Keepin’ It Country Line Dance Club are so pleased to announce that we donated $1,000 in support of the Alberta Children’s Hospital through County 105 Caring for Kids Radiothon. This year through generous benefactors, all donations are being tripled. So our $1,000 has grown to $3,000 now.
KIC is able to make such a generous donation due to our very low session fee plus the nominal fee we charge to perform/entertain as well as the volunteerism of our members. It’s a privilege to belong to such a generous Club along with our excellent three Instructors and of course the enthusiasm of our members.
KICLDC has received thank you's from our recent donations of $500 each to Meals on Wheels and Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids. Take a moment to look at the two attachments to appreciate how much these two donations mean to these two wonderful organizations. The note from the Calgary Kids came in a very small brown lunch bag that was coloured by one of the children. Warms your heart. ♥ ♥

KIC has received a thank you from Chiropractor Dr. Tom Kelly for the donation of over 370 pairs of socks for their Sock Drive from all of our KIC members and MidSun Community line dancers. Terrific job everyone.
Keepin’ It Country Line Dancing Club (KICLDC) has made a donation of $500 each to Brown Bagging It For Calgary’s Kids and Meals on Wheels.
The Executive passed a motion to make these two donations at our September meeting and felt these two organizations represented our children and seniors of Calgary. According to Brown Bagging It For Calgary’s Kids, there are approximately 4,200 kids in Calgary who go to school without the food they need. Our gift will help provide energy for some children to run and play, to focus and listen, to learn and make friends. This gift will allow a child to live up to their potential by changing their day and help change their life. The principal clients for Meals on Wheels are seniors but there are also programs open to all Calgarians who are in need of a meal service to maintain independence in their own homes. Food is a basic need, a life necessity. What we eat or don’t eat affects our mental, emotional and physical well-being. More than 463,000 meals are delivered every year.
KICLDC is proud to support these two organizations. We couldn’t do it without our registered members and volunteers so a BIG thank you to each and everyone one of you. THANK YOU!
