Good Day Fellow Kin District 7,
First let me introduce myself, my name is Patrick Bowers, and I am your Service Director and D7 Cystic Fibrosis Liaison for Kin year 2021-2022. I am genuinely grateful to be part of Governor Bill’s team this year.
I am originally from Windsor, Newfoundland but have lived throughout Canada and now living in Middle Sackville, NS. I have been a member of Kin/Sackville Kinsmen for 8 years. I am retired from the Canadian Military, and am currently a federal public servant for the past 11 years.
I am married to my best friend, Wendy, who is a member of the Kinette Club of Sackville. We have one daughter, Megan and one granddaughter, Grace. Megan is married to Michael who is an RCMP officer and they are currently living in Twillingate, Newfoundland.
The past 15 months have been extremely trying for the clubs of District 7. Many clubs have had to overcome frequent obstacles and have been able to manage with public health restrictions. Others have not, with no meetings or fund raising. Good news is, cases are going down; vaccines are increasing and all four provinces are in their re-opening phases. This year will be our year to get out in our communities and do what we do best, make our Communities a better place for all by “Serving our Communities Greatest Need”. I am looking forward to reaching out to all clubs, and supporting you with your projects and any Service related concerns you may have.
I am prepared to support members with project resources, supporting your work with our national projects and partners, navigating service reporting, and sharing the inspiring work you do in your communities. Feel free to reach out to me at any time with any Service related questions or issues. If I do not know the answer, I will find the answer for you.
Fellow Kin, have a great successful year.
Patrick R Bowers
