Kiwanis Club of Martinez members shared cake and champagne in celebration of receiving its Kiwanis International Charter on April 15, 1926, making the local chapter 90 years old.

Speaker for the occasion was Justin Gomez of States Coffee & Mercantile, which roasts its own coffee beans and offers a selection of American made goods.

Presenting an informative program, Gomez displayed his expertise in answering the many additional questions from Kiwanis members. Gomez stated that States is one of three local coffee houses, noting that with Barrelista and Mountain Grounds, Martinez is a coffee aficionado’s destination.
