They came. They served. And they went—but not without leaving an indelible mark on the community.
Almost 350 CKI members and administrators representing 206 clubs celebrated Circle K International at CKIx—the ultimate six-day experience that combines the best of the CKI convention and Large Scale Service Project—in Nashville, Tennessee, June 17–22. Check out these highlights:
● Activities kicked off with service projects at 21 locations including the Nashville Zoo, Boys and Girls Club, Soles4Souls and Cheekwood Botanical Garden. In three days, CKI members completed more than 3,800 service hours. That’s nearly 14 hours per member!
● In the “Amazing Service” workshop, nine members and two administrators were given US$200 and one day to create a service project—from brainstorming to completion. They decided to donate snacks and “craft bags” of coloring books, stickers and crayons to children in the hospital or staying at Ronald McDonald House.
● Attendees also raised more than US$1,000 for The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus during CKIx.
● Convention delegates elected Kathy Le of the Western Canada District as the 2014–15 Circle K International president.
