-Kiwanis Education Minute:  From our International President Tom DeJulio, “ Another way that Kiwanians display the forth Object is by educating themselves about the needs in their local and global communities” Remember the fourth Object is “We are called upon to make a commitment to develop, by precept and example, a “more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.”

Something to consider:
From “Live and Learn and Pass It On”; from someone who is 51, “I’ve learned that you can inherit wealth but never wisdom.” And from someone age 15, “I’ve learned that the little sayings you learn as a child, such as the Golden Rule, are actually important.”
