The 2016-17 Kiwanis Year begins Oct. 1, with new leadership at the district, division and club level ready to take on the challenge of the new year.
Gov. Stephen Sirgiovanni and his board, pictured above, began preparing last spring for their new leadership roles. The picture of the board and district officers was taken following their installation at the District Convention in Buffalo.
Much of the information you will need for the new year has been posted here on the web site; the new club officers will be added soon, as will information on this year's Governor's Project and the official Governor's Visits to the divisions.
Note that a new secretary, Richard Hall, is taking over that position this year. As a result, the address and phone number for the district office has changed. The new information is available at the bottom of this page and on the contacts page.
