District 2 goes back to back

Every year national convention ends with the President’s Gala and the presentation of two very important awards.   This year was no different and when District 2 was named Decew Phee District of the Year for the second consecutive year, the 33 Kinsmen, Kinettes and Kin that were in attendance from the district erupted in celebration.

“I am equally humbled and honored to receive the Decew Phee Outstanding District Award.  We as a group worked very hard to create an atmosphere that our 44 clubs and 552 members could benefit from.” Beams Past Governor John DeBeer. “Thank you to Kin Canada for this award and we are pleased to share with District 4”

To put the award in perspective, it is chosen by the Executive Director of Kin Canada after he goes through a rigorous selection process.  The fact that District 2 had positive membership growth, one of only 3 districts to accomplish that, all 44 clubs reporting their service hours and dollars, chartered a new club, and overall had a very positive year, made the district stand out.

We would also like to congratulate District 4 (Alberta) who shared the award with District 2. They had a phenomenal year and outstanding leadership. The other major award presented was the Lifetime Achievement award to Pat Fleming of District 7 (Atlantic Canada).
