I am a Palmerston & District Kinette. Donít ask me how long because frankly I donít know off the top of my head. I am blissfully married to Paul Schnarr a Listowel Kinsman and we have 2 boys age 22 and 12 who keep us hopping. I have packed a lot into my short Kinette career, mainly because of all the opportunities that I have had placed at my disposal. But also because of the great people I have met in this association that saw something in me and encouraged me to go for it. I could write a page and tell you about all of them but you would probably read the first line and then move on to something else.
I am not here to tell you about my awards or accomplishments. I am here to let you know that I am going to take on the role of Deputy Governor for Zone B with the same zest that I took on competing in any of the awards I have tried to win. Do I feel that I have the experience for the job? Possibly, will it matter? I donít think so. I am a dedicated person, and I think I can handle the job. I have mentors I can go to and there are great people on the District 1 BTTFPD team that I know I can count on for support or help. My work and family experience has helped me to learn how to deal with people, not to panic in sticky situations.
My full time job is a Site Supervisor for a security company. I have been in this field on and off since I was 18, so I have been at it for some 30+ years. I have worked my way up over the years on every site that I have worked, from a lonely little security guard to supervisor status. My current site I have been at for 10 years and the one before that was also 10+ years.
Donít get the idea that I think I am perfect; I am as far from it as you can get. There is one thing about me though that I will admit. I learn from my mistakes and try to never make them a second time. Life is a continual learning experience and I love to learn. I joined Kin to widen my friend circle, and to do some community service. Both of those things have been accomplished in astounding ways. I have met and can now call friends people that I never would have met if it was not for Kin. Each one of these people have helped me grow as a human being and given me gifts that they donít know they have given.
I look forward to the next 2 years and the great learning experience I am in for. Feel free to contact me at any time whether it is a question, to rant, to complain or seek advice. If I donít know the answer I will find it out and get it for you, because if I donít know the answer already it is something that I should know for future.
Yours in Kin,
