The event was held at the Kiwanis/Shriners Bingo Country building on Riverside Drive in Charlottetown.Each year, it is a great pleasure for the Kiwanis Club members to host this event, in May they host a night of Bingo for the same group. On this occusion, with the help of members from the Key Club of Colonel Gray High School, that the Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown supports and M.C. Reg Gallant of North Shore Productions, that provided the music, everyone that attended the event had a wonderful time dancing the night away while enjoying lots of food and other light refreshments to fuel their energy. Later in the evening, the jolly fellow in the red suit made an appearance, much to the delight of everyone.This venture is a great example of a meaningful and sucessful “hands – on” community activity for the members of the Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown, they truely feel great satisfaction from hosting this annual event and look forward to it each year.
November 29, 2005 – Paulette Waddell(pictured right), Executive Director of Skills Canada PEI, spoke about their activities to promote awareness of the trades courses available in high schools and other secondary learning institutions across the Island. For the past few years, our club has helped sponsor Skills Canada PEI competitions at the Home Show in March. Paulette said that the Provincial competitions will be held in February next year and the winners will demonstrate their skills at the Home Show. The National competitions will be in Halifax, May 23-26. The website says that over the next two decades employers in Canada will find it difficult to hire and retain skilled workers. Their goal is to help Canada’s industries find well-trained, well-prepared young people to fill these positions. Visit the Skills Canada Website by clicking this link: http://www.skillscanada.com/en/
