JUNE 2020 AGM


APPROXIMATELY 60 KNC MEMBERS WERE VIRTUALLY ON HAND FOR THE FIRST ONLINE VERSION OF THE KNC AGM IN ITS 51 YEAR HISTORY.   THE OUTGOING BOARD WAS THANKED AND THE NEW BOARD INTRODUCED.   PLANS ARE NOW UNDERWAY FOR WHAT LIES AHEAD.

ALTHOUGH MOST  KNC EVENTS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE,  SEVERAL ACTIVITIES HAVE RESUMED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE GUIDELINES ESTABLISHED BY LOCAL, PROVINCIAL AND FEDERAL HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS.  WE ARE HOPEFUL MORE OF KNC'S ACTIVITIES WILL BE ABLE TO RESUME THIS FALL UNDER THOSE SAME GUIDELINES.   




Normally, the KNC meets on the third Thursday evening of every month, from September through June.

The meetings are a chance to mix and mingle, to learn about our many activities, and to profit from our fascinating speakers series. 

The meetings take place at First Lutheran Church and School, 4091 Lakeshore Road.  Meetings are an opportunity to find out more about the various activities offered by the club.

Doors open at 6:45 p.m., giving members a half hour to chat and sign up for activities. The regular business of the meeting, including the featured guest speaker, gets underway at 7:15. 

If you have experienced difficulty joining or renewing your membership through the new online payment system, you will find volunteers at the meetings to help you.  Please note that the KNC does not accept cheques sent in the mail, so if you are unable to use the online payment system, please bring a cheque to the next monthly meeting.
