The San Diego Kiwanis Club finished off May with a great meeting and an eye toward wellness. Club President Judy Leitner welcomed everyone on time and went straight into the Pledge of Allegiance. Club Secretary Karina Sousa shared a meaningful invocation that was especially timely and fitting for our current world.
The Club participated in a quick refresher on ZOOM etiquette and welcomed guests to the meeting including Christy Boland, who IS related to Mike, and Joanna Luz from the Point Loma Kiwanis Club. Mr. Boland highlighted Club members Greg Maginn from Cal State Games and Alexandra Kritchevsky from the New Children’s Museum who were joining for the first time since the quarantine hit.
Bill’s Bucks raised over $300 dollars as club members put in donations for various reasons including renewed work opportunities and small blessings brought by current circumstances. Secretary Sousa shared Club Tidings from 1995 and there were some surprising names and facts!
Mike welcomed special presenter Isabel Lorimer who is the Director of Community Fitness for Fitness Together Rancho Bernardo. Isabel went through some basic wellness facts and best practices and then asked everyone to get out of their chairs. She led the group through general stretching and breathing exercises for all levels of movement and demonstrated how they should look and feel for participants. After 20 minutes of exercise she took questions and agreed to send the stretches and other suggestions to the Club for future use.
The meeting adjourned at 1:30. Please joins us on June 2nd for a Virtual Cheese Tasting from Venissimo Cheese!
