I am Melissa Penner from the Mitchell & District Kinette Club, l am excited to be the Zone K Kinette DG this year 2017-2018. It is going to be a year of learning, growing and expanding. I have been a Kin member for 6-7 years. I have wanted to be on the Zone Team since day one. This year I am Zone K Kinette DG and Service Director. Why not go big! I have been a Palmerston & District Kinette, Listowel Kinette and now Mitchell & District Kinette. I have been a Service Director 3x, Vice-President x2, Membership x2, Awards X1, Registrar x1.
I have been a member of the HOPE (Huron, Oxford, and Perth Counties) Chapter a division of Cystic Fibrosis Canada for 6-7 years. My main reason for joining Kin in because my friends had a daughter born with Cystic Fibrosis and she just celebrated her 7th birthday in August. Her first three month were touch and go, they were about to be homeless and pretty much panhandled to get gas to go back and forth to London and they both lost their jobs to make sure their little girl was going to make it.
For five years I have been an active member of Toastmasters International with the Linguists of Listowel Toastmasters and received my Competent Communicator (CC) within 8 months. I have done various contests and was VP of Public Relations for 4 years. Now I am a member of Speak Stratford Toastmasters and I received my Competent Leadership (CL) this past June. I was Speak Stratford's Treasurer for 6 months and now I am the VP of Public Relations. A position l feel very comfortable doing.
I look forward to coming out to your meetings, events, and being an extra set of hands when you need it so you can be out socializing with your community. Helping Zone K have a very productive year in Back To The Basics 2017-2018 Team.
I am here today because I took a paralyzing stroke in 2000. The doctors said I would not live to see lunch. Little did they know I could hear them and prove every word they said wrong. I walked in a week and a half and talked in two weeks. Volunteering is my life!
💥Anything Is Possible!💥
Yours In Kin,
Zone K DG
