at the Parade. Jeremiah says he got the “chairs” for the
Reviewing stand as an “in-kind” donation by Party Rentals. Super!
Entries continually coming in
4. Graffitti Parade last weekend was a huge success, along with
the Show itself. Significant sum to the community raised and
allocated by the North Modesto Kiwanis Club.
5. Our three new members may, if all goes well, be inducted at
next Tuesday’s (June 28th) general meeting at noon They are: 1)
Michael Houston, 2) Kevin Scott, and 3) Jeff Laugero.
Each will be encouraged to give us some information as to their family,
job, hometowns, personal interests, etc.. WELCOME to Kiwanis !
6. Jerry Jackman’s grand-daughter from the Czech Republic
is to visit him and Sandy here very soon. He is rightly proud. Should be
a great family time.
“newish” van needed new brakes, having had 18,000 miles on it since
fairly recently purchased by Jerry. He did the work himself, the
editor understands, taking about 7.5 hours for the total project.
7. Michael Houston, a Deputy Stanislaus District Attorney,
says the new courthouse is to open soon. The building is quite a walk
from the D.A.’s office, and they carry a number of cases back and forth
from court. Hopefully that will be addressed soon. But there are lots of
protective clear plastic partitions to protect the Judges, clerks,
jurors, attorneys, and others. It is being built “tech advanced” which
should speed-up proceedings and preparation, filing of documents,
etc. Parking still must apparently be addressed though.
8. Harold Petersen’s grandson graduated recently from High
School back-East. He is headed to Brown University in the Ivy
League. Congratulations to him and Harold!
9. Craig Haupt’s son’s wedding in Carson City was,
or will be, a happy affair. I’m sure the family’s Villa near-by will be
very useful. Best wishes to all, especially; to the couple. I’m sure all
have or will enjoyed the location, the family people being together,
food, and the ceremony! (somewhat confusing when it is to occur, but
Craig is working hard on it so it will to be great.)
10. Our President, the dentist, is ubiquitous and
peripatetic. He is practicing all over the county, subbing at various
offices in the county. His goal as provided by John (furnished by
Christine, his wife) is for new furniture, crystal, etc. No telling
which office on what day in what city he will show up at next. Makes me
tired to think of it all.
we have three new members to induct into the Club. You also will hear
about them and what is important to them. Welcome them!
