District 18’s annual “Chickadee Luncheon” initiated 16 years ago by former past-president Louise Cooper was held this year at Heather Lodge in Carnarvon.
Our lunch was absolutely delicious–start to finish and beautifully presented and served by a very attentive and accommodating staff.
The door prize, a charming stained-glass hummingbird was donated by VP Roberta Fuller and created by her sister. Georgiena Boyle won the prize.
After lunch, our guest speaker, Sheila Ziman, gave a short presentation about our county’s initiative in sponsoring the relocation of a refugee family. Sheila let us know that there are many ways of helping, given our abilities.
Many thanks to our members from Kawartha Lakes and Tony Dymott who braved the brutal temperatures to attend.
President’s note: Cheryl provided valet service to help members park and manoeuvre their way to the lodge.
