Our first meeting of 2018 was great – well attended by current members and we are so appreciative of seeing new faces!!

Next, we heard from 3 members who presented their favourite charities:
Wpg Humane Society – Karen McNeill
Agape Table – Carolyn Jarvin

Dec. 5th meeting chosen charity – ALS Society of MB “Light up a Life” campaign

Our final 2017 meeting was fabulous to say the least!! We kicked off our meeting with the announcement that we have finally surpassed the 100 member mark!! We are thrilled and so thankful to CTV Morning Live – Winnipeg and host Nicole Dube for airing a feature on us just a few weeks ago. We noted a dramatic increase in membership as a result- but we still want more members. So keep sharing our posts and spread the good word about our group.
We started off our meeting with an update from Brenda Evans of Esther House – the September charity of choice. Brenda gave us insight into how much our donation means to their organization-our $6200 funding represents 10% of their operating budget. The fact that our donation was unexpected and unsolicited means so much to the residents and staff at Esther House. Joining Brenda to hold the giant cheque is Nicole Duble (left) and Karen Manitowich (centre).


Next, we heard from 3 members who presented their favourite charities:
Wpg Humane Society – Karen McNeill

Truly remarkable meeting – over 100 members and our meeting adjourned in 32 minutes! Efficient and effective – but what else would you expect from a group of Winnipeg women!
