SLF NEWS

I’m sure most of you would by now have explored the new Grandmothers Campaign website. There are several new features which are designed to make connecting and finding information even easier than before. The event calendar Is one new feature. Upcoming Events – Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign . Here members and supporters can find all upcoming events across the Campaign in one place. The calendar provides a “month at a glance” and longer view for looking and planning ahead. The word “Online” will be added to the titles of events that are open for anyone to attend to make them more identifiable as online events for people browsing the calendar, There will be a standard “Upcoming Events” section in each monthly Granny Bulletin that links to the event calendar as a reminder to readers to peruse the calendar and to encourage all groups to add their upcoming events and activities to the calendar.

Another great new feature is the online sales marketplace. Online sales continue to grow across the Campaign and you can browse the products here. https://grandmotherscampaign.org/marketplace/

The Campaign Call topic is Goals and Plans for 2021. On January 21, 2021 at 10:30 PM – 12:30 PM MTN. Join the group to share hopes and goals for the coming year! Email: campaign@stephenlewisfoundation.org to RSVP.

Happy browsing!

CONNECTIONS CORNER

As most of you know, the Connections Team has had its wings clipped since the pandemic came upon us. We had scheduled some Winter Walks in November and December but given further restrictions and anticipation of colder weather in January, we have decided to take a break for now. We will reassess the situation for February.

In the meantime, the Connection Team would like to wish you all a peaceful and safe Holiday Season. Who would have thought a year ago, life would be so different and day to day connections between us all would be a thing only of dreams. In the meantime, it is one day at a time gathering strength where we can. We have made it this far and thankfully, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Please take care of yourselves.

UG WALKING GROUP

The indoor walking group that meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Market Mall is suspended until the Alberta Health Services Emergency is cancelled.

Thank you for your support, be safe & stay healthy.

2020 VIRTUAL STRIDE TO TURN THE TIDE UPDATE

Thank you all for your support of our Virtual Stride Activities in June 2020. We were able to raise $20,525.00 to contribute to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. The national total raised was $260,000.00, a very impressive amount for the Grandmothers in Africa. Next year we will be participating again.
