“One Can Make a Difference” – President’s Rose - Alison Poirier and Gary Flockton

As Co-Chairs of this year’s Kiwanis Bedzzz Race, for the 2nd consecutive year, Alison Poirier and Gary Flockton should both be walking proud. Their execution of the Bedzzz Race held Saturday, Feb 10th, once again fostered camaraderie amongst our members, as well as reinforcing our strong relationship with the sponsors and teams who participated in the Race. And even more important, they have both been with the club for less than 4 years. Alison was introduced to our club in 2003 by Steve Georgopoulos, and Gary was introduced to our Club in October 2004 by Steve Moore. With the very dedicated assistance of their small yet very strong committee, they were able to meet their Budget, with a Gross Revenue of over $42,000. The company BedZZZ was secured for the 2nd year as the Title Sponsor, and Gary also got his employer, Allstream, to be our Presenting Sponsor. The hours that were put in by the members of this committee were exemplary, and I’m sure they are all happy that the event is over. It was one of the coldest days so far this year but the sun was shining and everyone had a great time. Thanks Alison and Gary for helping to Make a Difference!
