There was lots going on at the February general meeting. Loyalist students were filming for the upcoming anniversary video. Regular business was discussed, including a presentation regarding a new scholarship. We then broke into workshops which included a presentation about recycling practices, silk painting, and cookie decorating. An entertaining time to break the February blahs.
In spite of last night’s weather there was a good turnout to hear the guest speaker, Lynda Rollins. Lynda spoke to us about her work with children and their families in the area of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.
There was an excellent turnout for the September Coffee Party which was the first meeting of the 2018 – 2019 year. The room was abuzz as returning members and new members paid their membership fees, investigated the numerous interest groups, socialized and enjoyed the delicious refreshments provided by the Special Events committee.
Our club is welcoming new members. Join us at the Opening Coffee Party and Welcome Meeting on Thursday, September 20 at 6:30 pm to learn more about our community involvement and many interest groups.

On Thursday evening, April 15th, our speaker is Hakim Belhadjhamida on the topic “Islam the religion of peace”. He was recommended by a member of our Club who heard him speak last year and thought the topic would be of interest to members providing much needed insight about Islam. It will begin about 7:45/50 after our business meeting, which is expected to take more time month. We encourage you to invite friends and neighbours who want to learn about Islam.
The March General Meeting will be held on Thursday, March 15th in the parish hall of St. Thomas Anglican Church, Church Street, Belleville. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
