This is a mini-convention for the I-I District held approximately halfway through the Kiwanis year. This is a great chance to catch up with Kiwanians from around the district and party for a weekend.
Every year we all hear that this year’s convention will be different, but this year really will be different. The I-I District Circle K will be joining us in Oak Brook for their annual District Convention.
