Kiwanis Pledge: “I pledge to uphold the objects of Kiwanis international, to provide service to my community, to extend the opportunity of membership to all persons of goodwill, and to dedicate myself to serving the children of the world.” 

Years ago, I remember there were several companies that as they opened a new location the advertisement would read "Here we GROW again!" Now this advertisement slogan applies to the WV District. It is my pleasure to announce our family has just gotten a little bigger with the addition of a new Key Club at Keyser High School! In order not to miss anyone, let me thank everyone that has been involved in the formation of this club and say, WELL DONE! Who's next?! I know the Formula Team will be hitting the road in the next couple of weeks. Could they be the next to announce a newly formed club? The excitement is growing! Become a part of the excitement!

Mid-Year at the beautiful Lakeview Resort is just around the corner! Registrations are already coming in. Didn't get your registration forms? Contact Bernie Knott,, and he will get them right to you. This mid-Year will be something you'll not want to miss! There are lots of activities planned that everyone will enjoy. If you thought District Convention in August of last year was better than any you remember, wait until you see Mid-Year! I can't tell you everything. That would spoil the fun, but it will include lots of fun!! It all begins on Friday and will continue right through to Sunday! First Lady Sherry and I are looking forward to seeing everyone at Mid-Year or even sooner! Personally, I can't put into words how honored and pleased we are to be able to attend meetings of several of our Kiwanis Clubs, or being at club events or spending time with our Circle K and Key Club families! If your club has an event coming up, let us know. We'd love to come celebrate with you! Thank each and every one of you for all that you do!

Love it. Share it. Live it.
Governor John and first Lady Sherry
