Thank you to Marilyn Jackson for hosting an opportunity for some of us to see one another again, talk about anything under the sun, and enjoy one another’s company. The five of us who were present certainly did enjoy the occasion.
Members of CFUW : Time to Smell the Roses
If you are looking for a lovely excuse to enjoy the first days of summer outdoors, the ROSES are blooming in Corby Rose Garden Belleville. This park is bordered by Bridge, William, Queen and Ann Streets with car parking on the west side of William and the east side of Ann. There are benches for distance lingering and a soft water fountain to transport the mind. It is a lovely little “oasis” and the scent is heady!
Perhaps you could arrange to share this window of opportunity with another member you have missed over these months, when regular CFUW meetings have not been possible. This is an ideal place to have a safely distanced chat, renew friendships.
The members of the Scholarship Committee are pleased to announce the awarding of the CFUW Belleville and District Scholarships for 2020.
The Helen Zurrer and university recipients each received $2000. The college recipients received $1500. Congratulations graduates!
