September was the month that the Burbank For Fun Kiwanis Aktion Club joined a lot of other Aktion Clubs at Wonder Valley for their annual convention. This event continues to grow exponentially every year. It is a great time for learning and renewing friendships. The Aktion Clubs are the Kiwanis service clubs for developmentally disabled adults.
The amount of time the members spend serving their communities and the projects they undertake is amazing. They all are eager to help in any way they can. Each club made a presentation of all their accomplishments during the past year. They are all so proud of one another’s achievements, as they should be.
Burbank For Fun’s Karen Young won first place in the poster contest at the California-Nevada-Hawaii District of Kiwanis level and went on to win first place again in the Kiwanis International competition. The subject of the poster was “Leadership.” The club also won first place at the Cal-Nev-Ha District level in the scrapbook contest and proceeded to win second place at the Kiwanis International level.
