Welcome to the Governor's Newsletter

Hello Kiwanis Family:

I am honored to be sharing with you the first edition of the “Sparkle Gazette,” my monthly newsletter. In each edition, I will share information from different committee chairs and important district information. It will be sent to all club members to their email addresses listed with Kiwanis International. This newsletter is an opportunity for me to share ideas, highlight service projects and provide regular information to all the New England and Bermuda members. 

I am excited to be working with a fantastic board I affectionately call "the sparkle squad." We are all ready to have a year full of service and education. We will continue to make an impact in the communities that we serve.

When I come to visit the clubs in our district, I will have my Governors pins with me. The pins are $20 each and the funds from both the pin sales and the first daughters auction at conferences will be split among the following four groups (which are my preferred charities this Kiwanis year):

-HAWC- Healing Abuse Working for change www.Hawcdv.org

-Children's Friend & Family Services www.jri.org (my Mental Health Awareness cause)

-Kiwanis International Children's Fund

-Kiwanis Foundation of New England 

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in North Conway NH in November for Fall Conference. This will be an event full of education, service, and fellowship. Don't forget we will be next door to the outlets, so plenty of shopping! For more information and to register, go to newenglandkiwanis.org.

As we continue to give to our communities and our fellow Kiwanis members remember to always lead with a "Kiwanis Heart."

Governor Gayla

Why are logos important? Logos are an organization’s identity. The logo, in one small image, conveys the dynamics of a brand and when used well, breeds the most important thing… Familiarity and memorability.

The best logos are simple, versatile, and timeless. The Kiwanis logo is no different. As we work together to promote our clubs, we also work to promote Kiwanis as an organization. And as we promote the overall organization, that logo provides our individual clubs with the benefits of a brand that is more than 100 years old. 

How many times do you drive into a town and notice the signs on the side of the road promoting the charitable entities in that town? The K has become, over generations, a symbol of service. The more we can use it, the more we identify with our past and the more we grow towards the future.

Using the logo allows us to extend the Kiwanis brand. As you continue to do the incredible charitable efforts in your community, whenever possible, include the logo. That means in your newspaper ads, flyers, mailers and most importantly in your social media. The more you use it, the more we can solidify our identity of service.

Yours in Kiwanis
