The Oakmont Kiwanis club and OVA are making plans for the Oakmont Veteran’s Day celebration on Thursday, November 11. Colin, OVA IT and Communications coordinator was the speaker at one of the recent Kiwanis meetings. Kiwanis is proud that Colin is a member of the Oakmont Kiwanis club, and we can coordinate events happening in Oakmont which involve Oakmont and Kiwanis. Also included in our membership are representatives from The Gardens, Oakmont’s Senior Assisted Living Complex. Lisa Lomeli and Moro Becerri, Sales Directors, were guest speakers at a recent meeting. The Kiwanis Club was then invited to a nice breakfast meeting at the Gardens on August 5th. The plan for now is to continue these joint meetings. The first Thursday of each month the Kiwanis Club will have a breakfast meeting at the Gardens. We hope the Garden Residents will join us at 8 am and become members, if they like. The other Thursdays of each month the Club will have breakfast meetings at the Berger Center at 8am. Come join us at either location and feel included in planning future Oakmont events.

At our August 12 th meeting a letter was read from the Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanis Children’s Fund. To give readers an idea of our commitment to children, I will quote from the letter, “You,ve made the future brighter for the children and families we serve with your contribution to the Ca-Nev-Ha Children’s Fund.

Your generosity funds grants for bicycle rodeos and child safety fairs, which teach communities how to prevent pediatric trauma from occurring in the first place.

Your commitment provides scholarships which allow students to fulfill their quest for higher education and funds the training of student leaders in Key Club, KIWIN’S and Circle K, allowing them to obtain the skills necessary to become the leaders of our next generation…”

The Oakmont Kiwanis Club sponsors Kiwanis Key Clubs at Montgomery and Maria Carrillo High Schools. We help these students with their events helping their communities.

We invite you to attend our meeting and find out other service projects we are involved in. Contact Fran Lazzarini 928-202-1105.

9/11 Memories and Exercise

Today we remember the day that shocked and shook the world with a painful look back. This is also a time to look ahead at how to mitigate lingering negative responses. Living in constant concern, anxiety and fear robs the good from each day. Deep breathing and reading comics may be ways to cope. Talking to a positive person might be another. And still a third: exercise.
