Very often the work people do in our community is not recognized even by their own special groups. The West Glendale Gateway Kiwanis Club had its annual installation dinner at the Masonic Lodge on Oct. 17 and broke that rule. A very special part of the dinner was given to recognizing their members who went beyond the call of duty for the club.
Diego Munoz-Flores was given the award of Kiwanian of the Year for his efforts in guiding and working on so many Kiwanis projects here in Glendale. Longtime member of the Club, Carl Moseley was the recipient of the President’s Award for his work in effectively managing the club’s funds over the past several years. Both members were thanked many times during the evening for their service to our community.
Dave Fortune was installed as the new president of the club by Kiwanis District Officers, Lt. Gov. Harry Hull and Past Lt. Gov. Daryal Gant. Fortune then announced that the year of community support had already begun, and that the club had just sponsored a hole at the Putting Tournament at the Greens in Valencia to benefit the Crescenta Valley High School baseball team at its annual fundraiser.
