As Kiwanians we are in the business of change- one child and one community at a time.
Week 2 as President, and this is my first official weekly recap- Since I missed last week so eloquently!
A reminder our new shirts are in, and they need to be paid for. Soup kitchen on the 8th of October was our annual Thanksgiving feast and we served 123 clients. Great work team! To our delight we learned that ORN applications for our members will be coming shortly, and there is a request for assistance from Dennis and Cec.
We also launched our new Instagram account on Tuesdaymorning to celebrate the International Day of the Girl, we will be aiming to share photos of what we do daily!
This week we had Restorative Justice visit. This is a program that has been mentioned a few times by other guest speakers, so it's nice to have it all come full circle. Restorative Justice has been established in Chilliwack since 1998, and they aim to "Repair the harm. Rebuild the relationship. Restore the community." They specialize in first-time offenders and youth, so it's nice to see a showcase of some of their programs.
We wrapped with Happy Bucks and sending Shirley continued strength and wishes as she heals over the next few weeks.
Thank you all for everything you do! See you soon!
