At the meeting in which the Crookston Kiwanis installed its new officers, club members were also recognized for their longevity.

All were presented with a pin and a certificate signed by the president of Kiwanis International, the executive director of Kiwanis International, the Crookston club president, and the club secretary.

Club members who have reached at least 25 years of membership also receive the Legion of Honor Award, and are recognized in five-year increments afterward.

“These are wonderful people who have many years of service that they are still active in weekly,” says Kiwanis member Susan Sylvester.
