Batavia Club Celebrates 85 Years of Service

Batavia, chartered in February 1923, held a dinner April 24, 2008, to celebrate 85 years of service. Gov. Donald Herring helped in the festivities as he and First Lady Marlene helped to induct two new members and then awarded two Distinguished Kiwanian Awards.

Immediate Past Lt. Gov. Ann Holevinski presented Batavia with their 2006-07 Distinguished Club Award. The evening also included the presentation of a $500 check from the Batavia Kiwanis Club to Kamp Kiwanis.

Many clubs were in attendance to help with the celebration. Past President Linda Thompson of Genesee Division's newest club, LeRoy Pavilion Stafford, was impressed. President Pat Crowley of the Mount Morris Club commented that the Batavia Club has always been there to support his club. The first Kiwanis Club in New York, the Rochester Club, was well represented. PG Jack Tetamore of the Rochester Club presented an interclub challenge to Batavia.

In attendance, also, were representatives of many of the agencies and organizations the Batavia Club has partnered with over the years.
