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.
Point Loma - Water4Life - Nairobi
The Point Loma Kiwanis Club is currently partnered with the Water4Life Ministry, which is dedicated to providing clear and safe drinking water to all the Third World Nations.
These photos were taken in Nairobi, Kenya. This orphanage has over 100 children now drinking safe water from the filters that the Point Loma Club funded. More filters are being distributed in the slums.
These filters cost about $25.00 and each filter is good for a million gallons of water!!
