Our first meeting of 2017, we hosted a great group of women at our new meeting spot – St. Mary’s Academy. Thank you again to Connie Yunyk at SMA for opening the doors for us. It is the perfect central location with loads of free parking!
We started our meeting with a wonder presentation from Michael Schiefer – Executive Director with the Never Alone Foundation – recipient of last meeting’s $100 cheques. Michael shared with us how little gifts of comfort can cost – such as a heating pad to stay warm, or a backyard planting bee – can really go a long way to bring peace to those affected by cancer. He showed a short video with testimonials and real examples of how the Never Alone Foundation helps so many in our community.
We then selected our 3 finalist charities: OHEYS Autism Programs, Manitoba Immigration Centre and St. Matthews-Maryland Community Ministry. After hearing presentations about these worthy local groups, members voted for St. Matthews-Maryland Community Ministry as the recipient of our $100 cheques.
Special thanks to Deb May and Georgine Van de Mosselaer for help in setting up our room and to Panago Pizza for the delicious pizzas!
