      To all:

      I just returned home this evening and am thrilled to inform any of you that have not heard about this over the weekend, that on Saturday at the Kiwanis International board meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana the name of our district was officially approved and changed. We are now the New England and Bermuda District of Kiwanis!!!! Congratulations everyone in the District. We now know officially what we have always known, that Bermuda is indeed part of our family.

      Stephen T. Hill, CPA
      International Trustee
