On August 3rd the SDKC returned to the Admiral Baker Clubhouse & Golf Course for the first regular in person meeting of 2021. President Boland rang the bell to start the luncheon and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Club member Karina Sousa shared the Invocation and helped Doug Frost lead the attendees in “You’re a Grand Old Flag.”
The Bill’s Bucks portion of the meeting was again robust as people donated happy and sad dollars in honor of longtime Club member Bill Gibbs who attended meetings until shortly before his death at 106 years of age. During the donation segment at meetings, he would give a dollar (or more!) and say, “I’m still here!”
President Boland appointed Club member Carl Nettleton as the Chairperson of the Day. Carl extended the speaking invitation to Nancy Gudiño from Cross Border Xpress CBX. Unfortunately, Nancy was not able to join the luncheon and Carl filled in for her after she graciously shared her slide show and notes with him. Carl was familiar with the project and shared insights he had learned as well.
We hope to see you soon Nancy!
Club member Chuck Day was at the luncheon and represents Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. They were a recipient of a SD Kiwanis Club Community Impact Grant in 2020-2021 and Chuck wanted to update the members on how the money was being used to assist families who have sick children and are living at the House. We appreciate all RMHC is doing for children and families in need and is a big reason the SDKC turns out for Red Shoe Day every year!
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the Annual Awards and Installation Luncheon on September 23rd which will feature Brian Krause (Brian Burgundy) and Karina Sousa (Karina Corningstone) as the hosts of the “Anchor Man” themed presentation. You won’t want to miss it!
