Heroes Among Us
Heroes Among Us was held Sunday, September 17th at the Shaughnessy Country Club, and was an amazing success with a sellout crowd. We honoured 3 women: Courtney Cohen, for her work with Roses Angels; Lori Yelizarov for the Noah Yelizarov Hockey Tournament in memory of her son; and Helen Coleman for her long CHW history, starting with her mother, Rose Soskin, in 1916. A special treat was Past National President, Sandy Martin, who was one of the guest speakers.
It was such an exciting event! Courtney was youthful energy, Lori was poignant, and everyone fell in love with Helen. The program was excellent, with most interesting speeches and stories. The Honorees’ families were so excited to be part of the day. Kudos to Toby Rubin and her committee for such a wonderful day.
Walk to Protect Children
Sunday, September 10th, was our annual Walk to Protect Children at Spanish Banks. The weather co-operated as we walked at least 10,000 steps with much laughter! Afterward, we enjoyed a picnic lunch with much schmoozing, and extra laughter, in addition to raising funds. Many thanks to Debbie Lewin for organising the event. Be sure to join us next year! Our page is still open if you wish to donate.
