Legion of Honour

The success of Kiwanis International is largely due to the earnest, effective, and active service of thousands of Kiwanians, many of whom attain more than 25 years of membership. The Legion of Honour of Kiwanis International was created to extend a token of appreciation to these Kiwanians, recognizing members with 25 or more years, in 5 year increments. We consider it a privilege that we recognize the following: Legion of Honour Head Table, Friday, September 21, 2007 Art Conrad 60 years Brian McGarry 40 years Barry Weatherdon Frank Hegyi 35 years Mark Max 35 years Ed Mulkins 25 years Lorne Usher 25 years All 32 former Legion of Honour Recipients, who have also been invited, will be recognized for their combined service.

Thanks Kiwanis!!!

On behalf of the students and teachers of Connaught Public School, I would like to thank the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa for your generous gift. The class library sets which you have made possible for us to purchase will enable our students to enjoy and improve their reading skills. As we all know, these skills are imperative to academic success and out students require a great deal of support. Good reading material for students is costly and thus often a challenge for us to acquire. We are most grateful for these particular sets of books as we begin the new school year. We plan to label each book with an acknowledgement to your Club. Once again, I would like to thank your organization for all that you do for the students at Connaught Public School. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated and makes a huge difference to the programs that we are able to provide for our children.

Sincerely Irene Cameron Principal
