GTPD Bike Rodeo

On May 3rd, 2014, the Kiwanis Club of Gloucester Twp/Blackwood participated in the Gloucester Twp. Bike Rodeo. The Bike Rodeo is an activity for the children. The Bike Police in conjunction with the Community Relations Unit, set up a course and ride through the course with the bike officers. They also hand out literature, they check the fit of bike helmets and give out new helmets when necessary, and there is a representative from Peddlers bike store to show the kids how to check their bike for safety. This is our second year participating in the bike rodeo. Our handout this year where four inch long spoke reflectors in five colors. They seem to have been a hit with the kids. Blue was their favorite color. Shown in the picture is Club Secretary Patricia Price and Officer Jenn McLaughlin.


2012 International Convention Update

This year Kiwanis International Convention was in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The food was great, the hospitality was great, and the weather was HUMID.  Nonetheless, 2012 convention was a great experience.  There were tons of great workshops and social events that reminded me why it is so awesome to be a Kiwanian. 


The Touhy's, the real life family from the movie, "The Blind Side" were the keynote speakers for opening ceremonies.  They spoke of how giving just one person a chance, you can change a life.  The Touhy's were comical but let the Kiwanis family audience know that our work is not in vain.

In addition to the workshops and service projects that were going on at the convention, came the highly anticipated House of Delegates in which Kiwanians would be voting on multiple proposals, including the proposed dues increas, and electing a new International Vice President and new Trustees.   The dues proposal was sent back to the board for review and will most likely be brought back up next year.  Dr. John Button out of the Eastern Canada- Carribean district.


Next year's international convention is in Vancouver.  Check out the 2013 Convention website http://sites.kiwanis.org/Kiwanis/en/vancouver-convention/home.aspx.
