Serving the Children of the World
The Kiwanicle is a publication chronicling in words and pictures the activities of the Kiwanis Rosemead Family of Clubs (RFC).
The RFC presently includes: Rosemead Kiwanis, RHS KEY Club, Don Bosco KEY Club, Muscatel Builders Club, and San Gabriel Valley Aktion Club. It is our hope that in the near future there will be additional clubs added to this list.
The Kiwanicle is produced and distributed via e-mail to members of the above groups; it is also posted here as a matter of historical record for those interested.
