There is certainly a lot going on with Grandmothers groups across the country this month. Below is the link to a list of virtual events that are being organized by groups within the Grandmothers Campaign. These include several virtual author events and for myself I’m particularly interested in The Old Orchard Blossoms and the BramGran’s invitation to watch a conversation about the Canadian immigrant experience between author Jon Tattrie and Tareq Hadhad, CEO of Peace by Chocolate.  Also of interest for me is the Grandmas Partnering with Africa presentations of 3 online evening workshops about Africa . Then if I have time I’d like to join the Capital Grannies and start planning my native garden with two master gardeners. Find these events and many more HERE.

Planning for the big 15th Anniversary concert is going very well. Many of you have asked who the performers are going to be. You can find that and more details about the event HERE.

Online sales continue to grow across the Campaign with groups showcasing their products through their own websites, Facebook, local media attention, word of mouth and the new Grandmothers Campaign marketplace.

Carol Schultz from the PENINSULA GRANNIES co-ordinates the sale of Grandmothers Campaign t-shirts. These t-shirts are 100% cotton (with compacted yarns to minimize shrinkage). They have tapered necks and shoulders and a tear-away label. T-shirts are available in sizes XS-4XL and in a range of colours: black, charcoal, maroon, kelly green, navy, purple, red, royal blue t-shirts with the white Grandmothers Campaign logo OR lime, yellow, sangria, heather, light blue, white, silver t-shirts with the black Grandmothers Campaign logo. They are $23 each, which includes the tax and shipping cost to one address per group, with no minimum amount. All proceeds from the t-shirt sales go towards the Grandmothers Campaign (through the PENINSULA GRANNIES ).  The last date to order is March 15, 2021. Please contact Carol Schultz from PENINSULA GRANNIES at moosieschultz@msn.com or 519-795-7798. NOTE:  There must be at least 15 shirts ordered across Canada or the orders will be cancelled and funds returned. A sample in black is shown HERE.
