From the President: Kathryn Greening Just a reminder that we will have a Silent Auction at our Annual Meeting Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 10:30 a.m. All money raised will support our scholarships at Sault College and Algoma University. You can support our scholarships through the making donations of items to the auction, bidding on items at the auction, and by making a monetary donation, if you are not a successful bidder. The 2018 Auction raised just over $1,200...not bad for a lunch hour! Contact Emily Noble or Gayle Manley if you have items to donate. You may drop things off on Monday, May 13 at the Legion between 1:00 and 3:00. Let’s put the FUN in fundraiser!
The following Governanace Policies document replaces the District 3 Consitution. There are numerous changes, due to the new structure at the Provincial Level which follows the “Canada Not-For-Profit Act”. We shall vote on the document, en bloc - as a whole, at the May AGM.
