A message from our President:
Well we did it! We are 75 years old and getting stronger. Last night’s gala dinner was a very fine event with a very full house. Friendships were rekindled and new acquaintances were made. We did it up right thanks to to the efforts of the organizing committee and the participation of the membership present and past.
Four members of our executive attended an Internet Marketing Workshop hosted by The City of Quinte West and Bay of Quinte Tourism on Monday night. We were able to explore ways of increasing our online profile in the community in order to further advertise the Garden Tour and our other activities.

Our annual Garden Tour is the major fundraiser in support of our CFUW Belleville and District Scholarship Program. Many local businesses and individuals have already stepped forward this year to sponsor the event by donating cash or items for the raffle and silent auction to be held the day of the tour.
If you are shopping at Connon Nurseries between April 14 and June 14, be sure to mention CFUW Belleville. A donation of 10% of your purchase will be given to our club.
Join fellow members to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the local CFUW club on April 24 at Occasions By The Bay
