What's Happening....

4/26/2019...Sunshine City Kiwanis meeting with Rachel Arndt, volunteer coordinator with Tampa Bay Watch. As an estuary, Tampa Bay is a fragile ecosystem which is being threatened by development. Their mantra is “Restoring the Bay Every Day”. Located near Fort Desoto Park, they have 22 employees. They use volunteers to help with planting grasses and restoring marshes and habitats. So far, they have restored over 170 acres of salt marshes. Oyster restoration is another big ongoing project because oysters help filter water, improving water quality.#tampabaywatch
4/5/2019...Sunshine City Kiwanis meeting with Brittany Peterson from Suncoast Center. Brittany works as a child advocate for kids that have been physically or sexually abused. They counsel and support the kids through the whole process including meeting with the state prosecutor. Brittany also goes into the schools to talk about social safety. She preaches on 5 safety rules. #suncoastcenter#kidsneedkiwanis

The crew was out to Ronald McDonald house on March 2 to cook breakfast for the residents. Richard French did the eggs, Jan Merrick did the muffins, Larry Sousa baked the sausage, Don Knowles did the setup and OJ and took food to the West House, while Kenny Alderman made pancakes.  Jack Bowman brought the food...and was chief taste tester.
 
   
 

Fun and Fellowship abound...

BJ's was the food sponsor at The Mad Hatter Tea Party and will again be a sponsor for Monte Carlo Night.  We presented them with a nice plaque thanking them for their service...and it was a nice November social outing for the club.

Stay tuned for other social outings...bonding creates a more lasting friendship and service with friends is even better. #kidsneedkiwanis
