THE KIWANIS CLUB has been challenged to continue its service in the community. This call is coming from Minister of Social Care, Constituency Empowerment and Community Development Steve Blackett, who delivered the feature address last Saturday at the Kiwanis Club of Barbados Central 21st anniversary dinner at the Hilton Barbados hotel. Outlining and commending some of the numerous charitable programmes that the club had been involved in over the years, Blackett said it was considered one of the standard-bearers among service organizations based on its tireless work in communities. The fellow Kiwanian was optimistic that the club would continue to focus on the core values of service and commitment, at the same time embracing new processes, becoming increasingly agile and responsive to the changing needs of the society it serves, while not losing its intrinsic character or original mandate.
