Happy June District One!

We are on the home stretch of our 2014-2015 Kin year and what an awesome year it has been! There have been so many incredible events, celebrations and memorable Kin moments - you should all be very proud of yourselves!

As we head into the summer, please remember to stay safe, have fun and if you are hosting an event, don't forget to contact the Back to the Future Executive. We would love to come out and offer support in any way we can.

To kick start the BTTF year, our Service and Membership Directors have been working with District Eight and have arranged for a FUN Kin Day at Wonderland on Saturday July 11th (with special pricing of course). Check out the poster below and contact Wendy Rolfe for your ticket.

A big thank you to the GO Team and Governors Joanne & Marty for everything they have done over this past year. We are looking forward to continuing on with initiatives that the GO Team implemented and try out some new ideas that the BTTF Team has.

To say we are excited for what the 2015-2016 Kin year brings is an understatement. Together we can go back to the future! #BTTF

Wow, what an awesome weekend in Windsor at the 2014 Fall Leadership Conference! Thank you to the Windsor Kin Family for hosting a very successful and fun weekend.

We hope you took the time to sit in on the great workshops provided. There was definitely no shortage of learning opportunities this weekend as we could work with Lee Burry via Skype, the Flamborough Kin Club, a photographer and so many more.

A huge congratulations to all three bids to host FLC 2015! And to the St. Thomas Kinsmen, can't wait to see what you have in store for us at Comic Kin.

Enjoy these next few months - I'm sure we will all be busy with Christmas parties, events and parades. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any ideas you may have for the next year, we are always looking for your input!

Ciao for now!

Wishing everyone in District 1 a very Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you take the time this weekend to spend with friends and family. If you are traveling anywhere, be safe and make sure to take in all the gorgeous fall colours!

Did you know... We are less than a month away until Fall Leadership Conference! We have our cowboy boots ready to go and are looking forward to an incredible weekend hosted by the Windsor Kin Family. There is a great line up of seminars to attend with a new spin on education. If you have any questions about FLC do not hesitate to contact us or a member of the GO Team for more information. FLC is such a great learning experience you don't want to miss it.

See y'all in a month!
