Welcome to CHW Calgary
CHW is celebrating its 100th birthday. The world has changed immensely over the last 100 years and women have continued to step up to the challenge of raising awareness and funds to support the needs of children, women and families in Israel and in Canada in areas of education, health and security. This year, we are celebrating the accomplishments of the numerous women and their families who have made a difference in so many lives through their support of CHW initiatives and projects.
We held a successful mini-bazaar on Sunday, May 14.
On Sunday, September 10th Calgary Centre welcomed the community and special quests from out of town to a celebration of Canadian Hadassah- WIZO’s 100 years of passionate volunteer programs and services for CHILDREN, Healthcare, and Women in Israel and Canada. There was lots of walking down memory lane over the last year and the event celebrated all the wonderful people who have made this organization vibrant and successful and all the people who have supported CHW over this time as well.
So much planning and coordination went into the event and we thank: Sandy Adler, Linda Barron, Claire Berman, Aviva Cheuk, Edith Dimant, Jeff Eichler, Sandra Eisner, Lily Fixler, Marilyn Fraiberg, Hanit Jacobs, Genya Knopov, Debbie Krygier, Gail Ksienski, Marilyn Libin, and Helen Steinberg. And thank you to our tea pourers: Doreen Abugov, Jean Barron, Leona Bell, Becky Hapton, Lily Joffe, Doreen Kline, Leah Saltman, and Pat Smolensky. A huge thankyou to the sponsors and hosts for the celebration: Lauren Bell, Jeff Eichler, Marilyn Fraiberg, Marilyn Libin, Sandy Martin, and Bally Hoo Concepts Inc and Rose Zivot and family.
This event saw the launch of a book called Through Calgary Eyes. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked on putting the stories and pictures together and special thanks to Linda Barron, Betty Sherwood and Ruth Ullman for organizing and editing the publication.
The party is continuing as we look forward to the Annual Luncheon and Games Day on Wednesday, October 18th at Canyon Meadows Golf Course. We are excited to announce that Len and Faigel Shapiro are offering a matching support for all proceeds raised will go to Hadassim Children and Youth Village. See you at the party.
Wishing everyone much happiness and good health in the new year!
