Welcome to CHW Toronto
It’s hard to believe I’m writing my last message as Toronto Centre President. As I reflect on the last two years, I am very proud of what we have accomplished. To make significant impact, one needs a strong team, and I certainly had that. With the help of Tova Train, Stephanie Caplan, Gayla Schwartz, Barb Rosenstein, Debbie Goldberg, Jodi Schechter, Fran Luborsky, Shelley Fine, Elayna Latsky, Louise Tenenbaum, Jennie Blitz, Laurie Koch, and Gail Cooper, I know we made a difference.
During my term, I attempted to make myself available as often as possible and have had the good fortune of speaking at many meetings, and attending many wonderful Chapter and Centre events. Toronto members are organized, committed, and creative; I was so fortunate to see the results of their fundraising efforts. I was also lucky to work with many supporters outside of CHW, such as Selina MacDonald from Living Life on the Avenue and Zach Hyman from the Toronto Maple Leafs who led our 2017 CHW Walk to Protect Children.
In the last two years, I have attended so many wonderful events! I was happy to participate in the recent Pioneer Tea on June 3, an event which honoured our two oldest Chapters, Israeli and Beth Gan. Both Chapters were celebrating 70 years of friendship and dedication to CHW. What an amazing turnout of members and their families! Thank you to all Chapters who organized Annual Campaign events. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
I am proud to be part of a CHW family legacy, and I hope we can continue to motivate our children to support CHW projects and programs. We, as CHW members, must continue to tell our friends, family and colleagues what we do and why we do it.
In closing, I thank all of you for making my experience as Toronto Centre President so rewarding.
