The Burbank Kiwanis For Fun held a dinner party on May 12 at Victorio’s Restaurant to celebrate the installation of new officers of the Kiwanis Aktion Club for the 2011-13 period.
Kiwanis Division 16 Lt. Gov. Gary Kessler installed the incoming officers: President Sandy Saenz, Vice President Chris Kulp, Secretary Ricky Hernandez and Treasurer Alberto Herrera. A recognition of the outgoing officers was held with outgoing President Karen Young giving a wonderful thank-you speech. She reminded everybody that they will be hosting a fashion show in August to benefit the “Appearance Room” at the Roy and Patricia Disney Cancer Center.
Saenz delivered her acceptance speech with great aplomb. She, like all the other members, has become used to speaking to large groups without blinking. The incoming officers received corsages, and they were very elegant. The Aktion Club’s membership is made up of individuals with developmental disabilities.
