Fall Notes.

Our November 20 meeting is our major fundraiser for scholarships: the silent auction held this year at Calvin Presbyterian Church. We will be presenting our special scholarship to commemorate CFUW’s 100th anniversary to the winner and welcoming previous scholarship winners. We will be entertained by the Baytones.  Please encourage family, friends, and neighbours to attend.

The Charitable Trust dinner takes place this year on Monday, December 2, at 5:30 p.m. at Cecils.  Sign up at the auction and indicate your choices from the menu.  Click here for full details.  Kathleen Jodouin, executive director of Victims Services is the guest speaker.
