Post Spring Convention 2019

Hello District 1!
We have attached the approved District 1 WAO Budget for your perusal options! Please have a read.

Stay tuned for your information packages in the mail if you did not pick them up at Convention. We hope to see lots of participation in the initiatives we introduced!

WAO Revised 2019-2020 Budget


The We Are One Team has been super busy preparing for the demands of the district - particularly the budget. It has taken a few hours of discussion, sweat, copious amounts of coffee and tea to get it right. We have attached it here for your viewing pleasure.

Also on our agenda - prepping for Spring Convention in Cambridge on May 31st. Our presentations will be showing you all what we hope to encourage and inspire in our District this upcoming Kin year. Stay tuned for some exciting contests!!

Winter 2019
Hey everyone!
Well, winter is finally here, hope you are keeping warm and safe. We attended FLC and Midterms and have been busy preparing for our second Governor training session in February. We are also prepping for the upcoming zone conferences and hope to see your lovely Kin faces at them. :)

If you are considering Kin life outside of your club, and you have already served as a President, why not look at becoming a Deputy Governor? We both served 2 years and they were a ton of fun!

We look forward to hearing about your clubs successes and concerns - seek us out!Keep safe,
VGs Francine and Scott

Early Fall 2018

Holy Cow, it seems that not 5 minutes ago, we stood dazed and amazed on the Spring Convention podium and now here we are, staring down the fall.

This summer saw us attending Port Dover Friday the 13th, Dresden’s Kinstock, Meaford Kin Kamp, Flesherton’s Rib fest and Lucknow Music in the Fields. Those events, and our home club projects kept our weekends filled! We were very happy to see and help our fellow Kin and will continue to attend as many events as our schedules allow.

September will see us attending 4 days of Governor training, for which we have been given a truckload of prep work and it is because of this and familial/work duties, we will not be able to attend Kin Kollege.

Proper education and training of our members is an integral tool in a club’s success. We are confident that Team Ohana has put extensive thought into ensuring that the job gets done.

One of our jobs as vice governor is to seek out direction from our district, and so please do not hesitate to contact either of us, either by email, phone, Facebook or pigeon! We welcome ALL questions and thoughts.

We wish you a fabulous fall and will see you at the Fall Leadership Conference in St. Thomas!

Yours in Kin,
Vice Governor Francine Burt
Vice Governor Scott Tapley


Where has the time gone?! It seems like only days ago that we were deciding to file paperwork to run for Vice Governors, and here we are already - just about to take office as your District Governors!

It's been a hectic few months - attending Governor training (the Fabulous February Fandango at Headquarters), writing resolutions, attending zone conferences, hosting District Leadership Seminar, prepping for Spring Convention, and creating our proposed budget.

Oh...the budget...

One of the joys of taking on something new is that it's not always done right the first time. Since first circulating our budget a few weeks ago, we have had a few errors and omissions pointed out that needed to be addressed. We appreciate the eagle eyes of experienced Kin members in the District that allowed us to address them ahead of convention, rather than finding out about them when we're standing at the mic in Welland.

Since the proposed budget was officially circulated 30 days before Convention, that is the one that we need to present. However, there are amendments that will need to be made so that it is more accurate. This information is available on the Conventions page, and also in the links below:

As always, if you have any questions about any of our plans, please don't hesitate to contact either of us directly. We'd love to hear from you.

Yours in Kin,
Vice Governors Karen & Dutch


Zone Conference season is quickly approaching, and with it the opportunity to select your deputy governor(s) for next year. To find out what you can expect as a DG with Team Ohana, click here: Team Ohana DG Expectations .

See you at Zone Conferences!

To the world’s most amazing family,
We wish a sparkling and cheerful Christmas blessed with beautiful moments of love, togetherness, and laughter.

We have seen so much spirit in the Association this year, from inter-club meetings, Christmas parades, and not to mention carpool karaoke! Kin has created a year-round season of giving for all of us and we see it everyday.

Our team has been working hard to get ready for next year's transition, with many topics that have been brought to our attention. We would like to hear from you with any ideas you may have - watch for another survey coming out soon. We are here to make the Association better and we can’t do it without you. Please feel free to contact us anytime by email (our contact information is under our picture -->).

Have a great holiday season!

Yours in Kin,
Karen and Dutch


We’re very excited to be part of the Building on the Basics team, and we’re looking forward to working with Governor Debbie and the rest of her council to achieve the goals that she has set for District 1.

*Proposed District One Operating Budget 2016 - 2017

My how time has flown!

We cannot believe that it's already mid January and we are working on the last half of the Kin year.

We have had a wonderful experience thus far being a part of the BTTF team, and are looking forward to Mid-Term meeting and Zone Conferences before we hit Fort Erie for the Annual District Convention.

With that being said, one of our tasks as Vice Governors is to review the house rules and bring forward any suggestions for change, otherwise known as "RESOLUTIONS" ..

We carefully went through every part and parcel and do have a number that will be coming to the floor. The majority are primarily house keeping while others will be cause for thought. We are attaching them here for you to review and hope that you feel comfortable approaching us with any clarifications and questions you may need.

*Resolutions to Annual General Meeting 2016

Please do know that we will be spending extensive time with all of the current BTTF Deputy Governors and Executive members at Mid Term Meeting January 29th - 31st and they will be prepared to answer your questions as well after that time. They will also be presented at your Zone Conferences.

We would like to publicly extend our thanks to Rule of Order Chair Colleen Wake for the time and attention she gave our resolutions so that they were all approved prior to coming to the floor. Not a simple task, and we are grateful.

Looking forward to seeing you on the Zone Conference Trail ...

Thank you to our sponsors!

Karen Coutts, Heatherhill Business Solutions Kim Dadswell, Dadswell Denture Clinic
