Well, hello again!
My goodness, we are busy.
Our new executive members are learning their roles and will be ready for our next meeting which will be Wednesday, April 10th, 2013 at 7 p.m. at St. Anthony’s.
Unfortunately, our March 13th meeting has been cancelled. The president, and past-president are unable to attend, and our New Organization chairperson is still “learning the ropes”.
My apologies to all our members.
On February 9th, a hasty request went out to all our on-line members with the invitation to join our St. Anthony CWL team for The Coldest Night of the Year – a fundraiser to raise money for the Lloydminster Men’s Shelter. It was held at Bud Miller Park on Saturday, February 23rd. As this was the first year for the walk locally, I think we did quite well! Our small team consisted of five walkers: Pat Huber, Marianne and Mark Witzaney, Steven Hodgson and Edna Hodgson. Thank you to all members and others who came forward with donations. We were able to raise almost $700 for the cause, and locally, Lloydminster raised over $30,000!
Thank you to all ladies who helped with the Stations of the Cross on Feb. 22 and with the World Day of Prayer service at Dr. Cooke Extendicare on February 28th and at St. John’s Anglican church on March 1st.
Zone 4 meeting is coming up March 16th in Provost.
Edmonton Archdiocesan CWL convention is coming up in Leduc on April 18th to 21st. (We will use Thursday, April 18th as a travel day.) I have attached a copy of the convention agenda and registration form. Registration deadline is April 5th.
If you are interested in attending convention, please contact Edna Hodgson at 306-825-2699.
God bless all of you as we continue our travel through Lent.
President, St. Anthony’s CWL
