NOVEMBER IS KIWANIS FAMILY MONTH The first week of November is KEY Club Week: The first Key Club was formed in 1925 in Sacramento, CA with 11 charter members. Key Club was the idea of two Sacramento Kiwanis Club members, Albert C. Olney and Frank C. Vincent who were high school administrators. They approached their Kiwanis club with the idea of starting a junior service club in the high school, resembling Kiwanis, and have its own classifications based on school interests and hold luncheon meetings.

Welcome new members: Ellen Davis, Bettina DiSalvo, Antonio Fioritto, and Heather Kostka DCM: Our next DCM is scheduled for Saturday, November 12th. The Foundation meeting begins at 10:00 with the DCM immediately following at 11:00. This meeting is hosted by the Kiwanis Club of the Las Vegas

Strip. The location for the meeting is the PBS Facility at 3050 E. Flamingo Road. Directions are: NE corner of McLeod and Flamingo between Pecos and Eastern on the CCSD Virtual High School Campus. Traveling West on Flamingo, turn right into the entrance before the McLeod stoplight, make an immediate left and park anywhere. The entrance is at the SW corner of the building near the flagpoles. Traveling East on Flamingo go through the McLeod stoplight and immediately get into the left turn lane. This is a U-turn lane into the High School/PBS parking lot. The entrance to the building is locked. Someone will be assigned to provide access.

Remembering the Three Most Important Words: Perhaps you were expecting to find that the three most important words in any relationship are “I love you.” Those words are valuable, but even more important are the words, “I am sorry.” Those three words can do more for a relationship than any others. Whether it’s “I’m sorry I was so selfish, “I’m sorry I hurt your feelings,” “I’m sorry I forgot about our anniversary” or “I’m sorry I didn’t take out the trash,” saying you’re sorry communicates to your loved ones that you accept responsibility for your part of the relationship and that you take ownership for any transgression you bring to it.

I

And that last point is really the basis of all mature relationship – accepting responsibility for your own actions. Even the most childish and irresponsible people in the work can say “I love you” and mean it. But it takes a real adult to say “I am sorry.” (From the book Living the Boomer Life for Dummies)
