The Builder for May 3rd
Eighteen Kiwanians were present at the Stone Tree luncheon. PE Gord Harris brought his guest Reg Martin while K Steve Sired hosted his grandson Justin Boné. Today's tardy trio receiving applause were K Sean McMurray, PP Don Sweatman and President Linda Van Aalst..
PP Peter Little introduced our guest speaker, Heather Greenaway (Past Kiwanian Arnold Kuhl's grand daughter) who is a registered massage therapist and Bowen Practitioner here in Owen Sound.
Heather has been doing massage for about 12 years and the Bowen Treatment about 3 years. The Bowen Treatment is hands on to specific points on the skin similar to Meridian and Acupuncture. The Bowen technique is very effective on such ailments as, but not limited to, arthritis, joint pain, muscle pain, stress, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, asthma and the nervous system.
Heather Greenaway graciously answered our many questions and was thanked by PP Bruce Price on behalf of the club.
A Fine Time
K Sean McMurray's wife borrowed PE Gord Harris’ truck and then lost the keys in an elevator shaft while in Toronto. K Sean drove down to Toronto and came to her rescue. He paid a toonie for his Otis elevator adventure.
PE Gord Harris paid a happy toonie because his daughter was not injured when she totaled PE Gord’s car. PE Gord paid the $20 he got on the 50/50 draw as his fine for the purchase of a new car.
K Marion Koepke paid a happy toonie for a trip to Ottawa representing the Owen Sound Police Services Board. K Marion noted that PG Gary Levine had also been there. P Linda assessed the fine. Book him Danno...
K Doug Cleverley paid a happy toonie as his daughter has now shed her braces and has straight teeth. That's something to chew on.
What's in a name? Fines. President Linda Van Aalst noticed that K Doug Cleverley and K Paul Strimas were badgeless and so that cost a toonie. PE eagle eyes Gord Harris then passed the chair to LGE Gail Norris because in P Linda's rush to get to the meeting President Linda was also without her name badge.
A Happy Bunch of Kiwanians!
Thanks to PG Gary Levine
