Greetings from Governor John Chave

When I was growing up in Toronto, Canada, I had two wonderful role models – my mom and dad. They taught me by example the importance of giving back to my community. They both volunteered their time to improve the lives of those less fortunate than them. That lesson stuck with me, and I have continued their legacy with my Service club of choice, KIWANIS.

I have very much enjoyed my year as Governor Elect and am looking forward to serving as your Governor in 2023 – 2024.

One of my goals this year will be to support the concept of “GRASS ROOTS KIWANIS”. In essence, this means growing those small service projects where we can see firsthand the fruits of our labours as we strive to support and enhance the lives of children and families in our communities and elsewhere around the world.

I urge you all this year to continue the great work that you do at whatever level in the organization that you are, and to support those in your communities and around the world who need your help.

Let us not forget that “It’s all about the KIDS.”

Together we can do amazing things!

Yours in Kiwanis Service,


John Chave, Governor, 2023 – 2024
