Kiwanis members went to Las Vegas this last week to the International Convention. Tables were decorated with chips, fake cash and cards. Each member received beads or other glamourous wear. It was just as though we were all high rollers.

Megan Stevenson did a Vegas Power Point to let us know more about detail,s convention amendments and elections.
The Philippines currently have the most clubs. The Convention Theme was "Our Members are Super Heroes" to change other's lives. $155,915 was raised for the Eliminate Project during the 3-day convention. This will be matched by 3 anonymous families. 25 countries have been helped to date.
Megan learned about presidential training. The importance is to focus on vision and value. Mega is so interested in having us look at what our community needs are.
Wendy learned about Young Children Priority One. She learned about the importance of child's brain, hunger issue and reading.

She talked about a Penguin Project involving peer mentors with those with special needs to perform plays.

Next year the International Convention will be held at Disney.
