May Notes

On Tuesday, June 11, three of our members will be chairing a special meeting to discuss a new structure for our general meetings.  The plan is to present the recommendations that result from the discussion at the meeting to the new executive.  Please consider attending this meeting at Cementation at 6:30 on June 11.

At our May AGM, Brenda Robertson handed out invitations to our members from the Professional Women Newcomers’ Network to an international potluck dinner.  The dinner is on Thursday, June 13 from 6 to 9 p.m.  You also received an email on May 17 with more information about this event.  There is still time to respond to this invitation.  The deadline is June 1. 

Our next meeting is our dinner meeting on June 19 at Terrace Suites in Callander celebrating CFUWs 100th anniversary.  For details, check the invitation Brenda Robertson sent you.  Click here for a copy.

Tuesday, July 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. is the new date and time of Afternoon Tea Through the Decades, the summer fundraiser for our scholarships hosted by Heli Vail, Diane Wallace, and Heather Chambers at Diane’s home on the lake. Please mark it on your calendars and plan to attend wearing an outfit from any of the last 10 decades to celebrate CFUW’s 100th anniversary. Admission is a $20 donation to the club’s scholarship fund, for which you will receive a tax receipt.  Please bring a gift to exchange: something that you wish to recycle.
