When Kiwanis International CA-NEV-HA District-Division 3 held the Governor’s Official Visit, a highlight of the program was the awards ceremony to recognize members of each club who serve the community in multiple capacities.
At the event, the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada members Joe Radabaugh and Georgina Mueller were honored with the 2021-2022 Distinguished Service awards.
Attended by almost 100 guests, CAL-NEV-HA 2021-22 District Gov. Margo Dutton made the award presentations, with 2021-2022 Lt. Gov. Jose Sierra serving as master of ceremonies.
Radabaugh, Kiwanis Club of La Cañada Vice President, was acknowledged for his dedicated work in assisting Kiwanis Club of La Cañada President Terry Piasky with weekly programs focusing on essential topics for the club members.
In addition to lending his volunteer acumen to the Kiwanis and many other activities, he serves as the LCUSD Board of Education Vice President. As an avid sports fan, he has coached in the La Cañada Baseball Softball Association for the past nine years.
Mueller was recognized for helping the members’ meeting experience by overseeing weekly trivia games and prizes. She also served as an LCF Girl Scout Troop Leader. In 2020, Mueller was awarded the distinction of being Rookie of the Year.
She is a member of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Association, La Crescenta Chamber of Commerce, the Community Scholarship Foundation of La Cañada Flintridge, the LC Junior Women’s Club and the LCUSD PTA.
