Kiwanis Club Wins State Awards

At the recent Annual Mid-Winter Conference of the New Jersey District Kiwanis International held in Edison, the Hasbrouck Heights Kiwanis Club along with the Greater Parsippany Club and the Livingston Club were the only three clubs in the state to receive all three top awards that were presented. Thirty-seven other clubs received either one or two of the awards.

The Hasbrouck Heights Club was the only one on the three honorees with a membership of less than 30. The awards were in Service to the Community, Administrative Excellence and Club Recognition.

The members who attended this conference were President Colleen Jarvis, Vice-President James Jarvis, Secretary Peter Gallo, Treasurer Marie Gallo, and Michael and Lita Petrucci. The day was spent attending workshops on various topics important to the growth of their club and expanding services to their community. ####
