A Sweet Start to a New Year

September 11, 2023

At the Kiwanis Club of Forest City-London, we believe in the power of community, compassion, and connection. On September 11th, 2023, we came together in a heartwarming and inspiring way at Goodwill’s Town Hall room.

A Sweet Start to a New Year

The event began on a sweet note as we were welcomed back with a delicious cake. As the familiar faces of our fellow Kiwanians gathered around, the atmosphere buzzed with excitement and camaraderie. It was evident that this year was going to be one filled with shared experiences and meaningful connections.

One of the highlights of the evening was the heartfelt presentation by Paul Garrett, our President-Elect. Paul shared a deeply personal story that touched the hearts of everyone present. He spoke about his journey of living with a rare disease called Transverse Myelitis. Paul’s courage and openness in sharing his story gave us all a newfound perspective on life.

Transverse Myelitis is a condition that affects the spinal cord, often resulting in a range of physical challenges. Through Paul’s narrative, we gained insight into the daily struggles and triumphs that individuals with such conditions face. His story was not just eye-opening but also a reminder of the strength of the human spirit.

As we move forward into the new administrative year, we carry with us the importance of empathy, the value of community, and the strength that can be found in unity. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and are dedicated to continuing our mission of making a difference in the lives of those in our community.

We extend our gratitude to Paul Garrett and to all our members for their unwavering support. Together, as a Kiwanis family, we look forward to another year of service, friendship, and making a meaningful impact in our community.
