May 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

The Governor of the New England & Bermuda District of Kiwanis International, Daniel C. Bennett, is this week paying his official visit to Bermuda. He, along with a group of some 26 Kiwanians from both the New England area and from Bermuda, is here on the cruise ship Norwegian Dawn.

Today will see the District Governor pay courtesy calls at Government House and at the Cabinet Office, after a short visit to Teen Haven – a beneficiary of various Kiwanis projects. Then it will be off to St George’s for a luncheon and a get-together with local Kiwanis members. His plans also call for a short stop at the St George’s Preparatory School to visit members of the K-Kids [a junior division of Kiwanis].

Governor Bennett officiates over 21 divisions in his district, and the two clubs in Bermuda – the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton and the Kiwanis Club of St George’s – make up Division 21,

For the past 14 years the New England & Bermuda District Governor has made the cruise from Boston to Bermuda, and has been accompanied by numerous members.

The Lieutenant Governor of the Kiwanis in Bermuda – Marie Kent-Smith – says it is indeed an honour to host the District Governor. She adds that “these official visits prove to be an inspiration to local members, and also give all Kiwanians here the chance to ‘catch up’ with Kiwanis developments worldwide”.

Kiwanis International itself – headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana – is some 103 years old, and the New England & Bermuda District this year celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers, dedicated to improving the world – one child and one community at a time.
