Kiwanis gets new officers

By John Miller, 10/6/22 2:29 PM

PRESCOTT – There was a changing of the guard, so to speak, at the Prescott Kiwanis Club meeting Thursday at the Nevada County Library.

New officers were installed and those stepping down were recognized and thanked for their service. Kiwanis Lt. Gov. Albert Bradley did the honors, presenting Fred Harris with a pin as the outgoing president. He thanked the local Kiwanis board for its service and explained the board’s duties to the incoming members.

Bonnie Pruitt was installed as president, with Harris giving her a presidential pin, the gavel and a gift. President elect will be Vince Grimes, with Hyacinth Deon remaining as secretary and Barry Barber staying on as treasurer. Membership committee members were tabbed with Harris and Howard Austin, while the public relations committeee is Glenn Vasser and Charlotte Coleman. Coleman was also installed as the incoming Lt. Gov. at a meeting elsewhere.

The club voted to participate in Trick or Treat on Elm Street and spend up to $100 on candy. Harris and Judy Duke will man the club’s table. The club also voted to have a table at the upcoming OYEA banquet on Oct. 25 at the Prescott Junior High School cafeteria. The banquet starts at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 5:30.

In addition, the club will have a booth at Saturday’s Fall Festival.

“It’s been fun being president,” Harris said. “It’s been a great year.” Harris presented Bradley with a pen for his service as Lt. Gov.
