Kiwanis welcomes daughter from Spain

Kiwanis Club of Tehachapi

 

Lyndsey Wolfe is surrounded by her parents George and Elizabeth Wolfe, Kiwanis members, who invited her to share her experience living in Spain with the Club.

Lyndsey Wolfe thought it would be fun to live in Spain for a year. Now it's ten years later and she still lives there. She comes home to Tehachapi twice a year to visit her parents, George and Elizabeth Wolfe. Both of them are Kiwanis members and they asked their daughter to tell the Club about her experiences living in Spain.

Lyndsey took a job as a nanny that first year and learned to speak Spanish fluently. Now she works teaching English to Spanish speaking adults and children. She pointed out that five different languages are spoken in Spain depending on the area of the country.

Lyndsey lives in a very old town on the outskirts of Madrid called Alcala de Henares. The University there was built in the 1400s and many of the structures are picturesque and very old.

However, most of the pictures Lyndsey showed were of food. She titled her talk "Gastronomy in Spain." She explained that various parts of the country each have their favorite dish for which they were known. Club members were thrilled when they were treated to real food – four different kinds of Spanish sweets.

Kiwanis is a service club that strives to improve the lives of children locally and throughout the world. They meet most Wednesdays at noon at the Tehachapi Police Station Community Room, 220 W. C St.

The club is in the midst of a membership drive. Anyone interested in joining or learning more about Kiwanis may call Ron at (661) 823-4848.
