Cheryl Steensma has taken over as president of the Kiwanis club of Tracy.

She and other officers were installed Oct. 5 during a dinner at Ye Olde Dogs Steakhouse, at West 11th and B streets.

Steensma, a supervising nurse at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital, succeeds police Capt. John Espinoza as president.

Other new officers are Bob Haupt, secretary, and Rebecca Langdon, treasurer. Directors are Stan Stain, Howard Baker, Steve Fulkerson, Richard Hughes, Woody Souza, Lee Almquist, Nancy Young and Espinoza.

Don Sader, who was club treasurer for 19 years before moving to South Carolina, was given special recognition.

Named “Kiwanian of the Year” was Haupt, a club member for 52 years who has chaired the club-sponsored Junior Miss Pageant for four decades.

In addition to the Junior Miss Pageant, the 24-member service club also sponsors Key Clubs at Tracy, Kimball and Stein high schools and the D.A.R.E. drug and alcohol education program for elementary students.

The Kiwanis Club of Tracy meets at 7 a.m. Mondays at IHOP, 3120 Naglee Road, near the West Valley Mall.
