Civitan International is a global organization impacting lives at the grassroots level through local service clubs, and we are proud to announce that several of our arc Ambassadors have been made members of this amazing organization.
Members of Civitan share a Servant’s Heart and a desire to create positive change for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Further, Civitan membership goes beyond making a difference in the lives of others; it provides opportunities for personal growth, leadership training, and organizational experience.
Everyone had a magnificent time at the arc Ambassador Civitan Club charter celebration held at the Denver Botanical Gardens (it was a beautiful day, and yes, we roamed the gardens after the meeting). International president-elect Patsy Perkal presented the group with the mission and the rules that govern the club and introduced the club’s officers. Michelle Knight is the president and is charged with coming up with ideas for the club in its efforts to benefit the community. Kyle Knoeble is vice president, Elnaz Sobhi is the secretary, and Dominick Rivera is the treasurer. Each was presented with a special officer pin representing the special role they have in the club.
All members were presented with a pin and a charter member certificate. The pins are emblazoned with the organization’s motto: “Civitan hands – do the work of the world.”
The message of good citizenship rooted in compassion, service, and respect for people in need is central to the club. Check back with this blog to stay apprised of the many worthy efforts the new arc Ambassadors Civitan Club will accomplish.
