Speaker’s Corner!

We were very pleased to hear from two mem­bers of our Eye of Tiger e‑Club.

Brit­tany Love is from the Car­oli­nas, Kiwa­nis Uptown Club. Her expe­ri­ences includ­ed being a youth group leader at school, a for­mer SLP mem­ber, a teacher and a grad­u­ate from law school. In addi­tion, Brit­tany jumped at the chance to be a par­tic­i­pant in the Eye of the Tiger blitz in Indianapolis.

Brit­tany owns Love Law where she applies her skills in the non-prof­it sec­tor. She is a vol­un­teer with the Car­oli­nas Dis­trict of Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al on sev­er­al lev­els from Dis­trict Par­lia­men­tar­i­an to Youth Pro­tec­tion Chair. Through her involve­ment in mul­ti­ple com­mit­tees and projects, Brit­tany is a ded­i­cat­ed Kiwan­ian who is look­ing for­ward to being an active Eye of the Tiger club member.

Gary Levine, Past Pres­i­dent of our club, Past Pres­i­dent of the Kiwa­nis Club of Owen Sound, Past Gov­er­nor of East­ern Cana­da and the Caribbean Dis­trict, Past Inter­na­tion­al Trustee, Min­neso­ta born, liv­ing in Cana­da and Flori­da, chose to share some tales from his check­ered past.

His sto­ries includ­ed the fal­la­cy of putting a pis­tol wrapped in cin­na­mon buns in your car­ry on bag, the dan­gers of try­ing to teach your wife a shop­ping les­son, to crash land­ings as a super hero. He shared the life lessons he learned that helped him as a club open­er. He learned to keep try­ing despite fail­ing at times. We all make mis­takes along the way and that’s okay… so long as we learn from them.

Speak­ing of the past, Gary and his wife Julia are pic­tured set­ting out to take part in Her­itage Day cel­e­bra­tions in their home town, many, many, many years ago!
