100th ANNIVERSARY AWARDS 2019
From the beginning, our club was very enthusiastic about raising funds for an award to commemorate the 100th anniversary of CFUW. We collected over $15,000 in about a year, much more quickly than anticipated.
Our members have a strong commitment to supporting scholarship, and were generous in this endeavour, both in time and monetary contributions. In addition to individual donations, club members privately hosted fundraising teas and luncheons in their homes. The Cycling and Exploring Music interest groups and several Bridge groups made cash donations; the Gardening group auctioned Christmas wreaths; and the Scribblers group wrote, published and sold a wonderful collection of their own short stories. The parties were fun, the wreaths were beautiful, and the book was a bestseller. We’re so proud of our generous, creative and hardworking members!
