House of Representatives as a time for rededication of the individual and
the nation to God. Similar events have been held in nearly every state
and in numerous cities throughout America.
Dr. Richard Kasper, leader of Master's Men, welcomed guests and gave
the invocation. Introductions were made by Rotarian Gordon Bowers, a
captain with the Burbank Police Department. The flag salute was led by
James Lee, president of Burbank Kiwanis Key Club, and by Kimberly Davy,
president of Burbank Rotary Interact Club.
Outstanding special music was presented by the award-winning In Sync
choral group from Burbank High School. Under the direction of Michelle
Jensen, this group of nearly 40 voices performed three selections --
"Didn't My Lord Deliver," "A Few More" and "Mary Did You Know."
Burbank Mayor Bill Wiggins presented a plaque from the city giving
special recognition to Mayor's Prayer Breakfast Chairman Glenn Taylor for
his many years of dedicated service. Committee members included J. H.
"Harry" Woods, chairman emeritus, Richard Kasper, Burbank Master's Men,
Gordon A. Bowers, Rotary Club of Burbank, Herbert Vincent, Kiwanis Noon
Club, Suzanne Cox, Sunrise Rotary Club, Tom Arnott, Magnolia Park
Optimist Club and Harvey Wise, Burbank Master's Men.
The featured speaker for the morning was Kevin Malone, vice president
and general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. My special thanks to
Eugene and June Forrest and Joe and Paul Nelson, who made me feel so very
welcome at their table. I will look forward to attending this event again
It was also my pleasure, along with my friend and fellow Foothill
Civitan Club member Jenice McGlynn, to attend the Burbank Kiwanis for Fun
and Burbank Temporary Aid Center's first annual Car Show Sunday.
This event was very well attended and supported by the community and
was everything it was publicized to be. Great location, great cars,
music, pancake breakfast, hamburgers and hot dogs, drawings, baked goods
sale and more than 70 arts and crafts booths. Great fun! Great job!
