After concluding his ceremonial induction duties, Lt. Governor Gerry gave a brief address on the state of affairs in Division 20. Although we lost a couple of clubs over the past two or three years, Gerry is optimistic about the general “health” of the Division, including the prospects of forming a new club in Cape Breton. Gerry is about to begin the second year of his two year term as Lt. Governor and we wish him well.

The Kiwanis Dairy Bar in Victoria Park, Charlottetown is celebrating its 50th Year of Operations along with Charlottetown’s 150th Anniversary of Incorporation. Mayor Clifford Lee and Charlottetown Kiwanis Club President, Denis Dunne would like to invite residents and visitors to join them in the celebrations at Victoria Park, July 30 (rain date, July 31.)
The Dairy Bar has been a major fundraiser for the club, says Mr. Dunne, which has assisted the club in undertaking a number of projects within Victoria Park over the years. Examples include construction of the Kiwanis Little League Ball Diamond in 1984; sponsorship of the Kiwanis Dairy Bar International Ball Tournament for the last number of years; and replacement of the old wading pool in 2000 with a new state- of-the-art “splash pad” for children. The Dairy Bar also provides summer employment for up to six students. Through these projects and others, a special relationship has grown between the club and Victoria Park, a landmark in the city. “We are very proud of our relationship with the City of Charlottetown and Victoria Park”, says Mr. Dunne.

During the month of July, a number of activities and events are planned to help celebrate the Kiwanis Dairy Bar’s 50th Anniversary and 150th Anniversary of Charlottetown. The celebrations will begin with a visit to the Dairy Bar by the Mayor of Charlottetown, Clifford Lee, and the Lieutenant Governor of Kiwanis Division # 20, Gerry Lethbridge, on Friday, July 8, 2005 at 1:30 pm. On Saturday, July 30, 2005, between 1:00-4:00 p.m. Charlottetown’s 150th Anniversary “Ol’ Fashioned Fun Fair” will offer all visitors an action packed afternoon featuring various entertainment acts, a pet parade, barbecue with 150th anniversary cake and homemade lemonade, plus numerous children’s activities and balloons. Join Queen Charlotte and friends for tours of the grounds and observe the many new and antique City department vehicles and equipment on display.

The fun continues from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the Kiwanis Dairy Bar with 50th Anniversary specials, cupcakes and events to include an antique car show with a draw for two free tickets to the Rolling Stones concert in Moncton. Members of the Club will be on hand to help celebrate this special occasion.
