Kiwanis International has awarded the Kiwanis Club of Massapequa a Silver award in its Signature Project Recognition Program.
The award was announced July 14 at the Kiwanis International Convention in Paris.
Massapequa was honored for its drug abuse awareness effort. All Kiwanis districts submitted entries for the recognition; Massapequa, as the New York District's nominee, was one of 11 which were selected as finalists.
Signature projects show the impact a Kiwanis club can have on a community. From playgrounds and parks to festivals and fundraisers, signature projects are the hallmarks of what Kiwanis clubs are known for in their communities.
A full list of district submissions is available.
Registration for the District Convention, Aug. 24-27, in Lake Placid is now open.
The convention and hotel registration are separate, and each can be done online.
Be aware of the deadlines. Registration fees are non-refundable after July 16. You must register for the hotel before July 24 to be part of the district block of rooms. Any registrations after that date will be on a space-available basis at the prevailing rates rather than the ones negotiated by the district.
