Division 8 Winter Newsletter 2018
A Message From Our Lieutenant Governor
Greetings Division 8,
It is hard to believe that we have already completed the first quarter of this Kiwanis year. I hope that all of you are feeling settled in, and that you are thoroughly enjoying your respective roles.
As your LG, it was a busy start to the year, visiting most clubs in our Division to lead in the Installations of Officers within the first 2 weeks of my term. It was a pleasure to visit your clubs, and to meet your members who work hard and inspire good work in your communities.
As was reported in our fall newsletter, we had the honour of hosting Governor Bobby Moo Young on his official visit from Montego Bay, Jamaica in October, 2017. Time with Bobby was fun and productive, spending time with members of the Kiwanis Clubs of Barrie, Owen Sound and the newly Chartered Kiwanis Club of Huntsville Muskoka.
To date, the highlight of the year was the addition of the new club to our Kiwanis family and celebrating the Charter of the Kiwanis Club of Huntsville Muskoka. The celebration took place at “The Mill on Main” in Huntsville on Saturday, November 25th. The evening included welcomes and warm wishes from members of our Division, but also from LG’s Terry and Allen from Divisions 9 & 10. We were also thrilled to be joined by Immediate Past Governor Phil Rossy and his wife, Dianne from Ottawa.
For more information on registration, and to book your room, please visit http://www.kiwanisecc.org/ecc-district-convention.
For more information about the International Convention, please visit http://www.kiwanis.org/convention/2018.
This will be a convention for the history books. It is important for clubs to select their two delegates to attend the convention, and work for our very own International Trustee, Gary Levine from the Kiwanis Club of Owen Sound on his campaign for the position of Kiwanis International Vice President.
I am certain that everyone in Division 8 will continue to support and encourage Gary throughout the election. We are rooting for you Gary, and we wish you all the best!
As we embark on the 2nd quarter, I look forward to visiting your clubs. I would ask that Club Presidents and Secretaries contact me with specific dates that you wish me to attend.
Thank you to everyone for making me feel welcome as your new LG in the first few months of my term.
I look forward to continuing to work alongside all of you as our year continues to unfold.
LG Steph Worthington
