On April 22 the Oceanside Kiwanis Club had a Membership Drive Cocktail reception at Mio Posto restaurant in Oceanside. We had members send invitations, we posted it on Facebook and sent letters home to the parents of the kids involved in our Key Club, Builders Club and K-Kids Clubs.

Club President Thomas Cesiro III addressed the group and explained who we were and what we do in the Oceanside Community. Member and Lt. Gov. Nancy Baxter also spoke. The club's longest member (since 1968) Past president Fred Morse talked about his experiences, Past Lt. Gov. Tom Mollo talked about KPTC and conventions and finally one of our newest members and Oceanside School District Superintendent Dr. Phyllis Harrington talked about our relationship with the school district and our youth sponsor programs (1 Key Club, 1 Builders Club and 4 K-Kids Clubs).

With that we had 23 of our members attend and there were 22 guests. By the end of the night we had 9 completed applications and paid dues. We had another 10 people who attended inform us that they were interested in joining.
