Durham North Branch News

Welcome to Durham-North. Retired women teachers are always welcome to join our branch. We are increasing our membership each year. At the last three annual conventions Durham North has received the Barbara Bain Membership Award for the increase in membership for a small branch. We look forward to welcoming new members.

Our branch has two annual luncheons. Our Spring Luncheon on the second Wednesday in May and the Fall Luncheon on the second Wednesday in October. We meet at 11:30 am with lunch at 12:00 noon at the Sunderland United Church in Sunderland, Ontario. The hot meal includes roast beef, potatoes, vegetable and homemade pie for a cost of $20.00. Besides the great meal there is usually a guest speaker and there is time to meet other retirees with caring and sharing.

Last year many of our members enjoyed activities such as theatre outings, coffee hours and lunches at the Roadside Diner in Sunderland. During the summer a number of members went to the Lucy Maud Montgomery Tea and play in Leaskdale, Ontario and others went to afternoon tea at Maryboro Lodge in Bobcaygeon, Ontario and the winter outings, included “The Festival of the Trees” in Bobcaygeon as well as a few musicals. We look forward to our luncheons and our outings and we hope that you can join us.

If you have any questions or concerns about Durham-North branch or would like to become a member please email Gerry Oldham, Communications Convenor for Durham-North.
