Christmas Card Campaign

Posted on Updated on

The scholarship committee is responsible for the Christmas Card Campaign this year. For a $25 donation, you will receive a charitable receipt and a beautiful Christmas card in thanks.

This year we have formed a collaboration with Journalists for Human Rights. Their scholarships for the Loyalist-Trent Summer Initiative supports 2 Aboriginal students who want to study journalism and practice it in their communities. This enables them to have a greater voice in Canadian media and gives them economic opportunities. The proceeds from this card campaign will go to support these scholarships.

Please support us in this endeavour! We will be accepting donations at the November general meeting and the Christmas Party.

You may also support the campaign by contacting Katrina Cross at or Linda Richardson at

Thank You From Our President

Posted on Updated on

Good evening:

 I would like to propose a toast to the club and the members for pulling off a classy show today. Whether you worked in the gardens or in the kitchen or supported the tour by purchasing a ticket and attending, it was by any standard a very fine event.

For my part I enjoyed working with a frighteningly efficient kitchen crew. I continue to be so very, very impressed with a group of women who do anything that they set out to do. It has been very good to work with you and I want to thank you for making today possible. Our only limit is our imagination.
At this point, we do not have a total of revenues collected. It will be acceptable  regardless. We did have some challenges this year that we will not have next year. I will share this information with you as soon as it becomes available.
In the meantime, enjoy the summer hiatus. You have earned it.
