With the onset of fall and the turning of the leaves, we begin the start of a new Kiwanis calendar year. On October 1, 2017, Jim Rochford will become President of Kiwanis International, and I will have the good fortune of starting my year as the Governor of the Minnesota-Dakotas District.

I would like to thank my immediate predecessor, Peter Larson of the Moorhead Club, for his service as Governor during the 2016-2017 year. Peter has a passion for our organization and over the course of his term, he has lived out the motto that “Kids Need Kiwanis.” I know he will continue to support our mission and will be a great help to me in the coming months. Please join me in thanking Peter...

We have quite the challenge ahead of us this year with Governor Dan’s proposed new Clubs to be opened. I cannot do it alone. I will need the help from every Lt. Governor and their team as well as the Club Presidents and members.

Division 4 is working a 3-2-1 Club in Sturgis, and Cindy and her team are working faithfully on opening...
