Kiwanis Club Provides Opportunities for Kids to be Active
Anacortes WA is about 80
miles north northwest of Seat-
tle and 17 miles west of Mount
Vernon. There are about 16,000
residents in the area.
On August 30, 2007, mem-
bers of the Anacortes Noon
Kiwanis Club joined offi-
cials from the City of Ana-
cortes and the City’s Parks
and Recreation Department
for dedication of new play-
ground equipment at the
City’s Washington Park.
In 2005 a committee of Club
members, established under
then president Tom Thomp-
son, explored options to re-
place and upgrade the park’s
much used playground
equipment. Their research
lead to an offer to the City
to purchase latest-design
slides, webs, climbs, spins
and other systems shown to
provide safety and fitness
for young explorers.
The City accepted the pro-
posal and the Parks Depart-           $70,000 including a $15,000

Kiwanis Clubs Help CKI Rock the Ice at UVic Bonspiel
Since 1981, the University of
Victoria CKI (Circle K) Club
has been holding Bonspiel, a
weekend of curling, service,
and fun. This event at times
has rivalled district events
in size. While this year 20 of
the participants were turned
back by road closures in the
Washington state mountain
passes, those who attended
had a great time.
More than 30 CKI members
spent the first weekend in
February in beautiful Vic-
toria BC for curling, service
projects, and fun.

 He started SIGN (Surgical Implant Generation Network) to support orthopedic surgeries and help trauma
 patients in developing countries. SIGN was founded in 1999 (funded in part by the $10,000 Dr. Zirkle
 received from the Kiwanis International Foundation as part of his Kiwanis World Service Medal
 recognition). SIGN has developed new surgical technology, manufactures appropriately sized implants,
 trains surgeons and donates the products. Since SIGN was founded in 1999, there are more than 500
 SIGN-trained surgeons in nearly 100 trauma hospitals using the technology in developing countries.

 Dr. Zirkle, when he was a young surgeon in a MASH unit in Vietnam in the 1960s, saw an enormous need
 for modern surgical treatment. After nearly 30 years of semi-annual trips to teach modern surgical
 techniques to surgeons in Southeast Asia, Indonesia and Latin America brought disappointing results
 because the newly-trained surgeons quickly exhausted the supplies of surgical implants Dr. Zirkle was able
 to persuade American manufacturers to donate, he realized that progress would be limited until a way was
 found to provide the implants as well as the training.

 This was all accomplished through a company Dr. Zirkle named the Surgical Implant Generation Network
 (SIGN). Design Engineers and a Production and Support Staff were assembled and an ingenious
 alignment device was developed that permitted surgeons to "hit the slot" nearly every time, even without
 imaging equipment in the operating room.

 Explaining briefly, a victim's shattered bone fragments are held in proper position while they heal by a
 surgically implanted stainless steel "nail" installed in the bone canal. The "nail" and bone fragments are
 held rigidly together by screws that pass through the bone and through slots in the "nail." Surgeons can't
 see the slots without imaging equipment so SIGN engineers developed an apparatus (a kind of jig) that
 reliably aims the screws through the bone and the
 slot in the nail and into the bone on the other side of
 the canal.

 Instead of being in traction for life, lucky victims are
 able to take a few tentative steps the next day and
 are walking on healed legs only a few weeks after
 SIGN surgery. The victim's family has a healthy
 parent and wage-earner returned to it instead of a
 life-long invalid to care for.

                                           PAST INTL. PRESIDENT STEVE SIEMENS
                                 Kiwanis International President Steve Siemens of Des Moines, Iowa will
                                 be the Keynote Speaker at the Governor’s Banquet for the 91st Annual
                                 Pacific Northwest District Convention in Kennewick.

                                 Siemens, better known as “Mr. People Builder” or “Your Balcony
                                 Person,” is the founder and president of Siemens People Builder
                                 located in Des Moines, Iowa. Every day he fulfills a part of his personal
                                 mission statement which is “to add value to the lives of people.”

                                 He is a member of the National Speakers Association and speaks
                                 between 15 to 30 times a month for hundreds of audiences nationally
                                 and internationally.

In April 2000, President Steve earned the CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) designation from the
National Speakers Association. The highest earned designation of the Association, the CSP recognizes
a demonstrated commitment to the speaking profession through proven speaking experience, ongoing
education and ethical behavior. Throughout the entire world, only 301 NSA
members (out of a membership of 3,500) have earned this designation.

Every topic Steve presents is designed to help people achieve career
success, balanced with personal fulfillment. His leadership as a college
president, professor and entrepreneur have given him an overflow-
ing toolbox to help build people.

Kiwanians will appreciate his interactive, humorous motivational
style and their clubs will benefit from his common sense, practical
ideas and relevant message.

Siemens is also committed to giving back to his community. He is
the past Chairman of the Board of Iowa Easter Seals and of the Iowa
Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He is past Governor of the Nebraska
- Iowa District of Kiwanis International and serves on various other
boards and advisory committees. Prior to his election to the Kiwanis
Intenational Board, Steve served as chairman of the Worldwide Service
Project Campaign Committee to eliminate Iodine Deficiency Disorders.

                                HOUSING POLICIES
All Convention attendees are responsible for making their own housing arrangements and should contact the
official Kiwanis Convention hotels and motels directly. Most facilities will need a credit card to guarantee the
room. Most will also allow you to hold the reservations by sending a deposit equal to one night’s lodging.

Please refer to the Convention Housing Information flyer for rates and contact information on our official
convention hotels. Please identify yourself as a Kiwanis District Convention Attendee when you do make your
reservation. Please make note of the block release date for each hotel/motel in the Hotel Accomodations
Listing. After these dates, our convention room blocks will be released and convention reservations will then be
subject to space and rate availability.


                                                                                                                      SPECIAL CONVENTION INSERT
Conventions are booked and planned several years out. In order to make certain that there are enough rooms for
everyone who wants to attend, it is necessary for the District to commit (guarantee) to a certain number of room
nights with these facilities. This prevents another convention or sports activity from taking all of the available
rooms in the convention city – leaving no place for our convention attendees to stay.

In addition, much of the extensive meeting room space that we use for convention is provided to us on a reduced
or complimentary basis PROVIDED that we are able to meet our hotel room block commitments. Without the
credit given to the district for filling hotel rooms, we would have to pay some hefty convention center rental fees
– which would eventually translate into higher convention registration fees to all attendees.

Further – when you book your room, please make certain to ask for the Kiwanis rate. It does the district
absolutely no good if you are booked in an official district convention hotel but the credit is given to AAA,
CAA, AARP, or some other organization of which you are a member.

If the ONLY way in which you can get to the convention is to stay in another hotel or motel, by all means do
so. We want to see you at convention! However, staying at an Official Kiwanis Convention property helps
keep everyone’s convention expense affordable.
