The Builder for February 21st
Kiwanian Susan Davey, our front desk Captain, assisted by PP John McLachlan greeted fifteen Kiwanians and three guests today. K James Culligan hosted Andy Fletch. We welcomed Owen Sound Golden K President Mel Prowd along with our guest speaker Peggy Moulaison. PG Gary Levine ably wielded the gavel on behalf of President Gord Harris as he is off sailing the ocean blue with PLG Linda Van Aalst, PP Kevin Dandeno and K Russ.
Pres. Mel brought greetings from the Golden K Club congratulating us on our community service and commitment to the Eliminate project. His club had welcomed P Gord Harris and LG Gail Norris not so long ago and K Mel took them up on their invitation to come to our Owen Sound meeting.
Peggy talked about her dream job, personally working to help others.
OSHaRE offers meals for approximately 50 people from Monday to Friday from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. utilizing a team of volunteers. OSHaRE hopes to foster caring relationships, community connections to assist those in need and to advocate for a more equitable social system.
After many questions about this wonderful new venture, Lieutenant Governor Gail Norris thanked our speaker and presented her with a Kiwanis pen.
A Fine Time!
DPP Bob Miller reported that it was minus 50 degrees at the peak of his ski trip while K Joanne Horton felt that when she was at Mount Tremblant the minus 23 degrees she encountered may have been balmy in comparison. K James Culligan was anxious to see St. Patrick's Day wishing it was March on his attendance slip...a slip indeed.
LG Gail put in a happy toonie when she learned that PP Elwood Moore is approaching 54 years in Kiwanis. PP Elwood brightened K Julia with a Sun Times picture of her Dad taken in 1956 that Elwood had saved for her. K Julia was pleased to keep the good news flowing in explaining that each Kiwanian will have saved 417 mothers and babies due to our Eliminate pledge.
K Susan Davey enjoyed her trip to Niagara Falls to see the Eagles Tribute Concert and was delighted with her visit to four wineries and a chocolate factory...and wine not!
