The Dwight Winter Carnival Returns February 24-25, 2023!

For 51 years, the Dwight Winter Carnival has been delighting young and old with mid-winter festivities celebrating the frostiest of seasons.

The excitement begins Friday night with Kids’ Kapers. Bring your young ones to the Dwight Community Centre from 5:30pm to 7:30pm for games, snacks, prizes, and a whole lot of fun! Everyone leaves a winner!

With your appetite whetted for more, plan to spend Saturday exploring the many carnival activities, from delicious dishes to wildlife encounters.

Kick the day off with a tasty pancake breakfast hosted by the Dwight Lions Club. Get your grub by donation starting at 8:30am. But be sure to save room for donut decorating, hosted by Erika’s Bakery, and the Kiwanis BBQ lunch later in the day!

If you love animals, you won’t want to miss the Speaking of Wildlife interactive presentations at 10am and 1pm in the community centre, featuring native Ontario wildlife. Or stop by any time to chat with the interpreters and get an up-close look at their wildlife ambassadors. Outside, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, or visit with a herd of charming goats.

So many things to be thankful for at last night's member meeting....  from Janice's handmade Valentine's cards/bookmarks and treats and Helen's maple candies, to the meal prepared by the Ladies of the UCW at Trinity United Church.  Nancy and Shirley, we look forward to many more meals in the future.
 
With all the extra hands setting up and taking down the tables and chairs, your time is appreciated as well.
 
Much appreciation to Member Allison Dalziel, for sharing her experiences dancing with the children of Circles Muskoka.  It was so much fun listening to your infectious nature as you described the children's experiences playing dress-up with your dance shoes, freeze dance, and so much more.  We are so pleased that you are able to share your skills as a dance teacher with others.  Thank you Director Janice Larade, for preparing the thank you gift.

Every year, the Salvation Army Huntsville, takes applications from various individuals and families who are in need of assistance during the Christmas season. In response to their need various persons, organization and companies supply successful applicants with a food hamper. Applicants who have children also receive a toy hamper for each child up to the age of 17 years of age.  The Kiwanis Club of Huntsville Muskoka has once again supported the 'Adopt-a-Family' Campaign and provided some items to make their holiday a little less stressful.

A great group of people, with huge hearts, letting off some stress. Thank you to all for participating in all the silliness of the evening.

2022-10-21 Ted Barris Lunch & Learn

Another successful event with Ted Barris!  The session started with a lovely homemade luncheon by the Ladies Auxiliary at the Royal Canadian Legion 232 - Huntsville.  If anyone left hungry, it would have been their own fault.  
 
Post feast, Ted captivated the audience with a discussion on his new book Battle of the Atlantic: Gauntlet to Victory
Nothing less than engaging and passionate, Ted held the audience’s attention, while he took his listeners on a trip through Canada’s participation in the Battle of the Atlantic. 
 
Upon conclusion, Ted signed books for those that desired. An educated audience left wanting to hear more.  If Kiwanis is able to recruit Ted for another session in the future, we will ensure everyone is aware.

2022-09-19 Golf Tournament Cancelled 😢

Friends of Kiwanis;
It is not the news we wanted to share but it is what we need to share, the 4th Annual Kiwanis Golf Tournament of September 19th at North Granite Ridge has been cancelled for this year. 
There are certainly disappointed people, however the economic climate made it challenging for us and out of respect for our regular sponsors and golfers we were sensitive to their issues with staffing and simply trying to stay afloat, even though some would have made the effort to help, the numbers were not going to make it a meaningful tournament for the course as well as our golfers. We'll be back next year and trust that the economic climate will be in a better place as well. As for this event, those who have actually made payments, your funds will be returned, with our thanks.

Tentatively save the date of Monday, September 18, 2023 for the return of Kiwanis to beautiful North Granite Ridge G.C.
