Welcome

 

Welcome to the CFUW North Bay website.  By using the links at the top of the page, you can find information about and links to international, national and provincial organizations and publications (About CFUW), as well as information about our North Bay club, founded in 1941.  The club celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2016.  For details of the celebrations, click here.  Last year CFUW celebrated its 100th anniversary.

Summer Notes


The garden tour on Saturday, July 11, was a great success in spite of the rain, judging from the smiling faces of those who came out to bid farewell to Bunty Swanson.  Everyone was happy to be able to chat face to face and a very substantial amount was raised for scholarships (see photos below).  For a virtual tour of the gardens and their visitors, click here.


Some interest groups are getting together virtually and actually (Heritage Gardeners).  Check annual reports and the June newsletter for more information.
