Learn – moving forward into the new era, learning to use technology, new ways to promote our club, and new ways to leverage our friendships and knowledge to further our cause.
Grow – Grow within ourselves, to be better Kiwanians – Grow our Club, new members bring new ideas and more resources – Grow our Division, our District, and Kiwanis International – one member at a time.
