The OVA and Oakmont Kiwanis Club June 11th Shred-A-Thon saw two lines of cars stretching to the end of the Berger parking lot and beyond, all waiting for the starting bell at 9am. It was obvious that many had spent indoor time during the pandemic cleaning cabinets of important paperwork. If you have never seen how the Shred-A-Thon works so well, come to our next twice yearly one in January. The OVA and Kiwanis have been collaborating to make this a free event. The OVA pays for the shredding truck, and the Kiwanians supply the labor. At the head of our line was 98 year old Wendell Freeman lifting more heavy boxes than the rest of us. BUT, Kiwanis will need more helpers in the future. If you would like to join a great service organization come to our Thursday 8am breakfast meeting and find out about how Kiwanis supports children, schools and the community. Our motto is, “improving the world one child at a time.” Many people have thanked Kiwanis members for having this event. Several years ago we started receiving donations. Now we gladly accept them and use the donations for college scholarships. This years recipient was Emily Mondragon a graduating senior at Montgomery High School. Emily has been an active volunteer at her high school Kiwanis sponsored Key Club. Besides scholarships this year Kiwanis bought dictionaries for all the 2nd grade students at Kenwood Elementary School and library books for Luther Burbank School. These are a few things where donated money goes. Come join us. Contact Jim Stewart, 707-755-3756 or Bev Singer, 707-477-7648 or Tricia Shindledecker at
