CEO Jeff York's passion for Farm Boy was impressive and entertaining as spoke of Value, the focus of their customer service and food.  They have no plans to change the size of their stores and believe in providing the best value in their stores - premium meat, fresh produce and dairy, local coffee.

Member spotlight - President Alison was pleased to recognize the following 2 members

Neil McDonald

Neil has been with our club since  1990 when he was sponsored by Distinguished Lt. Governor Ron Wing.   Our Club President in 2006-07, Neil continues to be a very active member of our club.  This is evident by the hours he puts into the community service work of our club, and our community, including working on our Direct Assistance Committee, manning the Salvation Army Kettles, and working alongside Ian Peddie to coordinate our Watch-It Shred-It Day in October, then the Kiwanis Christmas Food Basket Program in December.

Ian Peddie

Ian was introduced to our club in 1990 by former member Ted Small.  Always an active member of our club, Ian also spends many hours coordinating our Watch-It Shred-It Day in October, then continues to help  coordinate the Christmas Food Basket Program in December.  A quiet gentleman, Ian never likes to get any attention, so today I am finally pleased to recognize him for what he does for our Club and his Community.
