Kiwanis Comes To Vancouver

For five days Vancouver will be blessed by the good vibes radiating from the Kiwanis International and Circle K International Conventions. The participants may not be blockbuster actors or the world's most exciting rock stars, but the convention boasts its own share of attractive features and certainly stands for enough to justify a visit.

They don’t drive around in small cars or wear fezzes. So it won’t be quite as easy to identify the members in town for the Kiwanis International and Circle K International conventions Wednesday through Sunday. However, the good vibes the 4,000-plus conventioneers bring to town won’t be missed.

Among the activities the worldwide service organization, founded in 1915 and headquartered in Indianapolis, will be involved in locally are two playground builds at local area schools and a walk to benefit the latest international campaign to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.

There will also be a Saturday afternoon presentation of the Kiwanis International World Service Medal to well-known music education advocate Sarah McLachlan.
