There were 36 mem­bers present on their com­put­ers or phones for our Kiwa­nis Eye of the Tiger e‑club meet­ing held on the evening of April 16th. From Cal­i­for­nia to Jamaica, Ontario to Flori­da, our club of 56 mem­bers strong enjoyed the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect once again. With every area of the world con­fronting the cur­rent pan­dem­ic, it is good to know that Kiwa­ni­ans con­tin­ue to make a difference.
