     Rosemead                  Index - 2012





          Serving the Children of the World



The RKC Kiwanicle (and RKC Member Bulletins and Special Bulletins) are publications chronicling in words and pictures the activities of the Rosemead Family of Kiwanis (RFK) groups and certain affinity groups. 


The RFK presently includes: Rosemead Kiwanis, RHS KEY Club, Don Bosco KEY Club, and the Muscatel Builders Club. It is our hope that in the near future there will be additional clubs added to this list.  Affinity groups presently include selected faith based organizations, business owners, non-profit organizations and educators.


The Kiwanicle and related  RKC bulletins are produced and distributed via e-mail to members of the above groups; issues are also posted here as a matter of historical record for those interested.
