Dear Civitans,

From Saturday, April 23, 2016...

Here is an example of taking a Saturday to spend quality time with other Civitans from the Civitan Cardinal District at Echoing Hills Campground, These grounds have 75 residents with disabilities year round living there and during the summer, each week 66 campers of all ages.

The video is an excellent opportunity to learn more about this facility and programs in many other locations. Please take the time to watch the short presentation and photos of your officers and club members working on a very satisfying program.

Elmer Querubin

It is a genuine hope and passion of mine to see people achieve the results they have dreamed of. I specialized in three areas of growth: Leadership Development, Career Enhancement, and Personal Development. I believe that I am uniquely prepared to train, speak, and coach in these areas because of four equally important areas.

1. My Leadership and Personal Experiences - I have been involved in leadership and career changes all of my life. I was hired by Word International Ministries, Seattle to be the Youth Leader in 2000. Under my leadership, the youth group doubled in size. I help create and established the youth band and a youth drama group. In 2006, while in the military I founded the Airmen's Council for the 88th Medical Laboratory Flight. In 2008, I was the Leadership Leader for Fusion, a subset of the 88th Chaplaincy Young Adult's ministry. Currently, I am the president and CEO of the a company I started called Cherub Defense, LLC.

2. My Certifications and Endorsements - I am certified by two world renowned endorsement and certification programs. The John Maxwell Team headed by Leadership Guru Dr. John C Maxwell and the 48 Days Company which is founded by Author, Speaker, and Executive Coach Dan Miller.

3. My Teaching and Training Experiences - I have been teaching, training, and speaking since 1999. I have taught spiritual classes which included biblical studies to marriage enrichment courses to military and civilian personnel. I have taught and spoke on financial courses through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. I still continue to teach on personal development, leadership, and career seminars today.

4. My continuing passion to see people grow - It's the truth. I want to see people walk in a direction towards their potential and live a life that is full of joy, purpose, and dreams. I find joy when people are living out their purpose and I enjoy the process of helping them find it, reach it, and achieve it.
