La Mirada~On Wednesday, the 23rd of September, members of the La Mirada Kiwanis Club, spouses and friends met for an installation dinner of the new term of the La Mirada Kiwanis Club.   

Longtime Kiwanian Tony Armas with outgoing President, Debbie Scheibel

All in all, the plusses well outweighed any negatives.  The Club enjoyed a membership growth from 34 to 52; and for the math inclined, that’s a 53% increase. 

Kiwanis also hosted the second annual Duck Race, served Tri-Tips at the 3rd of July City fireworks show, sold fireworks, and sold hamburgers at the city Stroll in the Park.  We served pancakes to all comers at many, many youth activities.  We cooked the pancakes for the Knabe Katch and treated some 50 plus children to a Shopping Spree last Christmas at Sears, with breakfast after at Ruby’s.

When everything was totaled, we logged in 1783 hours on 89 projects, spending over $17,000 on service projects.  We gave out $11,000 in Scholarships to local seniors plus over $12, 500 in donations.  Debbie thanked all members for their efforts and singled out some special members for their continuing efforts. 

She called up Tony Armas, Ronnie Knight, John Tovar, Reed Taylor and Lou Piltz, giving them awards for their continuing efforts.  She gave hats to each to signify their specialty, with Tony getting a hot dog hat, Ron, a patriotic hat, John, an umbrella hat, Reed, a Fire Chief hat and Lou, a wizard hat.
