Salute to Business Hudson - Litchfield News

Hudson Kiwanis Members Continue Pease Greeters

to Serve in Hudson and Litcheld
The success of Kiwanis in local communities results from the strong and active service of thousands of
Kiwanis club members. In fact, many Kiwanians have been club members for 25 years or more. Kiwanis
of Hudson, N.H., meets the first and third Mondays of the month at 7 p.m. at Kiwanis Hall, Melendy Ice Fishing
Road in Hudson.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one
community at a time. The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved in 1924 and
have remained unchanged for decades.
To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.

To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic
service, and to build better communities.
To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make
possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
No two Kiwanis clubs look exactly the same. Each members and communitys needs are different,
and each club looks different. Some clubs are very traditional, with weekly meetings and a strong sense
of history. Other clubs dont meet at all, and instead hold meetings online and only come together for a local organization of volunteers dedicated to
service projects. Newer clubs may follow the 3-2-1 concept: 3 hours of service, 2 hours of social activity serving the world one child and one community at a time.
and a 1 hour meeting each month. Clubs tend to reflect their communities and their members and work
to meet their needs. Flexibility is key to a successful club. Help Us Help Them. Contact 883-0374
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world its located. Kiwanis PO Box 128, Hudson, NH
members stage nearly 150,000 service projects; devote more than 6 million hours of service; and raise
nearly $100 million in the U.S. every year for communities, families and projects. Key club members Hudson Kiwanis supports locally:
pitch in 12 million hours of service each year, and CKI members another 500,000 hours of service. Club Alvirne High School Scholarships
members donate another 92,000 hours of service every year. Add it all up, and thats more than 18 Campbell High School Scholarships
million hours of service every year!
The local Hudson Kiwanis club recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. Originally an offshoot of the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute
Nashua club, there are still some members who came to Hudson from the Nashua club, which joined Hudson Girls Softball Kiwanis Ball Field
forces with Hudson due to an aging membership and low numbers. Meals on Wheels High School Key Clubs
The Hudson club sponsors two high school key clubs with over one hundred students participating.
There are clubs at both Campbell High in Litchfield and Alvirne High in Hudson. Key clubs are the
Blessed John XXIII Food Pantry
high school service club extension of Kiwanis. The kids participate in service and leadership projects Girls Inc. of New Hampshire
throughout the year. Many key clubbers go on to continue volunteerism in college and beyond, giving Alvirne Sports & Academic Clubs
back to their communities and the children locally. and many more....
Its great to see the enthusiasm and interest at the high school level, explained Key Club Coordinator
Mike Hardy. Kiwanis will be awarding $10,000 in Alvirne High School, and $5,000 to Campbell High
Kiwanis has been offering scholarships for many years, and recently hit the $15,000 per year total in
annual awards.
We focus on students who show that they like to volunteer in the community, said club President Bob
Guessferd. Its nice to recognize students efforts volunteering in the community. We hope that spirit
stays with them through college, and when they come back and join the work force here in Hudson.
Kiwanis is always looking for people who want to help with community projects, organize events and
local fundraisers, or who just want to meet some new, like-minded friends.
Hudson Kiwanis meets at 14 Melendy Rd. (Hudson Bingo Hall) in Hudson on the first and third
Monday of each month. The Hudson club is looking to partner with folks who have a heart for helping
out in Hudson and the surrounding communities.
