    Distinguished Past Governor, Georgia District

  • voilá, we’re a Model Club

    By Mike Farrall, multi-division coordinator, Missouri-Arkansas

    My club, the Little Dixie-Columbia club, pledged to become a Model Club four years ago. At the time we had 31 members, yielding a pledge of US$23,250.

    If a picture is worth 1,000 words, one look at Judy Kramer’s photos from a trip to Guinea Conakry in 2012 tells a beautiful story—a story as much about the photographer as it is about the subject. First, about the photographer. Judy is a passionate international volunteer devoted to serving children and giving back to her community. Ten years ago she joined the Kiwanis Club of Palo Alto, California, and unknowingly set the backdrop to combine all of her passions into one project.

    It came into focus in 2011 when her club learned about The Eliminate Project. In May of 2011, Judy made a personal decision to financially support the campaign when she was approached to become a Major Gift ...
