Kaizen is the Japanese art of continuous improvement. This concept stresses the need for continual improvement in order to achieve high levels of quality. At the club level, it is important to keep this in mind: If we are not doing anything to improve our clubs, we remain stagnant and eventually begin to backtrack.

Starting in 2021/2022, each year, District 35 recognizes clubs that have been at least Distinguished for 3 years in a row. This is a major accomplishment for a club, and District 35 is proud to be able to recognize these clubs for their efforts both over the past year and in previous years.

Clubs earning this distinction will receive a trophy and each current member of the club will receive a certificate.
