We are a diverse group of women who share a common purpose: promotion of education, involvement in public affairs, improvement in human rights and the status of women in Canada and abroad as well as encouraging friendship and co-operation among our members.
Our year runs from September to June. Monthly meetings, with a few exceptions, are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the meeting room at Plymouth-Cordage Retirement Residence, 110 First St., Welland. We host a guest speaker at most meetings. This is followed by a social break and then a business meeting. We set aside our December and June meetings for a special dinner event.
In addition to our meetings, members participate in a variety of interest groups and work together at our annual book sale to fund annual scholarships and community projects.
