The San Diego Kiwanis Club kicked of its Annual Meeting with Vice-President Mike Boland taking over the reins from President Judy Leitner who called in to support. The bell was rung promptly at noon and Club members recited the pledge of allegiance and were then ready for the song. Unfortunately, member and avid Padres fan Jay Jeffcoat had been taped to sing “Take me Out to the Ball Game” but had technical difficulties and couldn’t dial in.
VP Boland welcomed guests which included Lt. Governor of Division 11, Gary Trieschman who brought the Club up to date on District activities and the rescheduled District Convention. Secretary Karina Sousa went over our July birthdays and we gave a shout out to those celebrating milestones:
7/6 – Charlie Coleman
7/8 – Danny Williams
7/9 – June Prewitt
7/20 – Chuck Day
7/29 – Rick Webster
The Fines and Bill’s Bucks portion of the day melded into one as members gave donations and shared their happy and/or challenging news. Karina Sousa offered up $10 for her parents 36th wedding anniversary with Mike Boland contributing $20 for his 20th wedding anniversary. Gordon Boerner gave “just because” and other members followed suit.

After the business meeting it was time for the main event when we welcomed San Diego County Treasurer -Tax Collector and former Club member Dan McAllister.
Dan gave us some great stats and insights into trends and developments in a strange year. He reminded the group that his job is to collect monies due to the County so that is available when the initiatives it was intended for are ready for payment. Not surprisingly education is the number one receiver of assessed funds.
The Club had a few minutes to talk about upcoming events with the Tuesday Trivia Nights figuring largely into the mix. Everyone is invited to attend and there are great prizes, in addition to the ultimate Club Prize – bragging rights.
The meeting adjourned at 12:33.
Join us on September 1st when we welcome Mayor Kevin Faluconer!
