2016-17 Governor's First Family Project

Today's Readers Tomorrow's Leaders


Each year the Governor's Family chooses a project meaningful to them for the betterment of our communities and asks all Kiwanis Clubs in the District to help support this project in some way. This year Bill and Peggy Flinta have chosen literacy as their project. Each club is being asked to survey their community and determine a literacy related need they can help solve. They should choose a project that is meaningful to them and within their means to complete. The possibilities are endless, but please see Bill and Peggy's list of 102 possible projects to get your ideas flowing.

Clubs are being asked to include their Service Leadership Program participants in the project with them to further strengthen the bonds of the Kiwanis Family. The success of this project will be measured in hours of literacy related service to our communities. Be sure to report your service on the Kiwanis Monthly Report and by sending the following form to Governor Bill Flinta at gobuckspbf@sbcglobal.net or by mail to Bill Flinta, 4182 Leewood Rd, Stow, OH 44224.

Often donations are made to the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation for the First Family Project at the Governor's Official Visit to Divisions and at other times throughout the year.  These will gladly be accepted again this year. All proceeds received this year will be used to fund small grants back to Ohio Kiwanis Clubs to assist them with literacy related projects or to fund other literacy related  projects within Ohio.

Your support of this project will improve literacy within Ohio and for our Ohio families. Thank your for your support of this project. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Peggy Flinta at (330) 801-6224 or at gobuckspbf@sbcglobal.net.
