    • Ben Pohl's  presentation to our club was a great reminder for all of us. We know texting and driving is dangerous but there are other distractions as well. Ben’s personal story had a big impact on our members and I’m sure it resulted in some altered driving behaviors. He’s an engaging speaker with a powerful story that is a good one for everyone, young and older, to hear.

Every club has its own culture.  One of our "unique" traits is our White Elephant Raffle.  We do it at the end of each meeting as a way of having folks "donate" to our administrative budget.  Participants receive a raffle ticket and the winner claims the current gift and then is required to bring one for the next meeting. These funds help support meals for guest speakers, sunshine gifts and cards, and a variety of other non-service related items.  

A few weeks ago our acting president Carole Webber  was the person designated to bring the next item.  She asks us about why it was called a while elephant.  We explained that the term...

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Lombard took turns "manning" a table at the 2017 Healthy Lombard Foundations February Fitness Fair.  At the table, visitors could try their luck finding The Key To Good Health - ( they had to find the correct key to open a chest filled with small bottles of water) as well as learn a little about the clubs new Mission and Vision statements.  This was an appropriate event for members since Healthy Lombard originated with members from the Lombard Club.
