At the Open House at Kamp Kiwanis on May 14, a bench was dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and great Kiwanian, Distinguished Past Lt. Gov. Steven J. Eisman, who unexpectedly passed away last year. The funds donated to obtain this bench came from our New York District past governors. District Foundation President Sal Anelli, Past Gov. Bob Calabrese and Distinguished Past Gov. Peter Mancuso spoke during the ceremony, recounting Steve's lengthy period of invaluable service to the district and close friendship with many of us.
More pictures from the Open House are available.
The Kiwanis International Convention in Toronto, June 23-26, is fast approaching. More than 200 delegates and guests from the New York District (the second largest contingent at the event) will be traveling to the convention where delegates will elect candidates and carry on other convention business. Included this year is the candidacy of New York Distinguished Past Gov. Peter Mancuso for a seat on the International Board of Trustees.
It's not too late to make plans to attend the event, as registration will be available on site.
Those who plan on attending the District Reception must purchase tickets in advance; none will be sold at the door.
