Welcome to CHW Vancouver
CHW Vancouver President, Stephanie Rusen
Leaves are falling and winter is almost upon us. Channukah is around the corner!
On October 4th the opening luncheon held at the Richmond Country Club was a great success. Ninety women gathered to enjoy a delicious lunch as we honoured our four Vancouver National Presidents, Naomi Frankenburg z’l, Judy Mandleman, Rochelle Levinson and Present National President Claudia Goldman. Although tinged with sadness due to the recent death of Naomi Frankenburg z’l, nonetheless we saw the pictures and heard the words of these remarkable women.
Kol Hakavod to Catherine Espstein and Sylvia Cristall for a job truly well done!
Armadillo Shopping Event
October 20th was a fun day and evening at Armadillo on Granville. The prices are great, and more important, it was a terrific evening trying on clothes amid the laughter and help from everyone. We all found outfits that were unique, stylish, and comfortable. Many thanks to Fay Jensen at Armadillo for the warm welcome and to Randi Winter for organizing it. We will certainly do this again!
This will be our fourth annual chocolate fundraiser. The Pesach Chocolates made by Galerie au Chocolat in Montreal come beautifully packaged ready to give or enjoy during the holiday. The chocolate is so good that in my home, my husband and I have hidden the tin each year just for ourselves. I will have to get a second tin to share! There is an assortment of options: dark, milk, with nuts to suit all palates. Details to follow!
