We are aware that this year will be different and that our club will face challenges that will test our creativity, resiliency and commitment to our CFUW community but we are the very women to do it.
Interest groups that can meet are looking at ways to meet and new interest groups are being proposed.
The Annual Golf tournament and Garden Tour are already working hard at developing COVID 19 appropriate events.
Scholarships are more important than ever with students facing decisions that could impact their lives.
Those of you who have attended the informal connecting groups can attest to the pleasure they offer, whether strengthening existing relationships or getting to know new
Together, we can make 2020-21 a year to remember.
Mary Miller and Lynn Becker
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.
We are welcoming new members until the deadline of September 10. Please email June Boudreau if you are a CFUW Belleville and District member who would like to join this interest group for the coming year.
The Connecting Committee is meeting regularly to find ways for members to stay connected during these times. Don’t forget to check the Connecting During COVID-19 page for their suggestions and links to helpful information.
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!

Members of the Read the World at Lunch interest group recently enjoyed a socially distanced meeting at the home of Barb Pipher.
Hello Irene, thank you for the compliments. It was truly a heart lifting experience for me to have others enjoy our garden as well.
I have attached some poppy pictures as some of our guests were enthralled by the pink poppies. This morning, lo and behold there were red, orange and white poppies in addition to the pink ones. I will save the pods as some people were interested in seeds.
Feel free to organize another outing if you wish and I did reiterate that we welcome visitors any time.
