Division 34, Cal Nev Ha, District, California Nevada Hawaii
For the remainder of my year as the Division 34 Lieutenant Governor, my focus will be on membership growth in our Division. I have formed a Membership Growth team for Division 34. We will be conducting our second meeting on Thursday February 25th at 7:30 PM. This session will be an opportunity for training on how to conduct a Community Survey. This training will be provided from one of the Cal Nev Ha trainers that Governor Gary Gray has assigned to provide to any Division in the Cal Nev Ha district. Also, we are planning a Division wide service event (COVID-19 safe) that we can use to retain current members as well as attract new members. Finally, we will be conducting a Kiwanis orientation to be geared for our newer members.
Governor Gray wants every club to develop a written membership plan that can be used by a club over many years. Thank you for your continued support
and stay safe.

DIVISION 34 CLUBS CONTINUING TO DO GOOD
• In response to schools and libraries being closed due to the COVID-19 Virus, the Bring Me a Book foundation is providing books to children who select them on-line. They are than mailed to their homes, along with on-line learning kits so that they can read on-line with their teachers. They then get to keep the books. The Kiwanis Club of De Anza, Cupertino was able to provide 55 books that were purchased from Bring Me a Book, intended to be signed by speakers at their meetings and then donated to schools before the pandemic shut them down.
• Featured in CNH Magazine was the Kiwanis Club of Palo Alto who supported the non-profit “One Dollar for Life” by providing coronavirus masks for the community. Sewing centers in Nepal and Kenya, originally used to make sanitary kits for adolescent girls, have been transformed to produce masks to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Once the travel bans are lifted, about 1,000 masks will be imported into the United Sates for distribution to San Francisco Bay Area medical staff.
• Also featured in CNH Magazine was the Kiwanis Club of San Mateo, and Division 34 North Key Club (Aragon, Hillsdale, Carlmont, Saint Ignatius, South San Francisco, Mills, Sequoia, Lowell, and El Camino High) members removed plants and debris in the Greater San Mateo Adoption Area. The area includes Coyote Point, a regional recreation area that provides a wide variety of opportunities that include picnics, swimming, bicycling, jogging, boating and more.
SPECIAL HONORS FOR SERVICE
Lt. Governor Derek Lubich presents the Morton Korengold Award to Rick Stern from the Palo Alto Club.
This prestigious award, basically the Kiwanian of the Year Award at Division 34 Level, was begun as a tribute to the late Mort Korengold, who died of heart failure while serving as President of the San Carlos Club in 1982. Each year the award is presented to a Kiwanian, selected from nominees submitted by clubs in the division, who best exemplifies what Kiwanis is all about.
Division 34 Lt. Governor Derek Lubich presenting George Kranen from the South San Francisco Club a Youth Service Award for 2019-2020 from CNH Division 34. A well-deserved honor.
