A very fun and successful 22nd annual Kiwanis Golf Tournament was held on March 31, with proceeds benefiting Camp Beausite Northwest. Organizing Kiwanians expressed their happiness and thanks to all of the sponsors and players. Claudia Edmondson, Camp Beausite Northwest executive director, was on hand to express her appreciation.
The 15th annual Thomas Majhan Kiwanis Teen Leaders Awards took place in March, this year honoring 10 amazing local teens for their outstanding leadership and community service.
Tickets are on sale for a few more days for the great Kiwanis “fun-raiser,” the 5th annual PT Kiwanis Rock and Roll Party, to take place from 6 to 10 p.m., April 7 at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge, 555 Otto St. Dig up those ’40s, ’50s and ’60s outfits (costumes are encouraged but optional) and get ready to tap your feet and fingers. Dance, listen, socialize and plan on having fun! Tickets, $15, are sold in advance only and are available from any Kiwanis member or by calling Dick and Gloria Atkins at 360-385-2585, or Don Fristoe at 360-301-5521. Ticket sales, a 50/50 raffle, dessert silent auction and a photo booth help support the Kiwanis Club. Pizza and snacks are offered this year by donation, and an East Coast swing dance lesson is given at 6 p.m. The band known as The Copycats and Friends features Joey Lazzaro on trumpet, Mark Holman on sax, Mark Atkins on drums, Dave Llewellin on bass, Dawn Martin on keyboard, Don Fristoe on guitar and Dick Atkins on guitar. The band members also belt out vocals for this nostalgic music event, and some guests present a few special numbers, including yours truly. Contests for best costume and best dance are to be awarded prizes. See
ptkiwanis.org for details.
