The Kiwanis Club of Chippewa Falls was organized on April 21, 1919. Our club has produced one District Governor, Alexander Wiley (1933) and thirteen Lieutenant Governors, the first Alexander Wiley (1932) and the last G. Rex Rathbun (1988).
Thank you to all who vistited the Kiwanis Ice Cream Stand at the Northwern Wisconsin State Fair! Can't wait for next year.
The Chippewa Falls Kiwanis Club has initiated a Golden Rule Student Recognition Program that honors local students for following the age-old motto "Do unto others as you would like others do unto you".
"Kiwanis members appreciate the value of recognizing our young citizens for doing community service and displaying positive character," says Mary Jacobson, co-chair of Community/Youth Services Committee of the Kiwanis Club of Chippewa Falls. "Many students are recognized for athletic and academic achievements, but we choose to honor students who live by the Golden Rule, one of Kiwanis Constitutional objects, as integrity and character are valuable attributes for life."
Each month, two seniors, one each from Chippewa Falls Senior High School and McDonell Area Catholic Schools, are selected.
In honor of their recognition, Kiwanis Club of Chippewa Falls donates $25 to the charity of the student's choice.
Golden Rule students are nominated by the respective schools' teaches and staff, using specific criteria including, among others:
Thank you to those who came out and supported our Beer, Wine & Cheese Gala. We had a very successful event. We're looking forward to seeing you at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair on July 9-13, 2014.
As Kiwanis members we can take pride that we are making a difference in our communities, that we have already changed the world with our Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) project, and that we are changing the world once again with the Eliminate Project. I encourage you to share this positive message with current and potential members of your club.
Information about my experience and goals can be found on my campaign website (www.patrickewing.net) and on my candidate page in the Elections section of the Convention website (www.kiwanis.org/vancouver).
Thank you for all you do for your club, for your community, and for our global organization. We truly are making a difference, changing the world one child and one community at a time.
