Civitan, Canadian District West
Governor's Message

By now you all should have the email from Communications "specialist" Lyle announcing that the latest issue of Beaver Tales is now online here on the website. Pat and Joyce have done an outstanding job at getting it put together and out very quickly after the announced deadline of March 1st.

The next issue due for June 1st will no doubt have highlights of our Spring Convention; you will find the registration form for Spring Convention and for the Region 5 in this current issue. Please look for it, fill it out and get it sent off to Treasurer Anita as soon as you can. I understand from Past Governor Norma that there will be awards presented, and I am sincerely hopeful that candidates will come forward for the open positions to be filled at the Spring Convention.

Coming up in the month of March, the International Director update meeting is scheduled for March 24th in Almonte. At this meeting, the Governors and Governor Elects of all three districts will be discussing and voting on our next Honourary Canadian, to be presented at the International Convention in Greenville, South Carolina, at the Canada Party. Nominations can be forwarded by any member and must come to me prior to March 15th; once again, my email is  There was no presentation last year in Reno. Let's see who we can think of that is deserving, and put their name in!

The third quarter billings from International and from District will be getting sent out early in April. As per International and District policy, no changes are allowed to the billings once received. District dues are billed according to the roster presented by International to our Treasurer. March 31st is the deadline for getting adds or deletes to International. The forms can be found on line at OR your club billing contact should have a supply of the forms.

Other notable dates this month: March 17 is not only St. Patrick's Day, it is also Civitan Founder's Day. March 21st is World Down Syndrome Awareness Day.
