The vision that Kiwanis International has put out is that we are Kiwanians so that one day all children will wake up in communities that believe in the them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive. That dream may take another hundred years, but that dream is why we are all Kiwanians.”
During his remarks to the group, Mullins explained how Kiwanis Club projects bring individuals together to affect positive change in the community.
Mullins noted, “We have to give Jim Frye the credit for this. A bicycle rodeo doesn’t sound like much, but it’s turned out to be great project. There are lots of kids, lots of bicycles and lots of people helping. Everybody in this room works. We have leadership here that’s incredibly good. Although I got the award, I just go with the flow.”
