A message from Chesapeake Junior Civitan Governor, and Junior Civitan International Director, Victoria Davis
Attending the 44th annual Sno-Do held in Midland, Ontario, Canada February 8th—11th has been one of the most memorable moments of my life. It did start off a little bumpy with my flight being cancelled and spending a night in Buffalo, NY, with another Board Member, a couple of Junior Civitans Governors and District Chairs but that didn't stop the wonderful experiences that took place.
I had never been outside of the United States so the chance to travel to Canada was very special to me. I had the opportunity to present some of my ideas to other Governor's as well as hear what other Districts have accomplished throughout this year. Yes, sitting through these meetings does sound uneventful, but they were anything but!
Another big component of Sno-Do is Snowmobile riding and Snow Tubing! Unfortunately there wasn't enough snow to go Snowmobiling but I did have the chance to go Snow Tubing which was absolutely amazing, especially going down the peak which was the steepest hill. To bring Sno-Do to an end there was a small going away party as the Governor's will not see each other until International Convention in June. An interesting thing about this party is the Silly awards, where all the Junior Civitans vote others for silly awards such as the last to wake up, the most daring, etc. I am proud to say I was given the Duct Tape award, the person who has a solution to every problem; which is more true than silly.
This experience has truly been amazing in so many ways, but the real importance was the amount raised for the Civitan International Research Center. As our District’s Governor, I was required to raise a minimum of $1800 to attend, and had set a personal goal of $2,500. Thanks to the Civitan Clubs and individuals in Chesapeake along with the donations I raise outside of Civitan, I was able to exceed my goal and fundraise $3,344!
So far $64,593 has been raised for the Civitan International Research Center, although this is the largest amount ever fundraised for Sno-Do we are still fundraising to meet our goal of $65,000. If your club has not made your donation yet, there’s still time. Simply click on my link (or cut and paste into your browser) to make your donation online. http://civint.convio.net/goto/VictoriaD Remember this counts toward adult club’s Civitans at the Helm. Chesapeake Junior Clubs can submit their FCIDD New Member Grants. Your club's first grant goes toward your Sno Do donation.
While my fellow travel companions and I were experiencing our travel delays getting to Ontario, the rest of the Governors and International Board Members made bird houses as a service project to benefit a local outdoor space.
