To the Editor,

Re: Kiwanis Club dissolves, Oct. 4.

Nanaimo Kiwanis Club has announced that it is folding, and in spite of clarity on its part, the result has been a number of calls and expressions of concern in the demise of Nanaimo Kiwanis Village which is not affected.

Nanaimo Kiwanis Village is operated under the Nanaimo District Senior Citizens’ Housing Development Society which was registered in 1957 and governed under the B.C. Societies Act.

The society and its board  expressed its thanks to the Nanaimo Kiwanis Club for its long standing support and commitment to the development of accommodation, programs and services at the village.

The society’s board has had continuous responsibility for overseeing village operations since 1957 and takes this opportunity to provide assurances that  it will continue management and ownership of the village.

Residents, families and concerned citizens can be assured that the dissolution of the Nanaimo Kiwanis Club will not impact Kiwanis Village day-to-day operations.

We continue to strive in our mission to providing a village of affordable housing, security and care options that foster pride and dignity for our community.
