Thank you to Shirley E for opening her home to us for an evening of “Friends & Fun”. Dinner was catered by Beijing Gardens of Waterdown (they make great Pad Thai). It was an action packed evening! To start, we’d like to welcome our newest member, Janet, and all our guests.

Welcome Janet, our newest member

Shirley M gave an excellent presentation on the Live Your Dream campaign. Did you know that all the money raised through the sale of merchandise goes back to programs? Some of the things you can do on the site are plan your goals, make a donation and send a note/ecard. She encouraged all the members to fill out an Action Plan, but also to share these tools with other women and read some of the success stories on the site. They are very inspiring!

Everyone recieved their package of posters & tickets for the “Flashback to the 70’s” fundraiser happening at the Royal Canadian Legion in Waterdown on April 17th. Tickets are $25 each and will be on sale at Weeks of Waterdown for anyone who sells out 🙂 Find out more »

Kathy volunteered to maintain a scrapbook for our club. We encourage our club members to check their local papers for articles and to bring in any letters, photos or awards so we can keep them for posteriety!

The “health of the club survey” that was done last month showed we’re definately on track. Thank you to all the members who completed it. We really apprecaite your feedback.

On behalf of the Soroptimist Foundation of Canada, Shirley McCoy presented Barb with the Red Star Award for our club. This certificate recognizes our donation of $250.

Congratulations to Barb McCoy who won the 50:50 draw and generously donated her winnings back to the club and happy birthday to Sandy who is an indeterminate age today!
