Hello Fellow Kin,
My name is Bill McFadden, and, I am honoured and extremely excited to be your 2021 – 2022 District 7 Governor.
I am originally from Halifax, NS but have lived throughout Canada and now reside in Middle Sackville, NS. I have been a member of Kin/Sackville Kinsmen for 5 years. I am retired from the Royal Canadian Navy, after serving 24 years, and am currently a federal public servant for the past 13 years.
This year, as our District celebrates 85 years, it is going to be challenging. As we recover from this global pandemic, we are hopeful that we will soon be back out in the public, “Serving the Community’s Greatest Need”.
The past 15 months have been extremely difficult for the clubs of District 7. Many clubs have been able to pivot with public health restrictions. Unfortunately, some others have not, resulting in no meetings or fund raising. Cases are going down; vaccines are increasing and our provinces are in the middle of their re-opening phases. This gives us hope and we are very optimistic that this year will be our rebuilding year.
Our theme for this year will have three facets – Innovation, Inclusivity and Inspiration. There is no doubt this year will have its obstacles as we get back to our normal operations. Your District Team will be here to help with those challenges and of course to celebrate your successes.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to a member of the District Team. We cannot help if we do not know the issues you are experiencing. Our membership has many great thoughts and ideas and we need to hear them.
I hope I have the opportunity to visit many of your clubs or events this year.
Yours in Kin,
Governor – District 7
