Last night at the CFUW Christmas Dinner, we once again had a successful club fund-raising event. All the money raised last night is used by our club membership to offset travel costs when club members attend Ontario Council or other CFUW events, whenever they go forward to represent Belleville & District.
The Silent Auction raised $1,013 and the Raffle Ticket Sales raised $309 for a grant total of$1,322.
Thank you for contributing to this success! Merry Christmas everyone!
Cathy Warren and Patricia McLaughlin
2019 CFUW Christmas Silent Auction Coordinators
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.
Christine McClure, Water Resources Manager for QuinteConservation addressed our CFUW meeting on Thursday November 21st. In her talk Christine tackled the very complex topic of water levels in our area and the causes of flooding. Christine is seen here with Program Co-ordinators, Ardith Bennett and Sue Frizzell.
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.
