Governor's Message

November 2021


Fellow Civitans, I am happy to be back as Governor for Canadian District West. First and foremost I would like to thank past Governor Paul Scudds for staying on top of all the proposed changes that were brought by international. My year looks quite easy in comparison.

Your new board has a couple of things on our agenda this year, the main one being Membership, as everyone knows membership is down pretty much across the board in all service clubs and ours is no exception but so far as now, Canada has been doing a pretty good job of keeping our numbers, even through the pandemic. The board would like to see this trend continue and as we come out of these shutdowns hopefully we can gather up some steam and start regrowing to get people out to help the great projects our clubs do.

Snow Fun'd is going to play a bigger role this year with the board and we are hoping to get more members involved with this event because with the juniors partnering up with us we think it will be great for the district as a whole. The SNO FUN'D will be raising money for Water First which helps educate the Indigenous people on how to run their own water treatment plants and water management systems in their own community so they can have safe drinking water and keep their lakes and rivers healthy.

All in all, we are looking forward to opening up and getting out and maybe this will be the year we can even have a spring convention that the Dundas club has graciously offered to host for us. If you need anything from me or any members of the board please don't hesitate to email or call and we will see what we can do to help
