Oct 31 meeting ...What a great show by the Company of Musical Theatre! It’s plain to see why these kids are the cast of West Side Story - that takes a lot of practice! Thank you to the producer, Donna Locke, for presenting this entertainment - we were proud to be your first audience. It was nice to meet our new EC&C District Governor, James Rowney and his wife Win, who were introduced by Lt. Governor Linda Clifford-Dashney, during their official visit to Ottawa. Governor Jim reiterated that Interclubbing is an important way for Kiwanis members to share ideas and to solve problems. Past Lt. Governor Marilyn Gowan-Fraser was pleased to present past IDD Committee Chair Ian Peddie with the 1st Mel Osbourne Award that our club has received in the past 5 years. Great job, Ian!

Congratulations .....to Father Bill More who was the recipient of the President’s Rose for his dedication to Kiwanis and its members and for his never-ending sense of humour. .....to Alan Smith who won the raffle prize of 2 tickets to an Ottawa Senators game with a Tippets Truck donated by Darrell Powell, to Mike Lundy who won the 2 tickets to WestSide Story donated by the producer Donna Locke and to one of our Nepean KeyClubbers, Liz Johnston who won the T-shirt and fanny pak donated by Peter Weltman.
