There are three important KI and Cal-Nev-Ha events coming up in 2019.
First on the calendar is our Cal-Nev-Ha Mid-Year Convention on March 2 in Santa Rosa. It will be held at the Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa, and the early registration cost is $60.00. There will be a lot of valuable seminars given, and this is an excellent opportunity to get some training and meet your fellow Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanians. There will be a Rose Float breakfast, an Inter-club luncheon, and a Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation dinner. I encourage all of you to attend if you can.
Second on the calendar is our International Convention. It will be at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida. The dates are June 27-29.
Finally, the Cal-Nev-Ha Convention will be held at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada, from August 15-17.
I have been making my official Lt. Governor Club and BOD visits, and I am enjoying these visits immensely! I have my final three Club visits scheduled for January and my final two BOD visits scheduled for January and February. During the Club visits I talk about the Governor’s Goals for 2018 – 2019. One of those goals is membership. Our Governor Rocci Barsotti is strongly encouraging each Club to have a formal Membership Committee that is led by a chairperson, that meets monthly and that has two tasks: getting new members and retaining existing members.
Yours in Service, John Richter, Lt. Governor 2018-2019

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.
