Lt. Gov Trevor thanked everyone who helped him throughout the last year and presented Tim Horton coffee cards. The Presidents in turn congratulated him on a successful year.
This meeting featured outgoing Lieutenant Governor Trevor passing the Zone reigns on to incoming Lieutenant Governor Peggy Dick.
Opt Peggy identified that we need Membership Maintenance and handed out M&M’s candy to promote this.
Opt Peggy also introduced the concept of getting all the Zone clubs to participate in a Zone community service project and write a multi-club CPA. She introduced the “Give Care to Kids” project which is seeking to replace worn-out toys and items in both of the kids playrooms at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.
A delicious lunch of soup and sandwiches followed and our traditional horse shoe toss followed.
