Proud to be Kiwanian 1: Once in Vienna…
I’d like to tell a story: PROUD TO BE KIWANIAN
Many years ago I was in Vienna, with my friends on our Christmas holidays. We were visiting the city centre where there was a very impressive Christmas atmosphere.
My friends looked at me saying: “oh Elio, there are two stands selling “vinbrule” (mulled wine), let’s go there!” Those stands unfortunately had the Lions and Rotary Club logos.
At that moment I was a bit disappointed, but suddenly I turned around and I saw another stand in the distance with the “K”, our Kiwanis Logo. So I convinced my friends to go there and to drink vinbrule, although I personally don’t drink alcohol.
What it is the moral of the story?
When we see our “K” anywhere in the world it makes us very proud because it means there are a KC and Kiwanian friends in that city.
Why don’t we increase this effect? While I was Governor of my district, I launched a Centennial Year Program, a service and “mkt” program to create an impact with the local service: During the District Convention I awarded each of the clubs that had put up a plaque in its territory that reminds everyone of the activities carried out by the service. Finally, what was the result? Well, the clubs have put up more than 100 plaques, creating a photo and video gallery that has been published on the District’s official website.
