Weekly Meeting - Salvation Army Red Shield Kickoff, Colonel Glen Shepherd

Congratulations to the Kiwanis Club of Carleton who was the recipient of the No-Bell Award presented by the Salvation Army for the most money raised by a service club during the Salvation Army Kettles. The Carleton Club members raised $1,930 in the 2 days they stood outside and rang the bells for the Army.

Colonel Glen Shepherd, who has been associated with the Salvation Army since birth, thanked all community service groups for their contribution to providing a better life to those in need. He spoke on his work in Paris over the past 4 years, specifically the attention given to street people and the exploitation of young girls. The centre in Paris has volunteers with years of experience in providing housing workshops, medical care and counselling to these victims and offers them the fundamentals needed to improve their lives.

Thought for the week Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand.
