Weekly Meeting - No meeting for the long weekend

No meeting this week, enjoy the long weekend.

Next Kiwanis Meeting

Thursday, July 10, 5:30pm, Family Night at Rapidz Ballpark (Note, replaces July 11h luncheon meeting) Supper 5:30 pm Game 7:05 pm Food & beverage voucher $10 each Game ticket $ 4 each Pre-paid members will automatically receive 2 food & beverage vouchers + 1 game ticket. For your guests, simply reserve the game ticket of $4.00, and they can purchase their food on-site off the menu. So far, about 70 members and their guests have reserved their tickets! We’ll meet in the picnic area. Parking $5 (payable at the booth upon arrival) President Bill will be throwing the opening pitch and the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa will be recognized for 90 years of service to the community. It is a family activity and we would like to see many Kiwanians and their families in attendance. If people only want tickets and no food vouchers, that is perfectly acceptable. We want a crowd to cheer President Bill and the Rapidz!

A Kiwanis fundraising opportunity

‘Classic Amusements’ is offering to put on a “Carnival Fun For the Whole Family” with a percentage of the proceeds going to the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, and is looking for a location. We are in the process of trying to find a shopping centre parking lot or suitable large outside location for this event, as we are only responsible for finding the location. The proposed date is the first weekend in August. If you have any suggestions, please contact the Kiwanis office at 613-233-1900 As Soon As Possible. 2008-09
