Newsletter of the Kiwanis Club of Bethesda, Maryland

Serving the Community Since 1945


    Meeting Date: May 9, 2013


A wonderful evening of food, fellowship and fun took place at The Hunter’s Inn in Potomac, Maryland. The occasion was a retirement party for our beloved Kiwanian and pastor of Christ Episcopal Church of Kensington, The Rev. Dr. Bill Hague, his wife, Jane, and their two sons, J. D. and Chris.  Next month they will be relocating to their home in Maine.


Thirty-six Kiwanians and guests enjoyed a delicious array of hors d’ouevres and wine prior to dinner served at 7:30 pm.


President Jeanne Smith called us together. Dr. James Leder led the Pledge of Allegiance. Roger Heymann led a robust singing of “God Bless America.”  The Prayer was offered by Shira Oler.  Tracy Miller gave the Quote of the Day:


“Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are. No matter who you are, how you are, what you do, you deserve to own your brilliance and light the world with the gift that is YOU.  If you’ve forgotten how amazing and incredible you really are, it’s time to remember.”
