Division 35 is one of 44 Divisions in the California-Nevada-Hawaii District of Kiwanis International.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanis is made up of individual members of local clubs. The clubs set their own community and public service projects and goals, but are asked to unite with the other Kiwanis International clubs to make a difference worldwide.
The Clubs are organized into regional Divisions in order to best serve their communities.
Division 35 is made up of Kiwanis Clubs throughout the San Gabriel Valley, in Southern California, based in the following locations:
- Covina (South Hills)
- El Monte
- Glendora (2 Clubs -- Glendora & Glendora Kiwanianne)
- Hacienda Heights
- Sierra Madre
- Walnut Valley (serving Diamond Bar, Walnut & Rowland Heights)
- West Covina

Each Division is guided by a Lieutenant Governor. This year's (Oct. 1, 2014 - Sept. 30, 2015) LTG is Mahmood Bashir of the Kiwanis Club of Hacienda Heights.
Our Division 35 Theme this year is "Lead with your Heart, Invest in our Youth, and Serve with a Smile."
I am thrilled and proud to serve with all of you"Top Guns of Service" as we soar high "On the Wings of Service" (our District motto this year). Our District focus this year is to Grow, ELIMINATE, and Celebrate.. As we implement "The Formula" and put our minds to "Love It", "Share It", and "Live It", lets wow to strengthen our existing clubs with increased membership, and start new clubs in our communities. Lets work hard to reach our goal of raising 110 million dollars for ELIMINATE, and get rid of Maternal Neo-Natal Tetanus. Lets gear up and plan for a huge celebration for Kiwanis 100 year anniversary next year. I invite each and every one of you to get involved with our Sponsored Youth, our best hope for a better tomorrow. These dedicated and passionate young service leaders need our guidance and continued support. I can't think of a better way to do this, but to: Lead with your Heart, Invest in our Youth, and Serve with a Smile.

Our Division 35 Theme this year is “GEMS”:

E is for “Encourage”, support our Sponsored Youth Programs while building leaders for tomorrow’s Kiwanis Clubs.
M is for “Member”, bring new members and current members together to build a strong relationship within our communities.
S is for “Service”, apply whenever possible the Kiwanis slogan “Serving The Children Of The World One Child At A Time”. This can be accomplished through our Sponsored Leader Programs and within our Communities. Let’s be CNH “Superheroes of Service”.
I look forward to serving as Division 35 Lt. Governor for 2013-2014 and making GEMS of us all.

Lieutenant Governor for the 2012-2013 administrative year was Brad Manning of the Kiwanis Club of West Covina.
Brad's Mission Statement for Division 35:
My theme this year [was] "Superheroes for Kids" which emphasizes our support for our Sponsored Youth Programs: K-Kids, Aktion Clubs, Builders Clubs, Key Clubs, KIWIN's and Circle K. As Superheroes, we have the responsibility of bringing leadership opportunities and skills to our youth from elementary through college levels. In addition, our Kiwanis Clubs have many ways of supporting youth from getting involved in their activity programs, to providing clothes, food and school supplies, to providing scholarships.
Children are Kiwanis’ Priority One and as the Division 35 Sponsored Leadership Program Chairman the past 5 years, I have seen how important that working with our sponsored youth is the success of Kiwanis. The guidance, wisdom, and leadership opportunities that we provide these students is extremely valuable for them now and for their future. Therefore, it is my goal that everyone put on their Superhero Persona and get a little more involved with the kids.

Since Kiwanis first came to the West Coast in 1917, Kiwanis members of California, Nevada, and Hawaii have been making a positive impact on the communities and people around them. From disaster relief efforts to youth scholarship programs, being in Kiwanis is all about "giving back."With more than 17,000 Kiwanis members (and more than 40,000 members in our Service Leadership Programs), the Cal-Nev-Ha District is the biggest in Kiwanis International. Our clubs and members contribute in excess of $5.3 million and 850,000 volunteer service hours to their communities each year! Together, we ARE changing the world, one child and one community at a time. For more information about the Cal-Nev-Ha District of Kiwanis, please visit www.cnhkiwanis.org.
About Kiwanis International
The prior year's (Oct. 1, 2011 - Sept. 30, 2012) Division 35 Lieutenant Governor was Lon Salgren of the Hacienda Heights Club. "My theme this year [was] “Plant a Seed, Grow a Kiwanian." A new crop of Builders Clubbers, Key Clubbers and KIWIN’s have the opportunity to share the same experience in service leadership that I experienced as a kid. The seed was planted in me years ago, whether I was conscious of it or not. As an adult I knew that when I had time in my schedule to join a community service organization, it would be Kiwanis. No other club invests as much as Kiwanis in bringing leadership opportunities and skills to our youth from elementary through college levels. I am confident that when we plant those seeds, working side-by-side with our sponsored youth and reminding them that they are the future of Kiwanis, they will grow into fine Kiwanians." Remember: the more members our clubs have, the more service they can do to support their communities. The growth of Membership leads to growth in Service and when you do service & have enough members you can have more fun. This focus is based on the Cal-Nev-Ha Governor's "Carrier of Service" Theme.
