On Tuesday, June 20th, our Kiwanis club met for our annual luncheon at the San Diego Zoo!
We had many beautiful guests in attendance!
John Wood brought his lovely wife, Leone
Fritz was accompanied by his beautiful wife, Susan
Shaun dressed in full zoo-keeper attire demanded his fabulous, Janet to please stand and say hello to all of our.
Always wonderful to see Jean who was accompanied by Steve Mather, the Pastor of the Coronado Community Church (and also told our President that he is a Rotarian but we welcome him anyway!)
Our Kiwanis power couple in the making, Rick + Shari Webster were in the house! Shari loves it when Rick gets fined for not having a badge or pin :)
We also had the 3 gorgeous gals from the Krause clan: Emily, Sophia + Abigal!
Major Darren Norton introduced his beautiful wife, Mary, to the crew! We almost didn't recognize him without uniform! Major decided to spend the start of his vacation at our club meeting!
And he blessed our meeting with a fantastic invocation, as always!
Then Suzie led us in the National Anthem!
We are celebrating two incredible ladies birthday's this month - Peg + Conny - and as a birthday gift, we didn't force them to wear any ridiculous birthday flair! :) Happy Birthday to all our June babies this month:
Eldon, Ryan, Jeff Blackman, Conny + Peg
(We celebrated Eldon + Ryan at our last meeting!)
As far as fines, our President graciously didn't fine for not having badges, given the plethora of excuses she received. However, we did fine for not having pins on. Be sure to have your pin for upcoming weeks or be prepared to be fined!
For Bill's bucks, we had a few happy people in the house!
Patrick was happy that they celebrated his grandparent's 70th anniversary and his new baby girl was able to meet lots of family!
Claire was thankful to be at the zoo with us! She also thanked us for supporting their annual STARPAL luncheon which raised over $150,000!
Brian put in $1 and shared that we had a blast at our evening social at Rocky's last week where we took over the entire place! And we collectively decided that Rocky's does in fact have the best burger in SD!
John was happy Bonnie wasn't there... BECAUSE she was conducting a webinar for early detection of breast cancer, that had over 850 registrants! Way to go, Bonnie!
Danny is celebrating his 40th birthday at Chris Joseph's digs - Little Italy Loading Dock - and we're all invited! Come celebrate our incoming Foundation President on July 8th at 6:00 p.m. - RSVP HERE!
Norma conducted our Annual Meeting - Agenda (can be accessed by clicking here) - Approved Minutes that we approved from last year (can be accessed by clicking here) + approved our 2020 Class of Trustees: Brian Krause, Karina Sousa, Charles (Chuck) Day
Carl was asked on the spot to be the Chairman of the Day - since it is tradition that he introduce our speaker, Bill Toone, as he has for our previous luncheons at the zoo - and he did a fabulous job as always!
Our beloved Bill Toone gave yet another impacting heartfelt presentation that we all enjoyed - going through his 3 heroes in his life stemming from his journey with the California Condor. This is Bill at a young boy
We love Bill so much that we are going to have our next luncheon on July 18th at his house to see everything that he's up to!
