Undies Drive Update!

Three Wise Kings - underwear kings that is

Members of the Kenmore Waterfront Activities Center as well as people from the community donated to the local Mary’s Place in its continued support of the greatly needed family shelter. The “Undies Drive” successfully provided new underwear for children, women and men currently living there. Thank you for giving and a special thank you to Nine Yards for being the designated drop off location.

KWAC’s Annual Meeting and Election

Dec. 6th
6:30 pm
Kenmore City Hall

The election of Officers and Directors of the KWAC Board for 2019 will take place at this meeting.  At this meeting, an open election will be held for the four Officer positions of the Board. You can view the job description of the four Officers here.

We encourage all KWAC members to consider serving as an Officer. It is vital to the city and growth of the KWAC and its clubs to have input and collaboration from a broad perspective.

Each paid KWAC member will be entitled to one vote for each Officer position and may vote by proxy. The proxy need not be a KWAC member but must present a written vote from the member to the current KWAC secretary.

If you are interested in running for any one of these positions, please email Mona Wolf or Diane Cassidy with your biography.

Please come and make your voice heard about the future of KWAC
and the clubs it serves!
