In October of 2007, I joined Kiwanis. My wife Kim had been a member for quite a few years and we traveled together to Kiwanis events. Interclub meetings were held regularly and we visited the other clubs frequently. It was just natural that I should join.
I have been on the Board of Directors most of the years I’ve been with the Augusta Kiwanis Club. I became Club Secretary for a 3 years and then I served as Lieutenant Governor in 2015-2016. For many years I’ve attended all District Conventions and Conferences. They have given me the knowledge to serve in leadership positions. I am pleased to be serving as President of our club this year.
I have lived in Kennebec County all of my life. I grew up in Winslow on the banks of the Kennebec River. For 20 years I was employed as manager at Mathieu’s Auto Body Shop in Waterville. Later on, I worked as an Auto and Homeowner adjuster for Allstate Insurance. This gave me the opportunity to travel and help people during their time of need. I am now retired.
I enjoy working with my hands including woodworking, building, gardening and landscaping. My daughter Renee and my 2 grandsons live nearby and my daughter Stacy lives in Vermont. My wife Kimberley and I have been married for 17 years.
