The Kiwanis Club of Statesboro was named as one of the Top Ten Kiwanis Clubs Internationally on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at the Signature Project Breakfast during the 2022 Kiwanis International Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Statesboro club President John Banter and President-Elect Chris Wiggins attended the awards breakfast this morning in Indianapolis. They are representing the Statesboro club this week at the annual convention.

“I am extremely proud of our club for being recognized by Kiwanis International, said John Banter, Statesboro President. “The members of our Fair Committee are who really deserve the accolades with this recognition as they put in countless hours all year long to make sure the fair is a safe and fun event for families.” 

Out of a record number of 415 club entries, representing 38 districts, Kiwanis Club of Statesboro was named as a Top Ten Club. The top clubs were notable for both reuniting communities and reaching out to form new connections following a turbulent year that included COVID-19 lockdowns, natural disasters and violent conflicts. Through fun outdoor events and hands-on service, these clubs promoted health, education and fellowship in creative and effective ways.

Every year, Kiwanis International recognizes the best signature projects from around the world. Signature projects are the hallmarks of Kiwanis clubs in their communities. Some clubs are known locally for building and maintaining a playground. Others create festivals and fundraisers to support the work that makes a community a better place for all kids.
