**OUR 80TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR - CHARTERED DECEMBER 22,1917**

FRIDAY, October 3/97 -12:30 pm Chateau Laurier - Adam Room

We will be hearing from Baseball buff, Jim Shearon, Kanata based chronicler of Canadian baseball deeds, and former CFRA and CBO broadcaster. His topic will surround his most recent book “Canada’s Baseball Legends” and he will inform us on what the Canadian players are doing in the Majors today. We thought it would be fitting for everyone to wear their baseball caps or be fined appropriately

(As next week happens to be Rosh Hashanah, President Elect Ian Hendry will be Chairing the meeting, as President Marcia will be celebrating with her family. ) Please advise the Kiwanis office if you are bringing a guest.

On the Menu: Chicken Chasseur with Rice (or Fruit Plate, or Vegetarian....just ask the waiters when they come to your table)

Sept 26 meeting ...Past President Ron Wing highlighted some of the accomplishments that he guaranteed at the beginning of his year as President. He thanks all of the Board of Directors, the Committee Chair, Vice-Chairs and the members of the Committees, and all the members of the Club for making his year as President a memorable one. As Past President Herb Armstrong had said to Ron last fall, “ You are about to have the most delightful experience of your lifetime” How right he was! Past President Ron was given a standing ovation as he stepped away from the podium. This weekend, Ron and Marilyn will be travelling out to Vancouver Island to do some salmon fishing with golf planned for Vancouver and Calgary as a return to normal life in Ottawa!!

Lt. Governor Linda Clifford-Dashney pinned President Marcia Saipe and charged her and the new Board of Directors and Chairpersons with their responsibilities for 1997-98.

President Marcia promises to continue to lead our Club by following her Mission Statement on the next page. Marcia, we will all be behind you and your Board 100% in the coming year.

Congratulations ....... to President Marcia who received Past President Ron Wing’s last rose with best wishes for a great year ahead. ........to Greg Payne who won the raffle of a gift certificate to Kristy’s Restaurant donated by Walter Boyce and to Ken Birch who won the raffle of a bottle of Greek Brandy brought back by Jennifer Rae on her trip to Greece. Thank you both for donating, $132.00 was raised for our General Account.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The best kind of pride is that which compels a person to do her best work even when no one is looking.
