Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
Donna Cedervall is leaving the Kiwanis Club of Los Altos and moving to Washington State on March 7, 2019. Donna’s most significant and impactful Kiwanis leadership roles include being President of the Kiwanis Club of Los Altos and Division 34 Lt. Governor. Perhaps Donna’s greatest impact on Kiwanis is the result of her personally mentoring and developing many, many Kiwanis leaders. For me Donna participated in the selection of me to become a Lt. Governor, lead the case for approval of my Lt. Governor’s budget, contributed to making my Lt. Governor installation a great success, served as my Division 34 membership committee chair which is off to a great start this year, and most importantly, personally mentoring me to become a good Lt. Governor. Donna, I am going to greatly miss your friendship and counsel. I wish you the best and hope that you will visit us often.
Planning for the Region 17 Training Conference 2019 (RTC) day is coming together very well. Both of our Governor-elect candidates have agreed to come and take part in the program. So has Laird Smith from the Auburn area who is a past LTG and a CLE trainer and a master at recruiting new members. The current Sunset Division Circle K LTG is also on board. So, all of our first-choice presenters will be there and I'm sure our members will enjoy and benefit from the day. The RTC will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Los Altos United Methodist Church located at 655 Magdalena Ave, Los Altos, CA 94024. A flyer has been sent to all Division 34 clubs.
On Thursday, February 21, 2019 I had the distinct pleasure of attending the South San Francisco Chamber of Commerce 2019 Recognition & Business Awards Dinner. At this prestigious event the Kiwanis Club of South San Francisco was presented with the Community Involvement Award for their long-term community service impact on the South San Francisco community. It is indeed a tremendous honor to get such a direct feedback from the community that you have been serving for decades! Congratulations to all of your HEART OF A HERO 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.
