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.

Valentine Bridge a Success

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.

Trivia Champions

Posted on Updated on

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.

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.
