60th Anniversary Celebration

 

60 years and counting! In May 2018, the Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore Montreal celebrated it’s anniversary by hosting a gala evening commemorating its 60 years of service in our communities. 

Held at the prestigious Beaconsfield Golf Club, the evening gathered Kiwanians and many important members of the community together for an evening of dinner, dancing, and fun!

President Christian Aubert directed the evening’s proceedings and Immediate Past Governor Phil Rossy shared the podium for several items on the agenda, including the surprise induction of several new members to the club: Gilles Talbot, Sylvie DeRepentigny, and Jag Narasimhadevara. He also proudly introduced the recipients of the evening’s chief honour, calling long-standing members Jacques Dubuc and Peter Bedard to the stage to recognize their respective 60 and 55 years of service. Truly remarkable accomplishments!

The night would not be complete without a trip down memory lane, with a corner of the room dedicated to photos, news clippings and other artifacts from the club’s past. 

It truly was a night to remember.

The club wishes to thank the Beaconsfield Golf Club; musicians from Brian Harbec; special guests Phil Rossy (Immediate Past Governor), Roger Hamel (Lieutenant Governor), and Jacques Brault (Past Lieutenant Governor); and volunteers from AJOI, Logan di Giovanni and Patrick Levesque. 

Thank you as well to the organizing committee: Christian Aubert, Allan Battah, Peter Bedard, Andrew De Four, Ron Della Porta, Jacques Dubuc, George Frenette, Jag Narasimhadevara, Peter Nauth, Akilah Newton, Janice Schneider, Mike Somma, Leonard Stern and Gilles Talbot. 

And of course, a special thank you to all those who have supported, and continue to support our club, over the past 60 years. Over the years we have donated over $2,500,000 in support of children and community services - none of this would be possible without you.
