Kiwanis One Day – Part 1
Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service. Starting in the 2016–17 administrative year, Kiwanis One Day will be held on the fourth Saturday of October. In 2016, Kiwanis One Day will be observed on October 22.
The Kiwanis International board decided to move the annual Kiwanis One Day observance to October to align with future sponsorship opportunities.
Clubs that held a Kiwanis One Day event in April 2016 are not required to hold a second event this year. Clubs seeking ideas for the October observance could consider participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF as a Kiwanis-Key Club event. Clubs that wish to participate in the Legacy of Play contest, held with partner Landscape Structures Inc. can start planning their submission to win US$25,000 worth of playground equipment available in that contest.
Kiwanis One Day is a great opportunity to bring together the Kiwanis family of clubs to focus on local community service. It’s an example of our belief that kids need Kiwanis–kids in the community need Kiwanis to provide programs and services no longer available because of school and municipal budget constraints, and kids who want to be in youth clubs need Kiwanis club members as mentors to help them thrive, prosper and grow.
