WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR THE KIWI CLUB!
MESSAGE FROM THE KIWI CLUB PRESIDENT:
Hello Fellow Kiwis:
We have finally reached December in a year to Remember (or forget). We have made so many changes in our lives. So much so, that I am having to keep a journal for my journal of just th e daily changes. Life, work, and volunteering. Just yesterday, my daily journal asked me if I needed to add new pages and if so, how many?
WHAT DOES OUR NATIONAL BOARD
DO FOR US?
I hope that everyone is taking time for themselves. This year we have had the extremes. Laughter, crying, limited gatherings and self-isolation. Each of us need to take a deep breath and take a health and mental check. Are you eating properly? Are you getting enough rest? Do you need to reach out? Just how are we all coping?
The holidays are normally a fun and exciting time for us. This year we have seen so many changes. Possibly not being able to be with your family or loved ones. Being alone or limited to your small group. If you know someone in your Chapter or just a neighbor that might be alone this Holiday Season and not always by choice, please take a moment to reach out to them. We are all stressed and worried and scared!
Let us all hope and pray that the New Year brings a change for the good.
Whatever your belief is regarding the Covid Virus or not, whether you believe in a higher being or not, please continue to have a “positive” attitude and believe that we can get through all these changes. That we will all be able to see each other soon and that we will all be able to gather as one Club at the next Kiwi Convention in 2022.
We, as your Kiwi Club National Board, wish you and your family a Healthy and Safe Holiday Season!
KIWI DUES ARE NOW DUE.

There are now 44 Kiwi chapters in 21 states making up our national organization.

About the Kiwi Club
As a group, we support Wings, an organization that provides aid to American Airlines Flight Attendants who are in critical need of financial assistance as a result of illness, injury, calamity or disability.Additionally, we take care of our own by donating $1 of our dues to the National Kiwi Fund, a fund that helps Kiwis in need. Read about our Kiwi Club National Endeavor, click here.
Kiwis know how to have fun! However, we combine the fun with caring - for each other and our communities. At our meetings and social events, you will always hear laughter - we laugh at our flight tales and reminisce about the wonderful adventures we had during our flying careers and now in our everyday lives.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Kiwi Club, please contact the National Vice President, K-Lynn Hoffmann Yelvington, of the Carefree Kiwi Chapter.
Kiwis meet every two years for Convention, where the business of the club takes place and National officers are elected for the next term. Although one purpose for having a convention is to take care of the business of the club, we find time to kick up our heels while enjoying a resort or location chosen and hosted by a local Kiwi chapter or chapters.
