So what exactly is Kiwanis Family Conference? Key Clubbers, Circle K'ers and Kiwanians all met from of course the Carolinas District, Capital District, Florida District, Alabama District, a few from the Canada District, the Ohio District and many more!
We all met at the Blue Ridge Assembly Center in Black Mountain, NC around 3-5 pm where we were assigned to our families and rooms. This year, the theme was the "Worldwide Web of Service" and each family was named after a country around the world: Japan, Iceland, Switzerland, USA, Austria and many more. After a delicious southern-style dinner, we were grouped into our families for some icebreakers and team activities. The rest of the weekend was filled with meeting people, delicious food, hiking up the treacherous and incredibly long Black Mountain and exploring the nearby attractions of Black Mountain. Scott Johnson also ended the conference with a riveting speech by candlelight on Saturday evening, leaving many of the guests that weekend with tears rolling down their faces. On Sunday, after a heartwarming breakfast, we all set out on the road or even planes to head home.
Leaving all of our new friends was incredibly difficult but meeting such wonderful people who are just like us around the country was one of the most exciting and unforgettable experiences.
We hope that you will join us next year in Black Mountain for another exciting Kiwanis Family Conference!
