We are saddened to announce the passing of Dr. Wil Blechman, a Past Governor of the Florida District and Past President of Kiwanis International.
A number of years ago, when the Florida District supported the candidacy of Past Governor Wil Blechman for International Trustee, we knew that we were offering a qualified and dedicated candidate for the office. But none of us knew that Dr. Wil would change the face and direction of Kiwanis forever. While he was the 1990-91 Kiwanis International President, Dr. Wil was the father of “Young Children: Priority One”. Wil and his wife, Rachel, pioneered new partnerships, new visions, and new dreams for Kiwanis. What originally began as a three-year program has grown into a permanent emphasis program of Kiwanis. Kiwanis has enjoyed tremendous International recognition and acclaim because of the focus of Young Children: Priority One. But more importantly, young children's lives have been positively changed around the globe.
There will be a celebration of life at a future date. ... See MoreSee Less
