District Administrator


Firma French

District Administrator

My volunteer life began as a 14-year-old doing hair & nails for the senior ladies at the Civic Hospital, singing at daily Roman Catholic mass as a high school student, being a Girl Guide Leader (until I was married). My volunteering experiences continue in working with children needing remedial work in my children’s school, leading a children’s choir & a mixed choir of teens & seniors in church and many more.

In Kiwanis, I have been a secretary, a President, a Lieutenant Governor, a Kiwanis District Administrator for K-Kids, Builders Clubs & Key Clubs as well as a Site Coordinator for Key Leader & now I’m back with Key Club as District Administrator. It is an honour to mentor & share my experience with our Key Clubbers.

Key Club is not for the privileged but for the teenager willing to help cloth the naked, feed the hungry, mentor or befriend the mistreated, bring joy to the lonely, raise funds for those special projects that their Key Club & the Eastern Canada Board agree on.

Lastly, your Faculty & Kiwanis advisors along with your parents are always there for you, so don’t forget to call on them & thank them for helping to further develop our strong leaders of tomorrow.
