WELCOME BACK DISTRICT ONE!!
I hope that you've had a most wonderful summer (I won't say break because most clubs don't truly take down time) and during that time, you probably have run some pretty impressive projects both fundraising (CF / Community) and service. With that in mind, it would be a GREAT opportunity for you to get the jump on the awards programme for 2019-2020 and get your submissions done.
Do note that your clubs' copy of the D1 Awards Brochure will be given to your club representative at Club Leadership Seminar. Those that are not retrieved there, will be given to your Deputy Governor to deliver on his or her next visit.
I look forward to seeing you at CLS, as I'll be giving you a once over of the District Awards programme.
The Awards Brochures for 2019-2020 are now available
Please note that there have been changes made to the BOAKE and OUTSTANDING BOAKE awards as noted in the attached revised file:

CHANGES CHANGES CHANGES
Award submissions are just around the corner and Clubs need to be aware of the changes that National has made for two awards – the Founding Members Speaking Award and the Hal and Elspeth Rogers National Service Award.
At the District Level, we will be using the National Scoresheets for marking.
Please rip up, tear, shred, use as hamster cage material, the score sheets for these two awards (the M.Wilson/G& M Sinclair Service Award and Ferne Carter/Gord Harbinson Public Speaking Award ) from the District Award Package and use the links as below:
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
HOT OFF THE PRESSES
The 2016-2017 Awards Brochures are ready ... here is your electronic link
Just a few short notes from CLS
Who doesn’t like to win?
In reality though – we are already winners, We are Kin – we are helping our community, our neighbours, our friends, we are helping strangers through our blood donation program and our commitment to finding the cure for Cystic Fibrosis. We are winners – but wouldn’t you like a little recognition.
The Awards booklet can be found on the District Website for everyone to see, or if you need a hard copy, one was mailed to your President a few weeks ago.
Myrtle Wilson/G & M Sinclair Service Award
This is a Service Award – no $ should be raised for the project that has been entered
Examples – Christmas Tea, Splash Pad, Jungle Gyms, window washing
What is important about this award (and all the rest) is READ THE GUIDELINES -you can have the best story – but because you didn’t follow the guidelines – it will be rejected. There is a minimum and maximum number of words. You have to record the word count on the front of the document. Read the Guidelines.
Public Speaking Award
The marking scheme of this award will be changing slightly to align with the Toastmasters Guidelines – more information to come.
Read the Guidelines
- Does your Club produce a Bulletin
- Are you proud of them
- Have you entered them for an award – why not
- Guidelines – as stated before – follow them!
Public Relations/Photography Award
If you are doing events, why not take pictures! Keep track of the media attention you are getting and put it in a scrapbook and submit.
Maple Leaf Award of Distinction
Open to new members in their first 2 years of Kin – gives them a chance to be part of Kin, while learning the ropes.
For those of you that didn't attend Spring Convention, here's a message from incoming Awards Chair Lisa Burechails that you simply MUST read ....
Give me a B, Give me an O, Give me an A, Give me a K, Give me an E
What’ve we got? BOAKE!!!!
And for those that were at Spring Convention – you know what I am talking about!
And those that weren’t – shame on you – you missed a great convention, but to fill you in…..
The Boake Efficiency and the Outstanding Boake Efficiency Awards are awarded to Clubs that effectively meet the Zone, District and National requirements such as:
- Does your Club pay their National and District dues on time?
- Does your Club send in your National Insurance form to Headquarters by the deadline?
- What about the Annual Incorporation papers and the Annual Club Reporting form and your Corporation T2 form – all filed on time and properly?
- Are your financial statements audited or reviewed each year?
- Did you invite a member of your District Council to a meeting or function last year?
Well there you go – you have just earned the Boake Efficiency Award.
All you have to do is submit your paperwork by July 15 and your Club will be recognized with the Boake!
What about the Outstanding Boake Efficiency Award. Just 3 more requirements
- Did your Club attend Zone Conference,
- What about FLC
- Did your Club attend Spring Convention?
Congratulations, you just earned your Outstanding Boake Efficiency Award!
Now a couple of qualifications – in order to obtain your Outstanding Boake you have to have received your Boake award but remember how easy it was. And there is a deadline of July 15

MESSAGE FROM YOUR 2014-2015 AWARDS CHAIRS
Congratulations to all the individuals and clubs who picked up both National and District Awards at FLC – you are truly taking advantage of the personal growth opportunities that we all have available to us as members of Kin. Your fellow members could not be prouder of you.
A complete list of the winners has been published in the Resource Library on this website:
We want to remind you that the Kin year is already half over and we’re waiting to hear from you. Please start sending in those award submissions – we want to see your service projects, we want to read your bulletins and quills – we want to be kept busy!
If you have new members in your club, make sure you take the opportunity, at every meeting, to talk about the awards program and help them fill out the paperwork and keep track of their progress. Each one of us has the responsibility to help nurture newer members and the awards program is a great way to help them learn about Kin and become active, educated members with the potential to be our future leaders.
We are both very eager to hear from members with any questions and would be happy to come and speak at your club and zone events regarding the awards program. All you have to do is contact us and we’ll make it work.
Happy holidays to you all!
Yours in Kin,
Terri and Wendy
