Weekly Meeting - University of Ottawa "Circle K"

Thank you to Vice-President Eddy Cook for Chairing a great meeting in his usual upbeat manner.

The M&M Show (Maurice and Marcia) was a good reminder of how we should remembers to show our love to each other on Valentine's Day.

The Executive of the University of Ottawa Circle K Club sure put on an enthusiastic presentation of the current activities of their Club. They explained where Circle K fits in the Kiwanis family and what their current activities are as well as their future plans.

Dr. Tofy Mussivand was very interesting with his Powerpoint presentation and speech on the new HeartSaver VADheart implant which is remote monitored and controlled, totally implantable, permanent, affordable and offers a better quality of life for recipients than previous artificial heart devices. Dr. Mussivand explained that diseases of the heart account for 44,000 deaths in Canada each year and 5,000,000 worldwide.
