New members are welcome.
Please join us at the Lion’s Pavilion Zwick’s Island Park from 2 to 4 pm.
Bring a mask, a chair and be ready to visit and hear all about the upcoming year!
We are aware that this year will be different and that our club will face challenges that will test our creativity, resiliency and commitment to our CFUW community but we are the very women to do it.
Interest groups that can meet are looking at ways to meet and new interest groups are being proposed.
The Annual Golf tournament and Garden Tour are already working hard at developing COVID 19 appropriate events.
Scholarships are more important than ever with students facing decisions that could impact their lives.
Those of you who have attended the informal connecting groups can attest to the pleasure they offer, whether strengthening existing relationships or getting to know new
Together, we can make 2020-21 a year to remember.

The 2019 – 2020 AGM was held via Webex on Thursday, May 20. There were 42 members and one guest in attendance. The guest speaker, Danielle Edwards, was one of the 2019 scholarship recipients. Danielle spoke briefly and then answered our many questions about her experiences as a first year student in the Education program at Queen’s University. We were particularly interested in knowing about the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had and will continue to have on her studies.
Thirty two members took part in the first online general meeting. Some of the participants are pictured here.
