2018 DCON Bride to Service

The 101st Pennsylvania District Convention was held on August 9-12, 2018 at the Doubletree Pittsburgh Greentree Hotel. The Host Committee, under the leadership of Keith Smith, put together an outstanding event and program.

Two highlights included the opening picnic at Pittsburgh's West End View on Thursday, August 9th and the River Cruise and Dinner on Friday evening. All that was wrapped around a lot of great speeches and forums as well as service. A school supply drive was conducted for the local Boys and Girls Club, the service room was always busy and 11 pints of blood were collected for the local blood bank.

We thank Kiwanis International Trustee Greg Beard for the time spent with us and for his insight and guidance. And we thank Dr. Al Condelucci for his great closing address on Sunday to send us home on a high note.

The Foundation's Theme Baskets, donated by Clubs and Kiwanians, raised over $4,300 to support the Foundation's activities. The District's Kiwanis Cash Raffle, under the leadership of Past Governor Jen Vare, set records for money raised, bringing in $8,580 for the District. The first place winners are Missy and Ben Osterhout ($6,006); second place is the Kiwanis Club of Hermitage ($1,716); third place is Fred Lucas ($858).

Elected Governor is Phil Weber from the Kiwanis Clubs of Emmaus and Centennial Internet. In the election for Governor-elect, a contested election between Mike Haven from the Kiwanis Club of Williamsport and Don Smith from Annville-Cleona & Palmyra Area, Mike Haven was chosen by the assembled delegates. And Cathy Szymanski, from the Kiwanis Clubs of Erie, PA EKiwanis 2.0, Centennial Internet and Linglestown Area, was unanimously endorsed by the assembled delegates to be a candidate for Kiwanis International Trustee at the 2019 Kiwanis International Convention.

It was a great convention! Hope to see you in Williamsport next year on August 8-11, 2019.
