A Message from the Lt. Governor

February 2016

All of us want to be a part of something…that feeling of being needed. Well, we have arrived!  Kiwanis is huge; in your club and community, in your state, in your Nation and Internationally.

Remember that feeling in grade school to take home a bag full of Valentine Cards from your classmates, “Be Mine”, “You are my Valentine”? We kept them until the next Holiday to remind us that we are loved.  We are part of something big (a classroom of kids who love us).The journey of “fitting in” and returning kind gestures begins and soon we are winning badges and selling Girl Scout cookies. Thank you so much to the clubmembers who are so active with K Kids, Builders Club, Key Club and Circle K, you are there helping them to learn the comradery and a desire to give.

Okay, all of Division 34, remember to take care of yourselves during February, the month of love. You are a very big part of huge projects for babies, children and young adults.  Without your love, generosity and determination, some of these children could be missing something they need to be adults with the same type character.

If you Plant a Seed, Childrens’ book by Kadir Nelson.  The seed of kindness bears sweeter fruit…

Donna Cedervall, Lt Governor, Division 34   

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2016
YEAR OF THE MONKEY.

Celebrating a new working year and praying for good "harvests".  According to China's traditional solar calendar, which dictates the lunar calendar, the first Chinese "month" is called 'start of Spring'. The farming cycle is set to start sometime after this, but it really depends on the location in China. The ground doesn't thaw in some places until March.
During the Spring Festival, Chinese traditionally celebrate the start of a new year of farm work, and wish for a good harvest. This has now evolved to celebrating the start of a new business year and wishing for profits and success in various vocations.
There are also many legends about Chinese New Year, which attempt to provide an origin for several Chinese New Year practices. 

 

 

 

MEMBERSHIP GROWTH

At each DCM we are celebrating new members.  You just need to bring a copy of the member application form for your club, which has been through the Board process and is actually accepted. Each club with that information will be able to draw a prize, good for fund raiser raffle gifts. 

Please look for a donation from your club of $25-$50 and bring to the DCM.(there are still clubs who haven’t brought that donation).  Be wise and thrifty and get that prize DONATED. When you get a new member, you will draw from the pool and, thus, get a donation to replace yours. At the October DCM, three clubs were honored for a total of four new members: De Anza with one, San Francisco, also with one and Woodside Terrace with two.  Congratulations for a great job!
