At the heart of Kiwanis International lies a set of shared values that align seamlessly with the principles upon which Independence Day was founded. The ideals of independence, self-determination, and equality have been etched into the very fabric of our organization since its inception.
It is imperative to acknowledge that Kiwanis International originated in the United States of America, a nation renowned for its commitment to freedom, innovation, and progress. Our roots in this dynamic country have propelled us to become a global force for good, impacting the lives of countless children and shaping communities across the world.
No journey of significance is without its fair share of trials and tribulations. Yet, as Kiwanis Family, we have repeatedly showcased remarkable resilience in the face of adversity, displaying an unwavering dedication to our advocacy for more than a century.
The spirit of Independence Day reminds us that the path to progress is often fraught with obstacles, but it is through unwavering perseverance and unyielding determination that we surmount them. We have weathered storms, charted uncharted territories, and emerged stronger and more united. It is within the crucible of these challenges that our resilience is forged, propelling us forward with unwavering resolve.
Happy 4th of July, Kiwanis!
