The KNA is currently seeking a member to sit on the executive and serve as treasurer.
The position entails administering our modest budget: signing cheques, and keeping track of our finances. The job is not terribly onerous – monthly meetings and a small amount of record-keeping in between are the most essential tasks. Of course, one also gets to help make decisions for the group. An added bonus is that you get to meet more of your neighbours and participate in the life of the community.
Any interested member who would like to get involved in the decision-making process and who is good with numbers is invited to contact the acting treasurer by email about joining the executive.

CPR can be a vital link in saving the life of a loved one in cardiac arrest and anyone can learn it. In addition to becoming familiar with CPR, participants will also learn how to use Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). These defibrillators are the ones that you will have seen in many public buildings as part of the Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) program and they may also be a life-saver if used on someone in cardiac arrest.
According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 40,000 people in Canada experience cardiac arrest each year, the majority of which occur either at home or in public places. For every minute that passes without help, a person’s chance of surviving a cardiac arrest drops by seven to 10%. Learning CPR is easy and inexpensive and it could mean saving the life of a friend or family member. When CPR is combined with the prompt use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), the chance for survival can go up to 50% or more.
“The Heart and Stroke Foundation urges all Canadians to learn CPR. The more people trained, the greater the chance of keeping those that have suffered cardiac arrest alive until an ambulance arrives,” says Sue Turner, Community Mission Specialist, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. “You don’t need to be a doctor to save a life.”
