Mid-Year Conference Concludes

The 2017 Mid-Year Conference took place Feb. 10-12 at the Villa Roma Conference Center in Callicoon.

It was a weekend of learning and celebration, as honors were announced for the work done during the 2015-16 Kiwanis Year, and those at the conference attended many forums and workshops to give them information to take to their home clubs.

Featured at the event was Kiwanis International President-Elect Jim Rochford. In addition to speaking at the district board meeting on Friday and the banquet Saturday evening, Rochford conducted three forums to overflow crowds. Rochford, who has played a role in opening 150 Kiwanis clubs over the years, provided information on opening new clubs, recruiting and retaining members.

Lists of honored lieutenant governors, distinguished clubs, and many pictures from the weekend's events are available, as is a list of club acheivement award winners.

District Secretary Rich Hall was one of many who participated in Friday's Pajama Party. The event was designed to have fun, but also collect donations of bedding items for Kamp Kiwanis. Hall is with the accumulated donations.
