*** THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF HELPING HANDS' *** - over $37,000 collected with more pledged! On OCTOBER 14, 2006, we will be celebrating the success that we have achieved during the 1st year of the “Helping Hands" initiative. The celebration will take place in Gatineau Park on Saturday, October 14th in the form of a Kiwanis Club of Ottawa walk in support of Helping Hands. We would like to thank all of this year’s supporters, and Kathleen Holst’s team, by participating in a WALK in their honour. We would like as many members as possible from our club, with their families, to join us for this day of celebration, fun, and fellowship. Arrangements will be made for a picnic after the walk, where we can discuss our ideas for next year’s Helping Hands program. If you want, you are also welcome to have the office fax you a pledge form, for your friends to sponsor your walk, to close out this year’s program. Pledges are not mandatory for your participation in the walk and picnic. It is much more important for you to attend the event. The format of the picnic is for each family to bring their own food and beverages. Please come out to, not only celebrate the past year, but to encourage Paul Drouin, our new CHAIR of the Helping Hands Committee, and his team for next year’s program, which will be so important to help fund our many initiatives.
