Events, the announcements in orange are for the Key Club, turquoise is for Circle K, purple is for the Builders Club, pink for the K-Kids and the announcements in maroon are for the Aktion Clubs.


      Thank you!!


      Hello New England and Bermuda,

      Fall is in the air...you can just feel the temperatures getting cooler and the leaves are turning colors. It is the perfect time to be thinking about the beginning of the next administrative year in our Kiwanis Clubs. We have just what you need to assure that you have the best year possible. The agenda for the Fall Trainer is now available!

      We have an exciting Fall Trainer planned for our members. As we have shared with you, the deadline for reserving rooms at the Radisson is October 1. Please do this as quickly as possible to assure you have a room for this event. Remember to mention that you are with the New England Kiwanis group. It is always better to reserve a room if you think you will want to attend rather than to try after the deadline. With so many events happening in this area during the weekend, it may be impossible to get a room after the October 1ST deadline.

      Registration is available online. Please don't wait until the last minute as we want to plan for your arrival. We know you are going to learn so much and get to meet with other Kiwanis members to share ideas and learn how to become more effective leaders.

      Notice we have special pricing for children as they are always welcome to join us. Key Club and Circle K members will be available for babysitting so you can relax and participate in all the workshops and events.

      Join us for a great weekend. You will be so glad that you did.  We look forward to seeing you again or if you are a first timer, welcome.

      Vesta Browne
      Governor 2011-2012


      The KIWANIS PEDIATRIC TRAUMA INSTITUTE needs your helmet head for a new bike helmet safety promotion. We’re looking for pictures from Key Clubbers and Circle K members that show extreme helmet head. How does your hair look after wearing your bike helmet? Is it sticking out every which way? Are your spikes and curls flat? Does your afro have no go? Show us! Email the pictures to <plupien@...>. Make sure the pictures are able to be printed, clear and in focus, and don’t forget to include your contact information.  (By sending KPTI your pictures, you are giving us permission to use them for promotional purposes.) Please contact Patricia Lupien <plupien@...> for more information.
