Name: Janet Barnard
City: Mount Pleasant, Brant, Ontario
Joined Soroptimist: Feb 2009
Reason for joining: I was invited to a meeting by a colleague, and was drawn into a group of welcoming women helping other women and girls. Enjoyed new friendships and liked the fact that we were all working towards making a difference in other women’s lives, most particularly in our community.
Fun Fact: I enjoy cooking, sewing, gardening, reading, traveling with our 5th wheel trailer. Semi retired as a bookkeeper and often when we are traveling can continue from wherever we are. I can remember camping in Desert Hot Springs California, while working away I could look out one window to see palm trees and other window mountains, great memories.
