Many Sonoma County Schools open on August 11th

If you missed the Kiwanis Carnitas and Margaritas fund raising event, Kiwanians look forward to presenting it again next year. Why does Kiwanis do projects like this and the twice yearly Shred-A-Thon. Well, the answer is, to earn money to support Kiwanis projects for children. A recent speaker was Madeleine Keegan O’Connell, chief Executive Officer at the YWCA. She spoke of the harms domestic violence does to women and children. Kiwanis will support the YWCA. The mission of Kiwanis is to inspire differences in the lives of children. The next projects the Kiwanis Club members will undertake involve pupils in our schools. The Kiwanis sponsored Key Clubs at Maria Carrillo and Montgomery High Schools are there to help students learn leadership skills through managing their clubs, doing services for their communities and attending conferences. The Oakmont Kiwanis Club looks forward to Covid disappearing, so they can be reading buddies again for students at Kenwood Elementary School where Kiwanis donates dictionaries to all 2nd graders. At both Kenwood and Luther Burbank Schools, Kiwanis members present the Hope Of America awards to 5th and 6th grade students selected for being outstanding. Besides your much appreciated donations, please come join the Oakmont Kiwanis Club in these and other endeavors. It’s fun to feel you are needed and have helped the children of our area. The Oakmont Kiwanis Club supports many other local organizations. Examples are the Santa Rosa Boys and Girls Club, Valley Of The Moon Children’s Home, Salvation Army, YWCA, CHOPS teenage club, Veteran’s Day program, Redwood Empire canned food drive, Kiwanis House in Sacramento, Kiwanis Children’s Fund and more. Kiwanis thanks the Oakmont Gardens and CHOPS teenagers and adults for their great help with the Carnitas and Margaritas event. Come join Kiwanis at the Thursday meetings at the Berger Center. A full scrambled egg breakfast starts at 8am followed by a one hour meeting. Contact Fran Lazzarini 928-202-1105 or email:
