It didn’t rain on the parade of 2 lines of cars stretching through the Oakmont main parking lot on the morning of January 29th. It was fast paced work unloading boxes and bags of papers to be shredded, and Kiwanians had many sore backs to nurture in the afternoon, but we know it is a valuable community service, and we will do it all over again in 6 months. The large shredding truck was filled to capacity by 11:30am, and we apologize to those who could not get their papers shredded.

Helping us for the first time were new members to the Oakmont Kiwanis Club, Bob and Ann Isaacs. Bob and Ann recently moved here from Sacramento. This was on orders of their 5 year old granddaughter who decided they did not live close enough for them to visit often. In Sacramento they were very active in Kiwanis from the club level up to the Ca-Nev-Ha District. They say that Kiwanis is in their blood. Both of their fathers had been active in Kiwanis and had been Lt. Governors of Division 7. Both Bob and Ann followed in those footsteps to become Distinguished Lt. Governors of that same division. Ann and Bob have fond memories of helping at fundraising and service project events. They miss their Sacramento Kiwanis family members but are excited to be involved in Oakmont.
