This Kiwanis year has gotten off to a running start. I have scheduled all of my official club visits and most of my Board of Director visits. In fact, I have already completed seven official club visits and five official board visits, and I have also attended three of your club’s major fundraising/service events.

Since this is the month of November and Thanksgiving is approaching, I’d like to give thanks to all of our clubs for the wonderful service you have provided to your communities. On Saturday, November 17, we will be participating in the Safeway Feed the Need Food Drive, working with Second Harvest Food Bank in soliciting shoppers at our local Safeway stores to buy bags of groceries that will be going to the food bank. I encourage all of you to volunteer in this very important service project. Rosie Jimenez is our District Coordinator; please contact her if you have any questions. I wish all Kiwanians, their friends, and their families a happy Thanksgiving.

When I was asked to become your 2018-2019 Division 34 Lt. Governor, ten past Lt. Governors told me that being Lt. Governor was the best Kiwanis year of their lives. Knowing the love that I feel for my Palo Alto club, for its extraordinary members and the extraordinary things that they do in our Palo Alto community, they assured me that as the division’s Lt. Governor I would grow to love each of the 15 other unique clubs, each with their extraordinary members and their extraordinary service to their communities. Over the past 13 months I am experiencing the reality of their testimonies and assurances. Governor Rocci Barsotti’s motto “Heart of a Hero” is so applicable to all of you Division 34 Kiwanians and underpins my feelings towards you that I have been expressing in my official club visits.

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:

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.
