on hold” until we can identify more people in the Community who would be willing to start a Club.  Again, if you know anyone in Sunnyvale who might be interested, please let me know.

Keep an eye on the newsletter – many clubs are having fundraisers and activities.  Please support them if you can. (Clubs – don’t forget to send Barbara your activity dates.)  As I have visited all of you this year, I have been amazed by all that you do in your communities – thank you for all your service!

 Please contact me if there is anything that your Club needs.  I'm here to help!

Special Games Awarded Silver 2019 Signature Project by Kiwanis International at the Convention in Las Vegas:

SPECIAL GAMES SIGNATURE PROJECT A WINNER!
by Martha McClatchie, Kiwanis Club of Los Altos

As many of us may already be aware, the Special Games was selected as the CalNevHa District Signature Project finalist, and at the International Convention, we were all so thrilled to be selected as the Silver (2nd place) Signature Project out of 33 worldwide Signature Projects finalists.

Although Los Altos Club got the "name" recognition, we all know who does the work (Div1234 combined) and there were many clubs represented at the International Convention Div12 and 34 to receive this prestigious award.

Special Games happens with the continued support of all the Clubs of Div12 & 34- we all know what it takes.

KEY CLUB TRAINING 2018

by Gerry Weiss, Kiwanis Club of Greater San Mateo

The Key Club Training was held at Burton Park in San Carlos on Saturday, June 23rd. Key Clubbers from Region 17 (Divisions 12E, 12S, 12W, 34N, 34S) attended that day. 

This year’s training conference proved to be a huge success. There were 61 D34N students and 39 D34S students present.  Twelve members and advisors from Division 12 and 34 clubs were in attendance as well. Members and advisors from Greater San Mateo Clubs included Gerry Weiss, John Lyle, Jonathan Lam, Deborah Orler, Tom Kassimos, and Pamela Vorsatz.

KCTC is an annual event for new Club Officers to gain necessary leadership skills and training for the term. At KCTC, various workshops are provided to cover all necessary skills to be a successful leader. Workshop presenters are thoroughly prepared to educate Club Officers about the respective duties of their position. There are ice breakers throughout the day, so one can get to know members of other clubs in the Region.

The Division 34N June DCM was held upon completion of officer training, carried out by Lt. Governor Kristie Poon and members of the Division Leadership Team.

Gerry Weiss, Past President and Secretary of Greater San Mateo Club, presented Kayla Tai, Past Division34N Lt. Governor (2017-2018) with a Distinguished Service Award. Kayla graciously accepted the award and thanked Gerry for this recognition. 

We would like to thank Kelvin Yang, Past Distinguished Division34N Lt. Governor (2016-2017 term) for attending that day’s KCTC. His visit was a compliment to everyone present.
