Communications Director 2022 / 20223

Hi everyone, my name is Peggy Hefler. I joined the Kinette Club of Sackville in 1997 and in May 2016 was presented with my Life Membership Award. Over the past 25 years I have held almost every club executive position, including the office of Club President 5 times. At Zone level I have held the Zone B Deputy Governor position twice. I have been fortunate to be on several District teams. I have held the positions of District Membership Director (like today’s Club Support Officer), District Treasurer, District Service Director and District Governor.

In May 2016, I was honoured with my life membership in the Kinette Club of Sackville.

When I first joined Kin, I was quiet, shy and tended to blend in. I was happy being involved, but in the background. Over time I not only worked on projects but co-chaired and chaired projects ranging from caterings to wine tastings, dances to our Christmas Family, BBQs to conferences. Over the past 25 years I have been able to participate in numerous great projects, work with many great teams and great leaders.

Through my experiences in Kin, I not only became more confident and willing to step out of my comfort zone, but also gained valuable leadership skills that assisted in the growth and development in my personal career. Kin has not only given me the opportunity of personal growth, but also the ability to volunteer and help my community, and the opportunity to meet a variety of people and form lifelong friendships.

This year I will step out of my comfort zone yet again as your District Communications Officer. I am looking forward to learning new skills and improving the communication through the website and District Facebook Page. One goal I have this year is highlight each zone on our District Facebook Page and Website. To successfully showcase your zone and promote the great activities, events and projects you hold, I will work with your Zone Deputy Governors, and your clubs to obtain information, pictures etc.

If you have any suggestions as to what you would like to see for content, please reach out to me.

Yours in Kin

Peggy Hefler
