Hundreds of Kiwanians braved an early Saturday morning House of Delegates, where several amendments were voted on and our leadership team was elected for the 2012-2013 year. The newly elected Florida District Officers will be:
District Governor - Allen Whetsell
District Governor-Elect - Matthew Cantrell
District Treasurer - Charles Gugliuzza
Executive Director - Melanie Winternheimer
During the close of House of Delegates, George Langguth also retired from over 25 years of service to the Florida District of Kiwanis. His farewell speech touched everyone, and he will be greatly missed in the District.
Just 1 Book was also announced as one of the focuses of Kiwanis in 2012-2013. Sarah Dewitz, founder of Just 1 Book, and her family attended the convention this weekend to educate Kiwanians about the project and bring inspiration to us all.
