Steve Ashman: Thanks to Kiwanis Club

September 21, 2013 

I wanted to take the opportunity to shine a light on one of the most valuable assets in our community. I am speaking of our local service clubs; Kiwanis, Rotary, Soroptimists, Lions and the like. Their members step up consistently and serve our community in so many invaluable ways, too often without acknowledgment or fanfare.

On behalf of our organization, Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, I would like to extend our deepest gratitude specifically to the Kiwanis Club of North Modesto. They have raised more than $220,000 for our program through their golf tournament over the past 10 years. Without this incredible group of men and women, we might have not survived many of the economic challenges many nonprofits face. Thank you to Kiwanis (and all of our exemplary community service organizations) for all you do for us and the people we serve.
