Fall Conference 2013 Annually Circle K Caribbean Districts Host a retreat of leadership for Circle Kers in the District. This year’s retreat was held in the cool and beautiful hills of St. Ann at a little spot called Cloisters. The event kicked off with a long registration, after we were all in and settled we had a warm welcoming ceremony, a total of 11 circle K clubs in attendance. The Saturday was quite eventful starting off with an early morning Exercise and Jog, Officers Training, treasure hunt, Forums, prize giving, Water war and ending with a Bon fire lead by

RIO FUN !!! RIO was the first of its kind in Kiwanis Jamaica history, where for the first time Key Club, Circle K, Kiwanis, Builders Club, K-Kids and their families were all in one place having fun and interacting with each other. The event was held on November 9th at the end of Key Club Week on the grounds of Mico Teachers College. The event had a total of well over 1000 participants, of which 40 were circle Kers and 11 from the mighty UWI! UWI! UWI! The day kicked off with a 6-a-side football league placing Meadowbrook High and St.Georges College in the finals, St. Georges came out Victorious. The rest of the day was filled with fun, frolic, rides and most importantly food and lots of it. To close off the day there was a RIO after jam.

our International Trustee and the entire day we were kept fed by Head chef ALANZO and his team. Unfortunately The sun rose and the final day was here but it was still fun and fruitful, with a sports day between colors Red, Yellow, and Blue and again a day of prize giving overall it was a great weekend and loved the fact that i t was All Casual.
