made calls and visited prospective Kiwanians interested in establishing a NEW Kiwanis Club to be centered east of Sarasota near I-75.  The Tigers succeeded in securing 18 “YES” responses and on short notice they met Wednesday evening on the lanai of the Mad Fish Grill to organize. 
 
Members elected Michelle Rhea (a former Key Cluber), President.  Clark Lauren agreed to be the Club’s Secretary.  It was decided to be the "Sarasota East Kiwanis Club".  The full Board will be developed at the first scheduled Club Meeting, April 22, 2019 at 6:30 pm at The White Buffalo Saloon, 5377 McIntosh Rd, Sarasota, FL 34233.  The club has decided to meet twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month.
 
Doug Griffin and Clark Lauren will serve as "Mentors" for the Sarasota East Club.

When I first heard that the Key Club was going to do bath bombs on Monday I was immensely curious as to what they were and exactly how they were going to make them.  Then came the question about giving bombs to young children, but, of course, anything that gets them into a bath is probably a good thing, explosive or not.
 
What I learned from our Pine View Key Clubbers is that a bath bomb is loaded with Epsom salts and, "explodes" with fizzy fun when thrown in a bathtub.  (I was much relieved after hearing this explanation.)  So at last Monday's Key Club meeting, they mixed the ingredients, including citric acid and baking soda to make the fizz, and then molded them into balls and put them in plastic bags.  A messy but fun process.   
 
 
Here are two photos of Bath Bomb Day at Pine View.  The bath bombs were donated to Everyday Blessings foster care in Sarasota,
