Governor's Message

A special thank you to the members of the London Middlesex Civitan Club for hosting the Region 5 convention. Although attendance was not great those attending had a marvellous time. The members of the London Middlesex Civitan Club did a spectacular job with the goodie bags, the games, and the hospitality suite. The CDW meeting was very informative and it was a nice change having the members from the East join our meeting. It was certainly a weekend full of entertainment and fellowship.

The Spring Convention will be held in Midland this year and I know the club is already hard at work trying to make it an enjoyable time for everyone. The theme will be "Proud Canadians" and fellowship will be a keen factor.

Both the London Middlesex Civitan Club and Midland Civitan Club have purchased the new pop-up banner from and both clubs are very pleased with the stand. They are lightweight and easy to assemble. If your club plans on purchasing this new banner please send your paid bill to Sue Gibson (District Treasurer) for reimbursement of both the stand and shipping costs.

We still do not have a Governor-Elect and someone needs to step up to the plate as I only plan on being Governor for one year. You are not alone when taking on the position of Governor or Governor-Elect as you have a team of board members backing you. Please consider putting your name forward and running for the position of Governor-Elect at the spring convention, as at that time we will also need people to step forward as we will need one Area Director and a Past Governor Director.

This year Judge Advocate Lyle will have his hands full as we have been mandated by the Government to upgrade the bylaws to meet the government requirements. We will also be looking at updating the CDW policies now that we are clubs at large and do not have to follow Civitan International policies.

Thanks to Norma Johnston, Marlyne Van Exan, and Sue Gibson as well as Cathy Dunn for a smooth transaction getting this year's Claxton cake into the warehouse with no problems.

Take Care
