My Civitan Why

When I joined Civitans in 2005 a common theme I heard at the club, area and district level was the collective impact from the efforts of each club and each member in those clubs on the community they served. The Civitan International why of global impact through the local clubs, focus on creating change for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the power of research through the Civitan Research Center to affect change for the one in six people worldwide with those issues resonated with me. The community work of each of our district clubs some of which are approaching 100 years of service and our collective efforts to support the three district projects, Boys and Girls Homes of NC, the Duke Child Development Center and Special Olympics showcases our district impact. That is what keeps me in Civitan.

My Civitan Why

I grew up with a single mother who was very involved in community service activities and she instilled in us the need to give back to the community. I have been in service clubs since I was in middle school. When I moved to New Bern in 1992, I became involved with a couple of different organizations. In 1999, Leigh Wilkinson invited me to a Civitan meeting and I knew I had found the organization for me. The options offered by Civitan to participate in hands-on activities, fundraising activities, a flexible meeting requirement policy, and the opportunities to serve the Club and District are all reasons that I have remained involved.
