Sep 12 meeting Conrad Winn explained that there are many different ways to take polls and he stressed that the results can often be misrepresentative depending upon who the poll was taken by, when it was taken, how and why. Nonetheless, big business can’t live without polls and they will always remain a necessity in many political studies. COMMEMORATIVE PLAQUE . As President Ron stated, “The 80th Anniversary of our Club is a rare opportunity to reflect on our rich traditon of service to the Ottawa Community”. One of these traditions is our weekly meetings at the Chateau Laurier which remained the cornerstone of our Club since 1917. To commemorate this celebration, a solid-cast bronze plaque measuring 18” x 22” was unveiled today by, President Ron Wing, Past President Allan Castledine and Pat Kelly, Manager of the Chateau Laurier. This plaque will be proudly displayed in the Chateau Laurier hallway close to the Adam Room. Be sure to take a look at it next week.

YOUTH & COMMUNITY - At our meeting of September 5, Chairman Les Morin was pleased to make a special plaque presentation to Dr. Michael Derrick who has lived the greater part of his life for his contribution to the Kiwanis Cub of Ottawa and the many under-privilieged children in this community. Dr. Derrick was a member of our club from 1954 to 1990 when he elected to resign due to business pressures in his dental profession. He did not lose contact with our club, however, as he continued to provide professional advice and dental services to the many children assigned to his care by our Youth and Community Services Committtee. He has since retired but not without providing us with the names of two other members in his profession who would continue the work that Dr. Derrick was so willing to do for so many years.
