Bernard Wilson and Kelly Rogers Honored at
Kiwanis International Convention


Kiwanis International 2012/2013 president Tom DeJulio wanted to honor Kiwanis Club of Weston's Revs. Bernard Wilson and Kelly Rogers for their work at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown December 14, 2012. They were the only Kiwanians in Newtown all day. Bernard and Kelly prayed and consoled both parents and first responders at the firehouse.

So on June 29, 2013, Kiwanis International bestowed its first ever "Humanitarian Award" to both Bernard and Kelly at ceremonies at Kiwanis International's annual convention in Vancouver B.C. Bernard could not attend, so Kelly, in her gracious address captured in this video by club president Don Gary, accepted for both.
