Kiwanis EducationThe Elevator Speech
An elevator speech is also known as a "30-second commercial." It is a clear, short message about Kiwanis and your club, only 30 seconds or less. The idea is that, if you find yourself sharing an elevator with a potential employer, you might only have half a minute to connect. Who you are, what you're looking for, and why they might want to join must all be stressed in your elevator speech.
Kids need people to look out for them. Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Local clubs look out for our communities, and the international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as disease and poverty. We are generous with our time. We are creative with our ideas. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way.
Meals On Wheels route this week was covered by Harris. Our route currently delivers to 16 people every Wednesday with 14 of them getting two meals (Wednesday and Thursday) and one getting only one for Wednesday and one getting only one for Thursday. Both Jim and Harris are dealing with medical issues that mean they may not always be available to cover the route. Potential member Mary said she would be interested in doing it if she can get a second person to ride along with her. Please let President Harris know if you can do this.
President Harris announced that incoming Lt Governor Denny wants all the division's clubs to get together and do a Kids Day event for Kiwanis One Day. Club members were of the opinion that it is too big a project to do in so little time. We will come up with our own project for Kiwanis One Day.
President Harris reminded club members again that we need to pick a date hor our Holiday party. Lindsey volunteered to organize it. We will select a date once we have the calander for the Giving Tree dates.
