Goodbye Friend

Today, October 22nd, a day we hoped would never arrive, we said goodbye to Dorotha Gosling. We will miss your wit, your smile and your words of wisdom. It's always hard to say goodbye but for now we say goodbye dear friend, may we be guided by your generosity of time, love and desire to make the world a better place for those less fortunate, your spirit to always do the right thing and your search for the perfect bowl of green chile with just a little bit of meat and a little bit of beans" in it. 
Godspeed dear friend. Safe travels to your final resting place.

Dorotha Gosling


Dorotha Gosling

On Friday, October 10th, 2014 Dorotha Gosling, loved by family and friends, congressmen and mayors passed away at UNMH. 

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our beloved member Dorotha Gosling. We love you and you will be missed. It won't be the same without your smile and wit!

Dorotha was Super(wo)man defender of truth justice and the American Way. She was loved by all and you always knew where you stood with Dorotha. Always fair, honest & generous to a fault. Dorotha didn't have to wear a cape with an "S" on it, she lived it everyday.

Santa Fe has lost a hero.

Congratulations Incoming Officers and Directors


The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe congratulates the 2014-2015 incoming officers and directors. We wish them a successful year and offer our full support.

At the installation dinner on October 4, 2014 James Phelps was installed as President of the Club, Amado Abeyta became the Immediate Past President, Jacob S. Romero took office as President Elect and Matt Horowitz is the Club Vice President. Bob Clifford, John High, Mary Armijo y Clifford and James ‘Ted’ Bolleter continue to serve a two year term as Club Directors. Dorotha Gosling, Michele Daae and Roman Abeyta were installed to a two year term as Club Directors 2014-2016.

Also to be installed as Officers of The Santa Fe Downtown Kiwanis Foundation were Amado Abeyta as President, James Phelps as Vice President, Raymond G. Sandoval as Secretary and Amos Melendez as Treasurer. The Foundation is a charitable organization whose goal is to provide college scholarships to local graduating high school students and grants to non-profits who focus on the children of Santa Fe.  The Foundation also has an endowment that, hopefully, will someday generate income to fund the college scholarships allowing even more money to be given back to the community.

We congratulate Raymond G. Sandoval as Kiwanian of the year. This honor goes to the member who upholds the Objects of Kiwanis and serves as a role model to other members. Raymond’s tireless efforts on behalf of the Club and a successful presentation of Zozobra as the head of the Zozobra Committee is an inspiration to us all. Congratulations Raymond you inspire us all.

Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe!



      The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado.  Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.  The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International 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 goodwill.
