We just received word from Jeunesses Musicales Canada that they have cancelled all concerts until after April 13th. This includes our concert.
I’d like to thank everyone for their help with this years efforts. It is unfortunate but probably the right decision.
This year’s Valentine Luncheon Bridge was held on February 13, 2020 at St. Thomas Church. Twenty-two tables of four, or 88 people enjoyed a luncheon provided by club members followed by an afternoon of bridge. This year’s menu was Carrot Soup (Jess Chamber’s recipe from our very own cookbook), an assortment of sandwiches and Sticky Toffee Date Cake. At the end of the afternoon prizes were awarded to the winners as well as a number of door prizes.
Twenty-six members of the club contributed to the event in some way or other by donating prizes, providing food, setting up the tables, greeting the guests at the door, serving and cleaning up. A true team effort! As a result, $1710 was presented to the scholarship trust fund.
Thanks to all for a very successful event.
Sylvia Doyle and Susan Pine
Coming in March! Tickets available on our website and at the Belleville Public Library.
Thank you to the CanLit Dinner interest group who were the hosts this year for the delicious annual luncheon.
One of last year’s scholarship recipients, Jaunita Da Silva, spoke to us briefly about what receiving the scholarship has meant for her.
Before the short general meeting we were entertained by four talented students from the Michael Faulkner School of Music.
Yikes! January 7th already: our January 16 luncheon is on the horizon.
AND the deadline for purchasing tickets, Monday January 13, is fast
approaching. As you can appreciate, we need to have firm numbers in order to complete our preparations.
If you are planning to attend and still need a ticket, on-line purchase
is an option, or you may contact Pauline Lingard.
