Jeneece Place

In January 2012, Janeece Place was officially opened. This is a remarkable facility for children & their families who may have a baby in the preemie nursery or a young child who must spend either one night or some time in the hospital. The families come not only from Victoria, but all over the Island, B.C. or other parts of Canada.

On Sat. April 12th, as part of Kiwanis One Day, members of our club “moved in” for the morning to help prepare some meals for families & to help clean up the grounds. A wonderful way to help in our community. On Sat.

Kiwanis Club of Oak Bays President's Project

Donation of $8000 to The Books for Breakfast program

The Books For  Breakfast program is held at the MFRC (Military Family and Resource Centre) building in Colwood.The program got off to a great start this year, in part, thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Oak Bays President's Project donation of $8000.   Darlene Manthorpe the creator of Books for Breakfast stated that the Kiwanis donation has insured the program will be off to a healthy start again next year.

Over one hundred children and parents attended the Thursday session.  Each child chose their own book to take home. Participants come from all around Greater Victoria. If you or your children or grandchildren are interested in attending this 1 hour program please check out the Books for Breakfast web site at http://www.sookewestshoreliteracy.com/westshore/programs/books-breakfast-literacy-lunch.



Sharon Fedorak, 1,000th  Breakfast CustomerSharon Fedorak

Another successful winter season at the tearoom. Yes, the 1000th breakfast was served Sunday morning, March 29th. The lucky lady was a visitor from North Vancouver, Sharon Fedorak. Sharon received a lovely surprise when she walked into the tearoom and was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers by way of saying “thank you” for supporting us. 

The breakfasts have become so very popular and on Sunday many regulars were lining up to buy “one more of the delicious meals”. All of the proceeds will go to help purchase much needed upgrades for the Kiwanis 

Many thanks to all who have helped out over the past 3 months; the cooks, order takers, runners, bus boys/girls! & the dishwashers + all those who stayed behind to help clean up. Special thanks must go to Jan Burns who not only was there every Sunday, but went in on Saturdays to help set things up & make sure everything was sparkly clean.

Sharon's gorgeous flowers were donated by Don’s Food Market in James Bay. The owner also donated carnations which were given out to customers on Sunday. Please say thank you by supporting his business.

"Shred It"

You cleaned out your closets/emptied those boxes that had been hanging around for years & brought all those old files & papers to “Shred It”on March 14th at the tearoom. Another successful fund raiser for the Kiwanis Pavilion Foundation. It raised $500.00. Thanks  to Shred It for their support.

Milton ManorWe meet every Thursday evening at 5:45 pm at 2075 Milton Street for dinner.


There we socialize and discuss our projects.
Guest speakers are featured at the first three meetings of the month.

The last Thursday is our business meeting.
We raise most of our funds by operating and volunteering at the Willows Beach Tea Room.

Our members can choose to help in many ways. They can
help govern three seniors facilities or work with a youth service leadership program 

There is an opportunity to be involved with infants through Best Babies.

We support Project Eliminate, the Kiwanis International initiative.

We have been invited to work with the Oak Bay Business Improvement Association on some of their community activities.

We are an active club that support a myriad of other projects.

We are always looking for other meaningful community projects to initiate and support!

WE have FUN doing all of this!
