About Jen

October/November Greeting

I am a fan of musical theater, and a song that I love to sing along to on long car rides is “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha. In this song, Quixote explains his quest to dream the impossible dream, to right the unrightable wrong, to try when your arms are too weary, to reach … the unreachable star. It’s an inspiring message that has always resonated with me, particularly now, as we start our new Kiwanis year of service.

As Kiwanians, we all have dreams to improve our communities, that’s why we joined this amazing organization in the first place. We see the wrongs in our society and we make them right. Even when it is overwhelming, and takes a lot work.

My dream for all of us this year, is that we reach our goals. That the time we spend together is impactful, and inspiring. That our clubs find more hands for service. And that all of our members grow in wonderful ways – by learning, networking, and having fun!

Often one can find a long road ahead to be daunting – but I see it as a new adventure. Unlike Quixote, my dream is not an impossible one. Best wishes as you kick off another Kiwanis year serving children and your communities. I look forward to getting to work with all of you to create brighter future, together!

Yours in Kiwanis service,

Jen Wolff
