Stories
On Saturday, September 10th the Mighty Siesta Key Kiwanis Club Habitat Crew arrived, mostly on-time, for the 7:30 am start at the Washington Court build just off 301 near MLK Way.  The crew that day was Steve Stoncipher, Joy Jones, Carolyn Jones-Penn and her friend Patti, Candy Anderson, Doug Griffin, and Mary Lynn Desjarlais.  Steve Chairs the Habitat Crew. 
 
This is the same Habitat Build that was the site of our “Kiwanis One Day of Service” in April.  It must be noted that Steve has personally logged more than 100 Habitat service hours there since April 2nd.
 
In April our crew was cutting boards and swinging hammers.  This time, the two Washington Court houses we had worked on were largely done except for floor tiles, electrical fixtures, and interior painting.  Steve assembled our Mighty Crew to paint the interior of one of the houses.  The crew arrived, received the pre-work briefing, general announcements, and the “how to paint like a pro” demonstration.  (Hey, we actually learned stuff.)  We then enthusiastically set to work with typical Kiwanian skill and had pretty much finished all but the front bedroom and the second coat on the garage by the 9:30 break. 
 
During the break we learned that the volunteers scheduled to paint the interior of the second house had not shown up.  So, what to do but to finish our assignment and pitch in on the second house.  Was the second house finished when we left?  NO, but when time ran out and clean up began, about 80% of the second house was painted, enough so other volunteers could easily finish during the following week.
  
A satisfactory result - mission accomplished and then some!
 

 
 
SLP Recognition and RPS Competition - Awesome
 

SLP Recognition and RPS Competition - Awesome (As Usual) -  The annual SLP Recognition with Rock-Paper-Scissors competition was held as schedule at Siesta Beach on May 20th.  The event was well attended by both students (representing SLP Clubs at Sarasota Middle, Pine View and Riverview High) and Kiwanians.  Brie Shannon (Pine View Faculty Advisor) and even a few parents added to the excitement as both participants and audience. 

Riverview participated this year for the first time.  Neil Delorenzo said 10 Riverview Key Clubbers would be there and 10 it was!  A representative of each club presented a brief overview of their club's projects during the school year.  (Riverview's presentation is shown in the photo to the right.)    

Drew Lowther was the event Chair.  He was assisted by Joe Sikora, Bill Irish, Clark Lauren, Matt Anderson, Candy Anderson, Neil Deloreno, and Carmen Ramsey.
