Ocean Beach Kiwanis Canine Carnival 2016

Today the Ocean Beach Kiwanis Club held their 11th annual Canine Carnival at Dusty Rhodes Park in Ocean Beach. Another great event. More pictures will be on the Ocean Beach Kiwanis Facebook Page.

Water4Life at the Canine Carnival

Today the Point Loma Kiwanis Club had a booth at the Ocean Beach Kiwanis Club Canine Carnival raising money for Water4Life. The current push is to get 500 water filters to Haiti to help in that hurricane devastated country. Below is the email Rudy received from Haiti.

Here are some bullet points of what we are working on and currently seeing in the Southern Peninsula:

We are on the ground leading aid relief to the hardest hit areas and coordinating relief and distribution efforts with hundreds of partner organizations Working in conjunction with USAID, World Food Programme, Samaritans Purse, the US Military, and many more…

Have mobilized over 1.5 million meals to the Southern Peninsula, as well as bottled water and medical supplies. We are providing aid via helicopters, barges, and trucks. There are still many UNREACHED areas with people who have gone a week now with no food, water, or shelter. Cholera is spreading in areas. Currently setting up cholera treatment facilities in multiple points between Jeremie and Les Cayes. We are concerned the fatalities from starvation and cholera could greatly surpass the number killed in the storm


Long-term food supply sustainability is a concern. 90% of crops and chickens have been destroyed along coastal areas. We need partners and donors to help create sustainability in the food supply, and we are working hard on finding a solution for this!

We are praying for continued favor in our relief efforts and that logistics line up in a way that we can get to the areas that haven’t received any relief yet! Excited to hear about the first 500 filters coming to Haiti. They will be a huge component of the ongoing cholera prevention plan.

Thanks again, Rudy!

67th Point Loma Kiwanis Easter Sunrise Service

On Easter Morning, the Point Loma Kiwanis Club, in conjunction with the US Navy and Cabrillo National Monument, held their 67th annual Easter Sunrise Service. There were over 700 attendees to listen to Third Fleet Chaplain Terry Gordon talk about the resurrection.

Kiwanis One Day 2016

Kiwanis One Day was a successful outing with adults and young people working with park rangers on Mission Trails Regional "Park Beautification Day”. Kiwanis Clubs from Division 21 and their sponsored youth clubs joined together on a day of community service. Along with other community volunteers over 60 people worked together at the park on a beautiful Saturday morning on March 26th.
Participants included volunteers from Tierrasanta, Ocean Beach, Grantville/Allied Gardens, and Kearny Mesa Kiwanis Clubs; SDSU and UCSD Circle K Clubs; Serra, Patrick Henry, and Hoover High School Key Clubs; De Portola and Lewis Middle School Builders Clubs; students from Francis Parker and Olympian High Schools. Joining in also were community members who saw the “Park Beautification Day” on-line.
The leadership of the park rangers was fantastic. Ranger Mel Naidis coordinated the entire work day. Ranger Julie Aeilts led a group project in the Kumeyaay Lake Campground. Ranger Heide Gutknecht coordinated work restoring a grassland area of the park. And Ranger Araceli Dominguez worked with volunteers on restoration and beautification of the Equestrian Staging Area.
A big thanks is extended to all the volunteers and to the four knowledgable and dedicated park rangers. Kiwanis One Day was a great day of community service.


Want to make a difference!

Division 21 Kiwanis is the place to be. Twelve dynamic clubs, serving communities throughout the city of San Diego, are true difference makers.

They are dedicated to making the communities we live in and the lives of our children richer and more meaningful. Explore these twelve clubs and their websites. You will find men and women with a common purpose.

They come together in fellowship. They respond to the needs they see around them. San Diego is the "World's Finest City", and these are the people who help to make it that way. They serve schools, Boys and Girls clubs, youth organizations, Rady Children's Hospital and more through an assortment of projects and activities. What's more, they have been doing so for over 80 years, and look to do so for many more.

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the decades, they have remained unchanged.

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.

The future is now. You can make a difference. You can help create the future though the Kiwanis spirit of involvement.
