It is Kiwanis’ mission to empower communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children and we are grateful to be surrounded by a circle of friends who have tirelessly worked to support and further this same goal. The Circle of Friends award was established by our club to recognize a community leader whose spirit and work in the community has embodied the objectives of Kiwanis.
This year the club is humbled to recognize Tommy Tommaseo (of Rocky & Carlo’s Restaurant & Bar) as the 2021 “Circle of Friends” Award recipient.
Kiwanis President, Jeff Southerland, commented, “Mr. Tommaseo has helped Kiwanis in many ways. Thank You for all that you do for St. Bernard Parish and it’s Volunteer Organizations.”
Tommaseo has quietly, consistently and selflessly supported the St. Bernard Parish community for a great number of years and it is the club’s honor to recognize him for his service and thank him for being a part of Kiwanis’ Circle of Friends.
The objectives of Kiwanis are:
* To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
* To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
* To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
* To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
* To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.
* To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.
