North Pinellas club news for April 17

The Clearwater Civitan Club welcomed new member David Seabrook into its ranks during an April 2 meeting at Heritage United Methodist Church in Clearwater.

Seabrook was presented with the Civitan Pin and received congratulations from members and guests, including Seabrook's wife, Melody, and Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos.

Later in the meeting, the mayor spoke about timely topics such as plans for Crest Lake Park and the possibility of a new aquarium where City Hall now stands. A question and answer period followed.

The Clearwater Civitan Club was honored two days later with a proclamation by the city of Clearwater designating April as "Civitan Awareness Month."

The club's civic activities include working the Clearwater Little League's Challenger League concession stand during the season; supporting the Homeless Emergency Project, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Clearwater Police Department; and volunteering at events at Coachman Park.

Every six weeks, two outstanding Safety Harbor Middle School students are recognized by the Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club with its Seahawk Award.

The latest recipients are Giovanie Adorno and Jessica Morey, who were chosen by teacher Vicky Kahler.

Kahler noted that beyond being fine students, both seventh-graders should be praised for their mature and decisive actions in dealing with a bullying situation by defusing a confrontation in the school with no adult supervision.

Safety Harbor Kiwanis president Pam Corbino presented the trophies.
