Weekly Meeting - Duck Race Kickoff Luncheon - Capone's East-side

President Ian thanked all the corporate sponsors, dealers and volunteers who make the Duck Race a success. It would never run so smoothly without them and we appreciate all their support. Karen Tataryn, Operations Director - Mental Health Patient Services at CHEO, spoke on how the Kiwanis Endowment Fund has helped so many families in times of misfortune and introduced three families who were recipients of funds. Past Lt. Governor Doug Legere and Jean Filion are trustees of the Fund and meet periodically with CHEO to assess individual requests. The fund which started in 1990, has 25 percent of the net profits of the Duck Race added to the capital portion of the fund each year.
