Oct 3 meeting ...Thank you to President-Elect Ian Hendry who Chaired a fine meeting today. Lorne Usher introduced Jim Shearon who admitted that he is a die-hard New York Yankee’s fan - wearing the jersey and all! Jim stated that he loves the Yankees for two reasons; they are the greatest team in baseball, ever, and they have 2 of the greatest Canadian players that ever played for the Yankees. He highlighted some of his personal experiences as well as the chronicles of baseball history including some of the tricks on the field, minor accidents and achievements of the players.

Congratulations .......to Stephen Smye who received the President’s Rose from Ian Hendry for all the personal time he puts into playing the piano for our Friday luncheons and for the Music Committee. ........to Jean Filion who won the raffle of a beautiful crystal pitcher donated by Chris Thomspon. Thank you for donating Chris,$126.00 was raised for our General Account.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It’s what you learn after you know it all that really counts.

SYMPATHY OF THE CLUB is extended to Pat and Peter Clark, in memory of their son, Brad, who passed away last Sunday, Sept 28, here in Ottawa. Funeral services were held on Thursday. Our thoughts are with the Clark family at this time.

SYMPATHY OF THE CLUB is also extended to the family of Mabel Taylor, who passed away last week, wife of the late Maxwell Taylor, a long-time member of our Club. Mrs. Taylor has generously left a bequest of $5,000 to our Club and $5,000 to the Kiwanis Medical Foundation.

AS WELL, Lola More died this week. She was the wife a long-time member, the late Bernard More, whom many of you may remember. No man or woman of the humblest sort can really be strong, gentle, pure and good without the world being better for it, without somebody being helped and comforted by the very existence of that goodness.

CARP FAIR Thank you to the following members for volunteering to work the booth at the Storybook Farm of the Carp Fair last weekend: Pierre Laurin, Doug Legere, Stephen Tanner, Derek Finley, Geoff Godding, William Thompson. Special Thanks to Bob Horlick and Jim Anderson for arranging the volunteers and for their extra special efforts at the Fair. Your assistance is appreciated.

YOUTH AND COMMUNITY SERVICES COMMITTEE We received a thank you note from Dr. Michael Derrick for the plaque presentation that Les Morin made to him at one of our recent luncheons. Dr. Derrick has been providing dental services to many of the children that our Youth & Community Services Committee receives requests from. In Dr. Derrick’s letter he states “ My small contribution has always been in the spirit of the Kiwanis tradition as I feel I owe something to the community which has been so generous to me. Thank you and keep up your great work “

A Special Mention ?!?!? A number of months ago, a plea was made by the Kiwanis office for all our members to check their coat pockets, briefcases or purses and return those little yellow tabs that you pick up when you register for lunch. There was even a prize offered to the member who returned the most. Well....one member returned 53 plastic tabs - some yellow, some blue and even some gray ones which haven’t been used for at least 5 years. Ian Hendry was pleased to ask Matt McGrath to come forward to accept a little token of our appreciation. (There are still many members who I’m sure still have some tabs.....so.......)
