Congratulations to Romania and France-Monaco for their relentless dedication in building new clubs.
Together they opened 6 clubs with 133 members over the last 3 months! Good news as well from Italy-San Marino and Switzerland-Lichtenstein who opened new clubs in Selinunte (Sicily) and in Munot-Schaffhausen (Switzerland) with, respectively, 17 and 15 members. Tirelessly leading the way, Romania and France-Monaco (the sponsoring district of Romania) have opened the clubs of Targoviste (37 members), Bucuresti-Branesti (27 members) and Calarasi (21 members) in Romania. In France, the district team opened the clubs of Lyon (15 members), Paris-Philae (15 members) and Juigné-Sablé-Solesme (18 members).
Last but not least, thanks to the strong ties that exist between France and Morocco, a new club is going to open in Tiflet, Morocco. Congratulations to the team and the sponsoring club of Casablanca! Since the start of the Kiwanis year, the European region has opened 13 new clubs with 150 members. In addition, more than 150 new Kiwanians have joined existing clubs, increasing the European Kiwanis family by some 300 members. “This is very good news as that means over 600 additional hands to help improving the lives of children in our region. Keep up the good work!”, said Sjoerd Timmermans, 2016-2017 KI-EF President.
