Kiwanis flag to fly outside City Hall to celebrate centennial

Kiwanis celebrating its centennial in 2015

The Kiwanis flag will fly at City Hall for the week of March 23-28.

If you happen to pass by Courtenay City Hall the week of March 23-29, look up; you’ll see the Kiwanis International flag on one of the flag poles.

Kiwanis International and the City of Courtenay share the same birth year, and as such, Kiwanis will be celebrating its centennial in 2015 as well.

In its first 100 years, Kiwanis has branched out to more than 80 nations and geographic areas.

Membership in Kiwanis and its family of clubs is nearly 600,000 members strong, they annually raise more than US$100 million, and report over 18 million volunteer hours to strengthen communities and serve children.

The Kiwanis Club of Courtenay is proud to fly the Kiwanis flag on one of the flag poles outside City Hall for the week beginning March 23.

The club will be holding a 100th anniversary Junktique in St. George’s Church Hall on Friday, March 27 from 6-8 p.m. and Saturday, March 28 from 8 a.m to noon.
