Pennsylvania Circle K Members, Officers, Advisors, Alumni and Kiwanis Family members,

Given the recent news and events occurring with the COVID-19, the Pennsylvania Circle K District Board and the Pennsylvania Kiwanis District Board have decided to cancel this year’s District Convention in State College, Pennsylvania. With the recent university and college decisions, the District Boards feel this is in the best interest of everyone to support and suspend this large gathering. In addition, other Pennsylvania Kiwanis Family events have been cancelled including Pennsylvania Kiwanis Mid-Year and Pennsylvania Key Club Convention.

Our District Office is working to process refunds for all registered attendees. Hotel rooms booked under the Circle K room block will be canceled by the hotel. If you made your room reservation outside the room block, please call the hotel directly to cancel your room. We expect this process to be completed in the upcoming weeks. If you have specific questions about your refund, please reach out to our District Office Executive Director Kevin Thomas – ketkiwanis@aol.com.

We will be sharing more information about next steps to District Business that would have been conducted at the convention in the upcoming days. This includes elections, awards, administration year transitioning, the new District Service Project (DSP), and program ads. 

Know that first and foremost, your safety is our top priority. Focus on your health and your family first. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact your Lt. Governor or reach out to us with our contact information below.

Yours in Service, Leadership, and Fellowship,

Emily Stoner, Governor                                   Kelly Shaup, Administrator
