“One Can Make a Difference” – President’s Rose – Ken Birch

Ken was introduced to our Club 24 years ago and has spent time on many different committees in our Club, volunteering thousands of hours as one of our very active members. Ken quietly gives much of himself to our Club, in a very unpretentious way. He has single-handedly organized putting contests at local golf tournaments throughout the city, and has raised almost $3,000 each year, which he chooses to donate to our Community Services Committee. He is also a regular volunteer for our own Golf Tournament, and this year manned the Hole-In-One. Following the Objects of Kiwanis International, Ken promotes the adoption of higher social, business and professional standards and offered to take on the job of orchestrating the advertising by our members in our Membership Roster, and because of his hard work, we have realized almost $10,000 for each of the past 3 years, thereby covering all costs and leaving us with a $5,000 surplus. Ken’s professionalism and expertise has added greatly to our club. He is a pillar of strength and security, with unfaltering dedication to our club and our projects. Thanks for Making a Difference, Ken!
