President’s Rose - Dawn Morewood

Dawn is an Investment Advisor and Vice-President of RBC Dominion Securities, and was introduced to our club by former member Murray McKeage in June 1999.

She subsequently joined the Duck Race Committee and the Programme Committee and eagerly accepted the job of organizing the Annual Family Party at the Chateau. Any member who has Chaired the Programme Committee appreciates the amount of work and time involved in organizing our Friday luncheons.

Dawn is a very enthusiastic member and throws herself into any project she takes on. She volunteers for all of our projects and offers her home for many of our events, and our committee meetings, and she is known as a terrific host.

She was on the Board as a Director for 4 years from 2004-05 to 2008-09 and was an active participant. She contributes to all clubs projects and fundraisers on a regular basis, and also provides sponsorship from her employers. She is also past volunteer coordinator of our TV Bingo and other hands-on projects.

She was Chair of Membership Committee in 2010 and continues to keep an eye out for prospective members. She has personally shared her love of Kiwanis with 7 members who are now all active members of our club – Cathy James-Zelney, Tom Burrow, Michelle Hutchinson, Deidre Powell, Patricia Creppin, Aaron McLennon-Sowchuk, and of course, her husband Arthur Morewood.

This year Dawn was elected to serve as a Director on the Board of Directors and is responsible for liaising with our sponsored youth groups including Key Club, Circle K, and Cadets. This is a busy job and Dawn does it always with sincere support for the objects of Kiwanis and the interest of our community.
