So much excitement at the Kiwanis Club of San Diego luncheon on December 7, 2021 at Admiral Baker Clubhouse.
President Mike Boland rang the bell and led the Pledge of Allegiance.
Vice President Susan Day provided a meaningful invocation.
The group sang "God Bless America" with long-time member and Foundation Treasurer Doug Frost.
Many guests were welcomed in addition to our speaker Ted Leitner and honoree Vic Bianchini. They included Lt. Governor of Division 21 John Crawford, Lt. Governor of Division 11 Sergio Rosas and interclub members from the Kiwanis Clubs of Bonita, Sweetwater, Grantville-Allied Gardens, Tierrsanta and Hidden Valley-Escondido.
Chairman of the Day Vic Bianchini introduced speaker Ted Leitner.
Ted entertained the audience and answered questions.
We celebrated 2 Club birthdays with members in attendance:

Carl Nettleton made a donation to the Club in honor of John Freeman, a supervisor of Carl's at the beginning of Carl's career.
