The Scholarship committee is excited to announce that after ‘passing the hat’ at last night’s general meeting we have exceeded our goal of $2500 by $30 for our joint bursary with Journalists for Human Rights!
Thank you so much to every one who donated to this worthy cause.
Martha Grant and Susan Pine as co-chairs of The Valentine Bridge are thrilled to announce that this year’s event raised $1086.00! That amount has now been turned over to The Scholarship Fund.
They wish to thank those that helped with the set-up and the kitchen duties – Lee Casselman, Ann Lanning, Janet MacDonald and Cathy Warren. Also many thanks to all those who contributed the scrumptious desserts.
Friday the 13th proved lucky for a group of CFUW members and the club. At the invitation of member, Jo-Anne Twamley, they attended the first Kiwanis Club Trivia Night fundraiser. Lynn Becker, Penny Hendricks, Sandi Repic and Jane Taylor were joined by Gary Magwood, Stephen Repic and Mike Taylor to form the Table 10 (CFUW) team.
By combining their knowledge and expertise in a variety of topics, the team was successful in claiming the first place prize as well as having lots of laughs along the way.
The prize of $300 will be donated to our scholarship fund.
Now is the time to renew your membership or join CFUW Belleville & District. Use our easy online process. There is also a separate online “event” for making a donation to the Scholarship Fund. This will be available all year for your convenience. Go to the Online Payments page for details.
The winners of the 2014 scholarships have been announced by the committee. Please see the Scholarships page for the link to the names and photos of the recipients.
Congratulations to all the students and thank you to the Scholarship Committee and members who assisted them on the interview nights.
