Weekly Meeting - Remembrance Day Meeting - Father Joe LeClair

Father Joe LeClair stated that he always feels privileged to share in people’s lives, as he counsels high-risk youth, married couples, and others in his community. Being conditioned with love and righteousness, we are more able to fight for what is right, and have strength not to take flight in troubled times. Service Clubs like Kiwanis are an inspiration to everyone, as we are committed and loving to our fellow man, and will try to keep our world what it is supposed to be.

Thank you, Past President Lorne Smith, for sharing with us your poetry in memory of the war, and those you have personally lost. Your poetry always brings us close to the memory of the men and women who fought in the wars and who gave of themselves, for all of us.

Thank you to all War Veterans, including our own members… Matt McGrath, Harold Moore, George Perrin, and Lorne Smith. Thank you to George and Barb Perrin, for laying the wreath. Our Remembrance Day celebration wouldn’t be the same with the Cadets and we thank their Color Party for joining us at our 7:00 a.m Breakfast meeting.

President’s Thought for the Week: We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.

Raffle Prize – Congratulations to Guy Bourbonniere who won the raffle of 2 tickets to the NAC performance of the Donnelly’s – Sticks and Stones, donated by Harold Feder; and to Mark Max who won the raffle of 2 tickets to Dominic D’Arcy’s CD Release Party, donated by Dominic.
