CFUW Bazaar is a go; 30 years in CranbrookPosted: August 12, 2012

The Canadian Federation of University Women-Cranbrook Club is pleased to announce they have a large number of new local artisans who have committed to the 27th Annual Bazaar to be held Saturday, November 3 at the Cranbrook Golf Course.

“We are thrilled with the overwhelming response from new contacts,” said Cathryn Henley, chair of the Bazaar Committee 2012. “We do have room for more without crowding, and we are taking registrations until early October,” Henley added. “However, if it fills up before then, we will have to close registrations as we do not want to overcrowd the clubhouse. People like to shop with ease,” said Henley.

Proceeds from the Bazaar go to our many ongoing projects, with the bulk of it to the scholarship and bursary programs at the College of the Rockies and Mount Baker Secondary School.

“Our intention is to pay off our scholarship commitment at the college this year,” stated Henley, so that monies will be there long after we are dead and gone. It is our legacy to the women students of the East Kootenay. We will still have fund raising events for Mount Baker Secondary School and hope to increase the monies we give to the recipients of our awards.

“It is a special year for our club,” stated Henley. “We have been active in Cranbrook for 30 years now.”

The club is celebrating its 30th anniversary at the Manual Training Centre on Thursday, September 20. We have a lineup of speakers with Ghada Al Atrash being our guest speaker. The evening starts promptly at 7 p.m. and everyone is invited to attend this enlightening and special event. Cake and beverages will be served at the close. Our small club of 12 members is busy with Bazaar preparations as well as with this 30th Anniversary Party. Anyone wishing to join this active club is welcome to research us at www.cfuw-cranbrook.com .
