** Dec 12 Kiwanis International President Walter Sellers - in recognition of our Club’s 80th Anniversary of the Charter of our Club. Mark your calendars! KMED International - WHAT IS IT?? Kiwanis Medical Equipment Distribution. In 1986, Kiwanis service club members in Eastern Ontario decided they wanted to provide medical equipment to assist the needy in developing countries. After 18 months of discussion, KMED International was incorporated in January 1988. The Headquarters are in Richmond, Ontario, headed by President Ted Brown, and receives support from Kiwanis Clubs across Canada, the United States and most countries around the world. They currently operate with 11 Directors: KC of Ottawa (2) - Gerry Slobodian and Gus Barrieau, KC of Rideau (1), KC of Gouldbourn (3), KC of Manotick (3), KC of Westboro (1) and the Salvation Army (1). They operate on a purely voluntary basis - no one is paid and in fact many Directors not only donate their time, but also the use of their vehicles which amounts to a saving of approximately $3,500 a year. Over their 9 years of operation, they have received donations of a great deal of medical, dental and educational equipment which they have, in turn, passed to areas of need throughout the world. They have shipped to 30 countries, on 6 continents, equipment such as hospital beds and resuscitators, x-ray machines, Cobalt-Theraton units, laboratory and dental equipment, incubators and wheelchairs. They have also assisted in relief of disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and epidemics. Interested Kiwanians can be nominated by their Clubs to fill member vacancies as they occur. As of April 1/98 there will be positions available for replacement and they would welcome anyone who wishes to work with them, either on a specific project or on the Board for a two-year term. ALEX DAYTON BEQUEST As you are aware, our Club is in receipt of a bequest from the estate of Alex in the amount of $43,212.89 which has been deposited into our Community Services Account..

The Board of Directors would like to give our Club members an opportunity to provide suggestions for specific projects for which these funds could be used. Please send your suggestions to the Kiwanis office by Tuesday, September 30.

NEWS FLASH!! EXCITING NEW FUNDRAISER !! Mark your calendars for Monday, November 17/97, which is going to be an evening of fun at the Corel Centre with the Ottawa Senators Hockey Team. More information to follow.....
