“I’m most proud of my perfect attendance over those 19 years,” said Ontis. “I added it up last year, and in all of my years in the Kiwanis family, I’ve attended over 2,200 meetings – and that doesn’t include visits to other clubs, or projects.”
Ontis will assume the presidency on Oct. 1. The Kiwanis administrative year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.
“I’m already working on my plans, and Kiwanis will rock this area. You’ll see our distinctive ‘K’ everywhere.”
The Brentwood Kiwanis Club meets Friday mornings at 7:30 at La Fuente Mexican Restaurant on First Street, next to The Press building. All are welcome to join the group for breakfast.
