In these troubled times, people are hurting. Individuals and families, who only months ago felt like they were doing okay…today hang on by threads.  Those who were already at risk face even greater hardships, harder choices.

For more than 90 years, Kiwanis has been helping children and supporting communities. Now, more than ever, Kiwanis believes it is not the time to hunker down or retreat from responsibility and compassion. Now is the time to lead, to offer people an opportunity to help others and we invite and encourage people to join us, to be part of a global service organization where one person – YOU – can make a difference.

Kiwanis has numerous opportunities for people to get involved, and provides numerous benefits to members – friendship, fellowship, business networking – but mostly the service Kiwanis members provide to children and communities. Communities just like Morgan County.

In Kiwanis, we are unified in our belief that children and their communities benefit from the efforts of a dedicated group of caring and hands-on volunteers. Please join the new Kiwanis Club of Morgan as we work to change the world for the better, one child and one community at a time. We need your hands and your hearts to help those who cannot always help themselves. The more hands, the more children and communities we can help.

If this describes you . . . please contact Kiwanis member and new club builder, Bill Mullins (Utah-Idaho District) at (435) 830-7816 or WillamMullins@live.com. Our initial weeks of recruiting have proven to be quite positive, new members signing up and at least 40 prospects. We need 25 members to form the club officially and will be holding a pre-organizational meeting in June. Call or stay tuned for more details. Please visit www.uikiwanis.org for more information about the Utah-Idaho District and www.kiwanis.org internationally.
