BBYO-KIO’s Spirit Convention one of the largest conventions in years!
Almost 200 KIO teens celebrated the annual Spirit Convention October 11th-13th, at Camp Campbell Gard in Hamilton, OH.  Teens from Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Indianapolis, and Louisville, along with 5 teens from our newest KIO community in Lexington, Kentucky, attended the weekend convention.  The theme of “Stronger” was highlighted throughout the weekend, filled with fun and lively competitions among chapters, cities, AZA, and BBG.  The teens also enjoyed Shabbat Services, trivia, discussions about leadership and participation in AZA and BBG, and the Saturday night dance.  There was a ton of enthusiasm, spirit and FUN had by all!  Mazel Tov and kudos to Convention Coordinators Herbert Meisner and Julia Rubinstein, who led a great steering committee in putting on this exciting convention.  And Kol Hakavod (a job well done) to the KIO Regional Board, led by Regional Nsiah Halle Herman and Regional Godol Zach Samuelson, for displaying the support and leadership to this exciting convention that will make KIO even “STRONGER” in the year ahead.
