The "K-Family Weekend" Brings Together the Key Club & CKI Boards with Kiwanis Leadership Team
a Photo Essay by Immediate Past Governor Bob Cressy

Have you ever been on a "K-Family Weekend"? You'd never forget it, I'll tell you. Just what is a K-Family weekend anyway? Well, its definition is really the Kiwanis Family Weekend. Its purpose is to gather the current Key Club Board, the CKI Board and the new Kiwanis leadership team, especially all of the 2008-2009 Lieutenant Governors, SLP advisors and K-Family Governors. They assemble for most of three days to work and play together, to share ideas, plans and to get to know one another while coordinating their goals. more or view event photo album

Ocean Pines-Ocean City Club Recognized
by Carol Ludwig, Ex. Dir, Ocean Pines Area Chamber of Commerce

The Ocean Pines Area Chamber of Commerce is very proud to announce our annual awards, one of which is the Citizen(s) Of The Year which goes to the Kiwanis Club of Ocean Pines-Ocean City. It is a first for this Chamber to name an organization as Citizen Of The Year, but it was an obvious choice. The Kiwanis Club has volunteered and aided in many programs and improvements at local schools, and still found the time to volunteer many hours to Chamber events. Their "Child Car Seat Sticker Program" is becoming popular way beyond Worcester County and this is attributed to their endless efforts in providing these stickers, free of charge, to every person they meet.

Shown are members of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ocean Pines-Ocean City receives the Ocean Pines Area Chamber "Round of Applause" for their support of the ALS Walk, their Child Safety Seat Stickers and volunteer hours to the Chamber's booth at the Delmarva Chicken Festival. Pictured left to right are current leaders of the Kiwanis Club of Greater OP-OC: Past President Al Kastner, Current President, Ed Schaefer, First Vice President, Dan Peletier, President - Elect Corky Widerman, Carol Ludwig, Executive Director, Ocean Pines Area Chamber of Commerce, and Treasurer, Cliff Anderson.
