Welcome 2014 KY-TN District Convention - August 7-10, 2014

     This year's District Convention will be held in one of the most scenic areas of Tennessee.  Kingsport is nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the easternmost corner of Tennessee near the borders of Kentucky and Virginia.  Our convention facility will be at the Meadow View Marriott Conference Resort & Convention Center.  We have been there before, but the facility has been renovated recently, and is a great convention hotel.  Our convention will have something for everyone.  It will provide the opportunity to renew friendships, to obtain club leadership education, and to be entertained.

     During the opening session on Friday evening, you will be enthralled by a local story teller.  Her narrative will amuse and inspire you.  On Saturday evening, we anticipate having an acting troupe that will involve the audience in solving a murder mystery as our dinner unfolds.  As always, there will be the Foundation Lunch with the opportunity to bid on silent auction items.

     The hotel has a terrific gold course that will provide an excellent venue for the golf tournament, or for a more casual and relaxed round of golf at your leisure.  The more fit among us may prefer to swim laps in the heated, indoor pool or to work out in the fully-equipped fitness center.

     Put this event on your calendar, and plan to join us in beautiful east Tennessee.  Carolyn and I look forward to seeing you there!

    
Roger


          

        

 
    

What if you could save a baby's life?

With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
