Fellow Members of Indy Metro Division Clubs & Service Leadership Programs: On behalf of my Key Club and CKI lieutenant governor counterparts, I hope you are planning to join us for our online Division Council Meeting this coming Wednesday, October 7th, from 5:30-6:30 pm. ALL KIWANIS CLUB, CKI and KEY CLUB MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE!
Since we will be celebrating on James Whitcomb Riley’s 171st birthday, the primary goal for this virtual GoToMeeting gathering will be to celebrate all things Riley! Our Indiana District has been supporting Riley Hospital for Children for 101 years, starting five years before they even opened their doors. Amber Miller, Associations and Radiothon Coordinator, Riley Children’s Foundation, and Susan Schwartz, Program Manager-Volunteer Resources with Riley Hoppital for Children at IU Health, will be joining us to provide an overview regarding the myriad of ways Kiwanis has supported their needs through the years.
We are also going to be calling on a representative from each of our eight Kiwanis clubs, sharing quick updates and future plans. Of course, we also want to learn what’s going on with Key Clubs and CKI Clubs in our area…and will definitely celebrate the brand-new Park Tudor Key Club, which our Broad Ripple Kiwanis Club has offered to sponsor!
Last, but certainly not least, it is high time you all kick me to the curb…so Governor Martyn Furnish will be presiding over the installation of our new Indy Metro Division Lieutenant Governor, Tina Siddle! For those of you who wish to contact her in the future, she may be reached at Tsiddle3@yahoo.com or (317) 563-6904. Tina is a second-generation Kiwanian, and I know that her parents, Ted and Elsie Siddle, and members of her North Indianapolis Club are mighty proud of her!
Please join the meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.

We have organized this Division Council Meeting to be fun and informative. Frankly, now that most of our members are accustomed to zooming around, I’m hoping we can celebrate “All Things Riley” every October near JWR’s birthday!
In closing, thanks to all Indy Metro Division members for allowing me to zoom onto so many of your club meeting calls, as well as letting me take part in your service projects, fundraising events and social gatherings. I’m so proud of how our club leaders have stayed in touch with all members, despite these troubling times…and know the officers who just took over last week will be counting on every member to help them navigate the way forward and seek new ways to meet the needs of kids and our community. And so long as you promise not to invoice me for membership dues, I plan on zooming around when time permits and stay in touch with so many fast friends I have made this past year!
Please make every effort to join us for this special hour of Kiwanis fellowship this coming Wednesday evening!
Brad B. Boyd
2019-20 Indy Metro Division Lieutenant Governor
