Weekly Meeting - Bill Siekierski - Why I became a Canadian

Larry Haffner introduced Bill Siekierski starting with his education then on to his football career where he weighed in at 275 while with the Ottawa Rough Riders. Bill gave a very moving speech firstly congratulating his son for standing by his beliefs as a Canadian. Bill spoke of all the goodness in his life and for being here today. He thanked his parents for their support, his good friends in Kiwanis for their loyalty, and special others in his life who have made him proud to be Canadian. A good friend to many of us, and a perfect example of a good Kiwanian, Bill's speech was followed by a standing ovation.
