The Builder for March 21st

There were 28 Kiwanians present at our business luncheon meeting held at the Stonetree Golf and Fitness Club. Our next meeting will be held on April 4th which will deal with the election of a new officer to our Board.


Speaker's Corner!


K Paul Strimas spoke on behalf of K Bill Sornberger in reference to the purchase of a new fully equipped food trailer. K Bill was unable to be present at our luncheon meeting. As our Chief of Police, K Bill was absent to attend the funeral of a fallen officer.


K Paul presented the Board’s recommendation to purchase a new, fully equipped food concession trailer.  Each member was given a copy of the Whispering Pines’ minutes that made the recommendation to the Board and details of the trailer, with supporting pictures.


K Doug Cleverley spoke on behalf of the Fundraising Committee and President Gord added additional comments in support of the purchase. K Paul and President Gord answered the many questions that arose.


The motion to purchase was made by PP Linda Van Aalst and seconded by K Doug Cleverley: THAT the Kiwanis Club of Owen Sound accepts the recommendation of the Owen Sound Kiwanis Board to buy a food concession trailer, to be purchased from the Whispering Pines’ account.  The food trailer is intended to be used at Whispering Pines Campground and other special events, but only with trained volunteers (no paid wages).  The purchase price shall be up to a maximum of $80,000.00 which includes any signage needed to identify the trailer as a Kiwanis mobile kitchen.


The Motion carried with 22 in favour with 6 opposed.


A FINE TIME!
