Our doors opened at 5.30 pm and we welcomed in a small but very enthusiastic group of women to our inaugural meeting.
The meeting ran from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm during which time we reviewed the overarching objectives of our group and reviewed a list of FAQs to ensure everyone thoroughly understood the group’s mandate and operations. Following this discussion, we carried on our random draw for the 3 finalists, heard the presentations from the 3 members on their charity of choice and then held our vote via secret ballot.
Even though this was only our first meeting, we already found ourselves having to hold a second vote to break a two-way tie! In the end the members voted to support Manitoba Riders for Disabilities (MRDA). Each member wrote out their cheque for $100 to MRDA and the meeting was adjourned.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our members recommended changing the September meeting date to Tuesday, September 15th, 2015. Please update your calendars. See you then!
