In the photo are some members planning our many service projects and scholarships for students. We are meeting on alternate Thursdays at 8:30am at member Pat Veuve’s house. On alternate Thursdays we still meet on zoom. The goal of Kiwanis is improving the world one child at a time. Most of our activities are for and with schools, students and organizations that support children. We approved a large college scholarship for Emily Mondragon a graduating senior at Montgomery High School. Emily has been an active volunteer at her high school Key club. Key Club students do many service projects for our community. This year and last they volunteered at the Redwood Empire Food center and recently cleaned our beaches for Earth Day. Oakmont Kiwanis members worked right beside them. Our Kiwanis club supports two Kiwanis high school Key clubs. One is at Montgomery and the other at Maria Carrillo. We approved funds to buy dictionaries for all 2nd grade students at Kenwood School and funds for library books at Luther Burbank School. We made donations to the Luther Burbank Art Center Summer Program and to CASA foster care program. I leave you with this Desmond Tutu thought, “do your little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put all together that overwhelm the world.”

But as an article in All About Pétanque points out, although it may be diminutive in size the pétanque target ball has the richest vocabulary of names.
