Welcome to CHW Vancouver
CHW Vancouver President, Stephanie Rusen
The spring blossoms are here, and we are busy at CHW celebrating our 100th year! The annual campaign is underway.
We are organizing some fun events so check your inbox for further details!
I am pleased to announce that Kate Bevan-Smith has joined us as CHW Vancouver Centre Coordinator. Kate is from New Zealand via England and came to Vancouver in January 2017 because she always wanted to experience living in Canada! Be sure to drop by to meet Kate.
March was the beginning of our Annual Campaign, where we reach out personally to all our donors. During March, April, May and June dedicated CHW canvassers will be calling you to donate to this year’s Annual Campaign. The Division heads this year are Bev Corber for Top Gifts, Lori Barer and Debbie Lewin for Gesher, and Debbie Rozenberg for Telethon. Many thanks to all our canvassers and to you for your generous support which ensures the needs of our projects can be met!
In March Bev Corber and I were delighted to have tea with the CHW ladies who live at the Weinberg Residence. It was very enjoyable schmoozing with these women who have been so active in CHW for many decades. It was a treat to hear their wonderful stories.
April 19th was the Meducation with Dr. Joel Epstein as the guest speaker on the topic of ‘What is My Mouth Trying to Tell Me’. Besides being an accomplished speaker, Dr. Epstein is also related to 2 members of the Vancouver Executive as he is Toby Rubin’s uncle, and Debbie Rozenberg’s cousin. The evening was much enjoyed by all.
AVIVA Games Day
May 11th is the annual AVIVA Games Day at the Richmond Country Club featuring Bridge, Canasta, Scrabble and Mah-jong, plus something new! There will be tables for those of us who want to play the games from childhood. It will be a fun packed day with lunch, a fabulous dessert buffet, and silent auction. Be sure to call or email Kate at the office to book your seat for the fun, games, and great food!!
The Centennial necklaces have arrived from Israel! These unique mementos were crafted by Aura Designs for CHW, including a special CHW Centennial logo charm. These beautiful necklaces are on sale at the office for $100 each, a lovely way to celebrate CHW’s 100 years. Quantities are limited so be sure to place your order before they are gone.
Donations for Women in Vancouver
CHW Vancouver, together with Jewish Family Services continues to donate beauty products for women at the Jewish women’s shelter in Vancouver. Please continue to collect new beauty items, either regular or sample sizes, and bring them to the office. The women we help appreciate your generosity.
