Best wishes for another year of caring, sharing and having fun!

Our Niagara South Branch delighted in caring and sharing with our members and community throughout the year. We celebrated new life members, and supported local businesses and women’s and children’s charities. Our programs focused on The Arts in Niagara.

The Fall meeting welcomes retirees and honoured recipients of the Cora Bailey Award. At Christmas we all get creative with decorative seasonal materials at Vermeer’s Greenhouses in Welland.

We look forward to a guest speaker in the spring in Fort Erie and while at this moment we have not confirmed that person, we are always excited to learn what our organizers have planned for us.

Our year culminates with our final luncheon and attendance at a performance at Roselawn Theatre in Port Colborne. It is always a treat for us to enjoy the arts with friends and previous colleagues.

Our members anticipate a new year of fun, caring and sharing. We welcome all retired women teachers to come and join us.

The Niagara South Branch members enjoyed a Christmas floral arranging session in December at which we had the pleasure of Lois Lockhart (2nd V.P.) and her friend Sharon Craven attending.

Niagara South Branch enjoys a year of diverse activities, the opportunity to spend time with friends and acquaintances and meeting and welcoming new members.

We look forward to seeing you at the Niagara South Branch.
