We choose an Every Day Hero - a member of our community who goes above and beyond volunteering and exemplifies the Objects of Kiwanis


Past President's Award -


This is the most prestigious award given to a Kiwanian at the local level.  This is presented to a Kiwanian who worked delegently on the majority of our projects and exemplifies the spirit of Kiwanis.  


This award is presented to a Kiwanian who serves above and beyond the qualities of a Kiwanian. 


This award is presented to a Kiwanis member who upholds the objects of Kiwanis.  They work in the background and are responsible for keeping the spirit of Kiwanis in the fore front of our purpose,


Our Secretary keeps track of everyone's attendance.  He/She goes through every meeting and marks everyone's attendance for the year.  At the end, he/she counts the number of meetings that were missed and adds up all the projects each member attends and this gives us the perfect attendance award.  I know that this does not seem possible , but there are a few of our members that are so devoted (okay - some of us theorize that we get perfect attendance because we have nothing more to do with our lives :o) to Kiwanis that they attend meetings and projects diligently.


Legion of Merit signifies the number of years by 5 year markers for service to Kiwanis.  After 25 years of service, it will be the Legion of Honor award.
