Kiwanis office Rapidz Ball Game Kiwanis evening - “My Arm Feels Real Good - I Think I Can Help This Ball Team”! It was a lovely evening with approximately 70 Kiwanians, family and friends. It was great to see many generations enjoying an event together. We had Mike Moore with his grandchildren, Peter Patafie trying to vault over the row of seats – all in all a great night – our team lost 10-8, but everyone agreed it was fabulous value for the money and an excellent bonding experience”. President Bill

Community Services Committee – Annual Seniors’ Tea

Please note that at the Board of Directors retreat, it was agreed that our club projects would focus more on ‘young children and youth’, the mandate of Kiwanis International. Since the Tea is not impacting our youth directly or through their involvement, the project does not meet our focus. The tea would qualify if we could utilize our youth component; however it is difficult to organize our youth groups during the summer. Therefore, we will not be hosting the Annual Seniors’ Tea this year.

Need Your Help!! - A Kiwanis fundraising opportunity ‘Classic Amusements’ is offering to put on a “Carnival Fun For the Whole Family” with a percentage of the proceeds going to the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, and is looking for a location. We are in the process of trying to find a shopping centre parking lot or suitable large outside location for this event, as we are only responsible for finding the location. The proposed date is the first weekend in August. If you have any suggestions, please contact the Kiwanis office at 613-233-1900 As Soon As Possible.

Sympathy of the Club

Sympathy goes out to the family of Sidney Lithwick, who passed away on Sunday, July 6th in his 87th year. Father of one of our members, Howard Lithwick, Sid was a member of our Club since 1957 and was President in 1967. He was one of the pre-eminent architects in the city of Ottawa with his firm having designed the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, the Heart Institute at the Ottawa Civic Hospital, many of the schools for the Ottawa Board of Education, the Agudeth Israel and Beth Shalom Synagogues and the original Hillel Lodge. However, by his own admission, his number one priority was his everlasting and unqualified love for his wife, Ida and his family. Sid will be remembered fondly by his many Kiwanis friends. A wonderful man, Sid treated everyone with kindness and respect, and was loved by everyone who knew him. Services were held on Monday, July 7, and Shiva will be held at Hillel Lodge 2:00-4:30 and 7:00-9:00 pm until Friday

Happy Birthday to you! Jul 17 Alison Poirier, Jul 19 Kent MacDonald, Jul 21 Ian Hendry, Jul 23 David Daubney, Jul 24 Will Thompson and Ross McIntryre
