Pennsylvania District Kiwanis International
Happy Kiwanis New Year!
I am excited to lead the Pennsylvania Kiwanis District as your next District governor for our new administrative year that starts 10/1/2021!
This year expect my passion, commitment, and energy to help support your club goals and help move our District forward. I know many of our clubs are struggling, the District understands and while we are not quite out of a major pandemic, our kids still need Kiwanis. I know your clubs and members are rooted in service – so imagine if your club didn’t exist! How would the children of your community be impacted? Think about it!
We like to announce some new initiatives this year:
- Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion initiative that will be led by committee Chair Shawn Smith from the Kiwanis Club of Sheraden and his committee. They will be tasked at providing education around Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and what that means for you, your club and your communities you serve. We always strive to have our clubs reflect the communities we serve.
- Change for Change – New Governor’s project – All change or donations given to the Governor’s project will go towards the purchase of Diversity books or Early Learning material to be donated to either a community organization, school or library that will allow for diverse children’s books to be more accessible to all children. You may present any donation to me at the upcoming Regional events or electronically via venmo or paypal.
Lastly, I want you to Remember YOUR WHY – the reason you are in Kiwanis – why you joined and why are you still here. Share that with members and prospective members, it is important for them to understand.
I encourage all of you to be open to new ideas and think outside the box. Dream big! Get away from the “We have always done it that way” mentality – Inspire your members to want more for your community.
Continue to thrive in your clubs and know Together We Can accomplish anything you dream.
I look forward to seeing you at your upcoming Fall Regional meetings!
Happy NEW YEAR! Have a successful year!
Sarah Zulueta, District Governor 2021-2022
