After he officiated at the induction ceremony, Lt. Gov. Stahl said "this is a very important time for Kiwanis. Kiwanis International will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary starting January 2015 and many clubs have already celebrated over 90 years". The Macomb Kiwanis Club observed its 90th Anniversary in 2012.
Stahl said it's important that each club works on membership growth and encouraged us to set a goal and make it attainable.
New President Jason Thomas says this will be "a year of growth" for the Macomb Kiwanis Club. He thanked Tim Moss for his leadership and told him "I learned a lot from you". Jason said his goal is also membership growth and would like each member to bring in at least two new members this year. He's also talking with K-Mart regarding Shopping With Santa in December and would like board members to adopt a month for our Reading Program at Edison and Lincoln Schools. Board members would be responsible for scheduling someone to read each month and, he says, "that way we can lay out the whole year in advance".
Jason also announced that Casey Grant spoke to the Macomb Rotary Club about the School Sack Program and received a $2,000 check to help support the program.
