RWTO Area 7 Luncheon

Our second annual Area 7 Luncheon was hosted by the RWTO Trenton branch at Baxter Creek Golf Club in October. Members from each of our five branches: Northumberland South Durham, North Durham, Belleville, Trenton and Peterborough attended. We enjoyed a colouring relaxation experience, a chance to win $50 and we endeavoured to outbid each other at the Silent Auction. Congratulations to all winners. We also had opportunities to learn about Community Projects from other Branches. After a delicious lunch, we had an experiential ride from Toronto to Montreal in 1840, as shared by historian and the author of 38 Hours to Montreal, Dan Buchanan. He made the history of this time period, come to life with a power point presentation. William Weller transported Governor General Charles Poulett Thomson from Toronto to Montreal. It was wonderful to meet members from Area 7.  We will all look forward to next year’s event, hosted by the North Durham branch. Judy-Anne Tumber, Area 7 Director

We welcomed two new members, Shirley Hamilton and Karen Howard, to our Peterborough Branch!  They both attended our High Tea and the Area Day Luncheon and enjoyed them.  Three other retirees had hoped to come, but illness and a conflict prevented them from doing so.
