Public Relations Contest

Hello Fellow Kiwanis members,
We are going to change our contest this year it will be a Facebook competition. As you know every club should have and be using a Facebook page. I will be judging on the following criteria:

  • Correct logo is being used
  • At least one post monthly if not weekly
  • Engaging content (ex. photos, videos)
  • Number of likes and shares on your page.
  • Do you show what you do in the community?

Please use this link for info and material about building a great club page!

As always I am happy to help

Gayla Bartlett
Public Relations Chair

Newsletter Contest

Regular newsletters are a great way to inform and engage members. This contest is meant to recognize those clubs that do a great job! Yankiwanian Editor Karl Uzcategui will be the judge, and even offer suggestions if asked!

Member Recognition

Legion of Merit

The New England District of Kiwanis International has instituted the Legion of Merit to recognize members who have served Kiwanis for 5, 10, 15, and 20 years of service.

The program consists of a pin and a certificate. 
5 years – copper
10 years – bronze
15 years – silver
20 years – gold.  
The certificate is suitable for framing for your home or office.

The number of years does not have to be in one club, and membership does not have to be continuous. A member is considered eligible within six months of the required number of years.
