Hoeven Honors 100th Birthday of Kiwanis Club of Minot, Veterans Lynn Aas & John Sinn

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven this week spoke on the Senate floor and submitted a statement for the congressional record in honor of the Kiwanis Club of Minot celebrating 100 years of serving the Minot community as well as the 100-year birthdays of two Kiwanis members, Mr. Lynn Aas and Mr. John Sinn of Minot. Hoeven, a former member of the club, noted the contributions of the Kiwanis Club in making the Minot community a better place to live and extended his gratitude to the club’s hard-working and dedicated members.

“Since its founding on May 27, 1921, the Kiwanis Club of Minot has helped make my home town a better place to live,” said Hoeven. “As a former member of this organization, I deeply appreciate their continued dedication and contributions to the community and surrounding area. Some examples of their work include donating books to schools, supporting the arts, and raising money for local service organizations, like the Boy Scouts, Juvenile Drug Court and Domestic Violence Crisis Center. In these ways, Minot’s local Kiwanis chapter helps realize the mission of this international organization and makes a real difference to families and children in the region. 

“At the same time, two notable Kiwanis members, Mr. Lynn Aas and Mr. John Sinn, are also celebrating their 100th birthdays this year. As part of the greatest generation and World War II veterans, Lynn and John have both been an important part of the Minot community and set a great example for their fellow Kiwanis members.”
