Kiwanis is entering into a closer relationship with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada and as such we are all being asked to come up with projects to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada in our communities. In this spirit we have expanded the annual KC of Ottawa Clean-up of Camp Smitty, which is a facility operated by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Ottawa, to include all Kiwanians, friends and family members in both Divisions 12 and 13. LG Glenn Pushman , Div 13 and myself are pleased to announce that the Camp Smitty Clean-up Day will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at Camp Smitty which is located on Mink Lake between Cobden and Eganville, Ontario.
All Kiwanians, friends and family members in Divisions 12 and 13 are invited to attend this clean-up and fun day. While the adults work, the kids who come along will be looked after by several Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa staff members who will have a program for them.
Everyone is to be at the camp no later than 9:00a.m. on Saturday, to start our volunteer work tasks. Everything should wrap-up by 5:00 pm and we will all depart for home. There are no plans for overnight stays. I have attached an information package containing the day's Itinerary, Directions to Camp Smitty and Other Details which should answer your questions. Please note Big Lunch will be provided at no cost but there will be a charge for beverages (other than water). Scott Bradford, who is the Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa and a Kiwanian, will be organizing the Work Tasks and Kids Program for this event. Work programs , suggestions will be provided at a later date.
By September 15th, I need from each club a list of names of those Kiwanians, friends and family members who will be attending this event . I would ask that either each Club President or each Club Secretary please provide me with this information. I need this information so we may organize the Work Tasks, Kids Program, Beverages and Lunch. We need your help. Come and Join us!
