PARSIPPANY — Gordon Meth, a past president and current member of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany, and past Governor New Jersey District, will attend the 2017 Kiwanis International convention in Paris, France during July. He represents the opinions and beliefs of the local Kiwanis club members in the discussion and decision-making in the global organization’s structure and leadership.
The Kiwanis Club of Great Parsippany is part of Kiwanis International, a global organization that provides volunteer service to support children in communities around the world. In Parsippany, the club helps children by donating to Project Graduation, High School Scholarships, Camp Nejeda, Homeless Solutions, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of Parsippany, Jersey Battered Women’s Service of Morris County, Autism, Eliminate and Children’s Specialized Hospital, Parsippany’s East and West Little Leagues, Parsippany Food Bank and many other local organizations. Money to support the projects is raised by hosting our annual golf outing, grand tasting, touch-a-truck and trivia nights.
“Kids need Kiwanis, in our community and in communities around the world,” said Greg Elbin. “Our club supports projects that would not otherwise happen without our support. We’re here to make sure all the children in our community have what they need to thrive, prosper and grow.”
The Kiwanis International convention, in its 102nd year, brings together members from around the world to share service project ideas that help kids and to gain insight into new opportunities with Kiwanis partners.
The Kiwanis Club of Great Parsippany meets at 7:15 a.m. at Empire Diner, 1315 Route 46. Community members with an interest in helping children are encouraged to attend. For more information visit our website at www.parsippanykiwanis.org.
