Thank you to the members who once again contributed children’s books for the annual Belleville Firefighters’ Toy Drive. Today we delivered eighty-two books to the collection warehouse. Thank you also to the Pints and Purls interest group for the selection of hats and scarves which were also donated.
Pictured are VP Planning and Development, Julie Brown, and President, Laura Hare, with some of the longtime volunteers who make this all possible.
Don’t forget to bring your items for the Silent Auction and a child’s book for the Belleville Firefighters’ Toy Drive. Last year they mentioned that they are often short of “chapter books” for older children.
The CFUW Belleville and District Scholarship Fund Bursary was recently awarded at a luncheon at Loyalist College. The recipient was Jessica Ganton, a Year 2 Environmental Technician.
The scholarship is awarded to a mature female student whose education has been interrupted and who has returned to school after an absence from the education system.
Members of the Fall Gathering Committee are pictured with keynote speaker Nora Young.
