At the May 15th luncheon meeting of the Olds Kiwanis Club, local benefactor Alex Zec was thanked for his contributions to the community. Mr. Zec is the first person to be given an honourary membership in the local Kiwanis club which has been active in Olds for more than fifty-years. His financial contributions have enabled various groups such as the Kiwanis to provide services to the community. In addition to funding playgrounds, Mr. Zec has supported minor hockey, the Olds Grizzlys AJHL team and the Kiwanis Performing Arts. With his support two pianos were donated and installed in the Trans Canada Theatre. Also present at the award ceremony was Judy Dahl, Mayor of the Town of Olds.
We spoke with the President of Olds Kiwanis, Hugh Bodmer at the Tot Spot playground in the Destiny Place neighbourhood.
