St. Catharines Branch News
Welcome to the St Catharines Branch of RWTO!
We are a branch of about 400 members and we feel we have much to offer to the retired women teachers of St Catharines. We run five luncheons every year, each with an engaging program and lots of opportunity to chat with old friends. Our members participate in a variety of interest groups that include physical activity, card-playing, dining, reading, travelling, and computer use. For more information about luncheons and interest groups, please see the links below.
Caring and sharing are an important part of our Branch. Our Goodwill Convenors send cards to members who are ill or have experienced bereavement. They also send cards regularly to our over-80 and over-90 members, and arrange flowers and visits to the over-90’s. In terms of community outreach, St Catharines Branch participates in four primary activities each year, including the Arthritis Society Christmas Wrapping Campaign, the Christmas drive for Community Care, the Rankin Cancer Run in May, and an on-going Volunteer Link that informs members regarding volunteer opportunities in the community.
Come join in the fun at St Catharines Branch! Our yearly membership fee is $45; fully paid members of other branches may join us in St Catharines as social members for a fee of $15.
