Hello, it’s me!
Governor Dawn Ignatius!
Wow, where did October go? 

I have loved every single day that I have spent with Kiwanians all over the Rocky Mountain district. Kiwanians love kids and your good work shines everywhere I have gone! Thank you Kiwanis clubs of Wheatland, Worland, Pueblo, Trinidad, Pueblo Steel City, Windsor, Pikes Peak Club, Kiwanis Club of the Rockies, and Ute Pass-Woodland Park for your hospitality! My time with you has been a treasure trove of beautiful memories!

Please ask one person you know this month if they want to help kids….just that simple, “can you help me help kids in our community”…it will start a chat and a chat becomes a real conversation and a conversation becomes a wonder about what Kiwanians are all about! Do it…I dare you! Let me know! Could be a sweet surprise in store for new member sponsors! Let’s make November “new member month”!

Board Retreat
Your district leadership attended a short, sweet business retreat October 14-15 at Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs. This will be the site of our District Convention: August 3-6 2023. Your kids and grandkids are gonna love this place, check their website, pools, slides, kids arcade and more!!! 

Mark your calendars now so you don’t make other plans!!
Topics covered during our retreat included: creating a leadership pipeline, discussing what mid-year convention and training look like, how we can help clubs who want a satellite, and what is the best way to communicate with our membership. We welcomed guests from Key Club who let us know how we can work smarter together! Please reach out to your Lt. Governors for details on any of these topics.

And the winner is……

I love every single grand and great grandkid picture you have sent me! Look at these beautiful children from the clubs in Wheatland & Castle Rock! 

I tried, really I did, BUT I can not pick just one! They are all winners in my eyes and yours!

Grand babies/grand pups/kitties…they teach us how to love…love hard…love back!

Enjoy November! The food, the smells, and the smiles and all that Thanksgiving brings to kids and adults alike!

Drop me a note on any Thanksgiving service projects that you are working on. 

And send me a pic of those grandkids or grand dogs/cats for my note in December!

Thank you for all you do!
– Dawn
