Kanta was sponsored to our club by Past President Sam Bhargava in 2003. Sam had explained that as a volunteer she was expected to participate where possible, and he encouraged her to immediately become involved with whatever projects our club was working on. She immediately jumped in without hesitation.
When we need volunteers, she is right there… Kanta is always ready to assist. To give you an idea of her contribution to the club, in addition to attending every Friday luncheon, this year Kanta is a trustee of our Medical Foundation and is an active participant of the Program Committee and the Bon Appetit/Silent Auction Committee. She is also frequently at Interclubs with other Kiwanis clubs, she always assists at the Seniors Christmas Luncheon, volunteers at the Bedzzz Race at Dow’s Lake, and is the chief bell ringer at Camp Smitty….AND she is our Club photographer.
Kanta gives generously to many worthy causes in our community and to this club - we all remember her donation to the Medical Foundation that led to the Medical Physics scholarship fund at Carleton University and cost past President Bill Gosewitz his hair! She is a leader in this Club and a strong example of leadership for all of us to follow.
For your leadership Kanta, on behalf of the Board of Directors and the members of our club, it is my pleasure to present you with this week’s President’s Rose.
