Kiwanis - Serving the Children of the World!
About heroes without capes..."When I was very young, most of my childhood heroes wore capes, flew through the air, or picked up buildings with one arm. They were spectacular and got a lot of attention. But as I grew, my heroes changed, so that now I can honestly say that anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero to me."
-Quote from Mr. Rogers in The World According to Mr. Rogers
