President’s Rose - President Peter welcomed Gary Flockton to the podium and thanked him for his continued efforts as Co-Chair of the Bed Race Committee for the second consecutive year. Because of his past efforts we secured the company Bedzzz as the Title Sponsor of the Bed Race and they have committed to support the Race for the next 3 years.
He also got his employer, Allstream, to be our Presenting Sponsor, and they provide excellent support to our club. Obtaining a sponsor for these events, not only adds financially to our bottom line, but provides a relationship that helps to promote Kiwanis in our community.
Gary also volunteers with our hands-on cleanup project at Camp Smitty the Ottawa Boys and Girls Club’s Camp, and, he brings his own crew from Allstream. He coordinated our Kiwanis Family Christmas party for the past 4 years and arranges the entertainment.
And most recently, Gary was a great leader for this year’s Bedzzz Race, and leading a strong committee they ensured everything went smoothly, while helping to raise $32,000 for the club’s community services account. Thank you Gary!
