The Somerville Kiwanis Club recently celebrated at its luncheon meeting on Thursday, December 4, 2014 the accomplishments of one of its veteran members President and CEO of the Winter Hill Bank, Sandra McGoldrick. The Club declared the meeting as “Sandra McGoldrick Red Jacket Day” in recognition of her service to the Somerville Kiwanis Club and the Somerville Community.
Sandra was presented a Kiwanis Red Jacket and a donation of $1,000 was made in her honor to the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute at Tufts New England Medical Center. Bob Nissenbaum, Secretary Emeritus Kiwanis Club of Somerville spoke at the luncheon meeting and stated, “Kiwanis Clubs all throughout New England show their support for KPTI by recognizing one or more of their members with a KPTI Red Jacket symbolizing high achievement and a very special thanks from the Kiwanis Club to that individual. Sandra is a woman of “firsts”. Sandra was the first woman to be Club President.” He went on to say, “You are kind as kind can be and as generous as I’ve ever seen. You are loyal to your friends, you are loyal to Somerville Kiwanis. You have a heart bigger than anyone. You are humble and give praise unfailingly to others. Sandra, on behalf of the Board of Directors, on behalf of all the members, we’re proud of you and we thank you so much for all your time, and for all your time and yes, for all your all time… for all your energy and for all your effort.”
