Many of the groups across the country are having a well deserved break from their activities and look forward to returning in the Fall with renewed energy and enthusiasm. Others continue right through the summer and as always it’s interesting to hear reports of the many creative and fun ways that have been dreamt up to keep up the support for the Campaign. Some event-based ideas happening across the country that were shared included: cycle tours in Ottawa, Vancouver and Victoria, farmers’ markets, plant sales, scarves and card sales, zoom fitness sessions and even cocktail-making classes! , and in New Brunswick a group will be taking their Ladies Night Out fashion show to the big screen by potentially renting out a drive-in theatre.
As you know the plans for our Alberta Gathering that was to be held in Medicine Hat last spring had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. So my counterpart for North Alberta region, my co GRL Judy Howe, myself and our liaison staff member Ruth-Anne Seburn have just had a Zoom meeting to discuss ideas of how we can come together in a virtual but meaningful way. This will be held on the morning of Saturday, October 24 from 10:00 AM to 12 NOON. More details of the programme will follow and we are asking you and all members of groups across Alberta for input so we can make this an event that people would welcome and want to be a part of. Please do get in touch with me with your thoughts and ideas.
Lastly and as usual don’t forget the September Campaign Call is on Thursday, September 17 at 12:30 PM Eastern Time . This will be an Autumn kick off for groups to discuss what is going on in their regions for the fall. Contact the Grandmothers Campaign team at campaign@
That’s it ’til next month!
