The Kiwanis Club of San Carlos manages the award of the Mort Korengold.
This prestigious award considered the Division 34 Kiwanian of the Year Award, was begun as a tribute to the late Mort Korengold, who died of heart failure while serving as President of the San Carlos Club December 19, 1982. Each year the award is presented at the Lt. Governor Installation Banquet to a Kiwanian, selected from nominees submitted by various clubs in the division, who best exemplifies what Kiwanis is all about.
Objects of Kiwanis International
The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.
To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
