Kiwanis Education Minute:

The World Health Organization has announced that Cameroon has eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus. Since 1999 UNICEF and other partners, including Kiwanis have helped 29 countries achieve victories over the disease. Kiwanis International is raising $110 million US dollars to eliminate this disease in 30 other countries.

Something to consider:

From”Live and Learn and Pass it on” from someone aged 48. “I’ve learned that if you want to know who the boss in a family is, just check to see who holds the TV remote control.”
