Service - Circle K members moving tree limbs.
   

Service

Service has been integral in CKI since the very beginning. It’s not just the first of the three tenets mentioned; it’s first in the hearts of club members everywhere. In his keynote address at the 1963 Circle K International Convention, Trustee John H. de Boisblanc asserted,

“As we begin this convention, let us relegate to a lesser position the clamor for larger membership… Let us make our all-prevailing consideration the desire to improve our ability to render service. Let this convention go down as the convention which renewed our faith in service… This concept of service of unselfish devotion to others is among the most noble of human endeavors.”
