The criterias for Kiwanian of the Year are: Been a member in good standing for at least two years; Attended 60% of the meetings for the past two years; Completed a program that, in the committee’s estimation, deserves superior recognition, or held office and creatively planned Club activities for the current Kiwanis Year; Chaired a committee or served on a committee that completed Club work in a superior fashion; Worked on District or International program that brought recognition to our own Club; Completed a significant number of hours on community projects.

Our honorary for this year officially became a member of our Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany in 2011 although this member has been involved in the workings of our wonderful club for years, but this member was not official. Newsletters were created and printed, and mailed out to our membership by this involved individual before joining our Club. During this pre-membership period of time, this individual displayed a great interest in Kiwanis by attending evening meetings.
