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.  Last year CFUW National celebrated its 100th anniversary.  This year the club is celebrating its 80th anniversary. 


Canadore College, as well as Nipissing University, sends our club congratulations as well as thanking us for our scholarships. For information about the scholarships CFUW North Bay donates annually and thank-you letters from recipients, click here.


Spring Notes

Our next meeting is our AGM on May 19 when you will be asked to vote on the budget for 2021-22, the new executive, and the annual reports, which you will receive by email a week before the meeting.  The nominating committee hopes to find members to fill our executive. Please contact one of its members (Caroline Haist, Sheila Taylor, or Joan Barner) if you can help.

Our guest speaker Brenda Robertson will talk about her experience as a two-time CFUW delegate at the UN Commission of the Status of Women.

The 80th Anniversary Committee chaired by Nat Brunette has been hard at work.  Click here to read what has been planned so far and to see her presentation made at the March general meeting. Please let Nat know if you can help (natbrunette62@gmail.com).
