Clergy Appreciation Week is an international project of Civitan International, which honors local leaders of all faiths for their dedicated service to their local communities. Since 1963, Civitan clubs around the world have set aside a week in February of each year to honor local faith leaders for their acts of service.
At our January 15 monthly meeting, our own Billy Kennedy spoke about his work on our District committee and what is going on with the District. Our District includes a number of clubs that are all doing some important civic work and service projects. We are honored to have one of our own members serving on this committee.
