December 2020 was a much different time for your Oakmont Kiwanis Club bell ringers who support the Salvation Army in their holiday drive. In 2019 we had small groups in front of both Safeway doors. Montgomery High School Key Club members joined us in singing carols. This December Safeway did not want us at all, but Oliver’s let us ring the bells, one ringer per hour. We did very well though.
The January-February 2021 Kiwanis Magazine has arrived. The cover story is about the great baseball legend, Al Oliver. He is a dedicated Kiwanian. Oliver had signed on with the Pittsburg Pirates at 17 years old. He grew up in Portsmouth, Ohio which was a steel and manufacturing town but by the 1950’s overseas competition led to its decline. Oliver left his mark on baseball. In his career he exceeded 2,700 hits and over 1,000 RBI’s. He was a Seven time All Star. “Life’s a hit-don’t strike out,” became Oliver’s personal saying. After retiring, Oliver joined Kiwanis in December, 1990. Oliver says, “One thing I really loved was that for me in Kiwanis children were priority one.” AND Oakmont Kiwanis Club members agree and volunteer for schools.
