News from the Planning Committee

May means poetry. Well maybe not for everyone but certainly for us at CFUW Windsor. We will be celebrating local poets at our May meeting.

This year’s theme of “Farmers Feed Cities” celebrated the UN International Year of Family Farming. This was a tough topic but we received some really good poems, some from schools in Essex County who had never participated in our contest before. In keeping with our mandate to promote education, I think we should be happy with this year’s results.
May also signals our last meeting of the year. If you have any feedback on this year’s programme, be sure to approach a Planning Committee member of send us an email. We love to hear from you.

We have another opportunity to socialize together at our June Tea. Please take the opportunity to join us on June 7th. Remember to bring at least one guest! The Tea is a great fundraising opportunity for CFUW Windsor. If you are able, consider donating an item to our silent auction and/or buying something from our silent auction.
