Wow, a big turnout of students and guests attended the Key Club Luncheon to hear Cheryl Jensen speak. A group of Key Clubbers also made their annual visit from Ogdensburg, NY, and were recognized with a plaque. Congratulations to Vanessa Khuong, Co-President of Lisgar High School Key Club, who was the lucky recipient of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa Annual Rick Barrigar $5,000.00 Citizenship Scholarship. Thank you to volunteer Val Wilkins who coordinated the agenda on behalf of the Key Clubs.
Walter Zeller Award – At the luncheon on May 8th, Past President Alan Smith was proud to recognize Past President Mike Lundy who was awarded as a Walter Zeller Fellow for his 37 years’ contribution to Kiwanis and his community. Mike was very instrumental in providing support for the start-up of the Youville Centre in 1987 to help single mothers to become self-sufficient and independent of the welfare system and to ensure a nurturing and developmental care for their children. Mike continues to support the Youville Centre and many of our other fundraising and community support projects. Congratulations Mike!
