On Oct. 1, new leadership took the reins at the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club.
Danny Golom, left, became the new president of the club, taking over from past president Ed Tudisco, who had served at the helm since last October.
Tudisco formally turned over the gong and gavel that the president holds for his term at the beginning of the month.
As president, Tudisco led the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club through the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which struck only a month into his term. The service organization held fundraisers and collected relief supplies for storm victims.
Golom’s term will last through Sept. 30, 2014.
