RICHLAND KIWANIS FOUNDATION
2014-2015 RICHLAND KIWANIS FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT
As our club's 70th anniversary approaches, I can’t help but feel a great deal of pride in Richland Kiwanis and a sense of gratitude for the many contributions our club has made to our community since its inception.
I am honored to be part of such an organization. Sometimes it is easy to take for granted our colleagues and the special friendships we
have made as club members, and even the many projects we have completed. The first seventy years has been filled with programs, projects, successes and challenges, but most of all a dedication and commitment by its members to make our community a better
place to live. As we turn the page and begin the next chapter of the Richland Kiwanis club, let us always remember that our contributions are important, do make a difference, and are deserving of our sacrifices, efforts and resources. I can only imagine what the next seventy years will bring. Lonna Malone President
