THE WOMEN'S GROUP

Once again our group had a most successful year with many accomplishments.

We meet on the 4th Thursday of each month, at 1:30 pm....all ladies of the congregation are invited.   Meetings start with devotions and the Lord’s Prayer, followed by the Secretary's report and the Treasurer's report. We then carry on with the business at hand to discuss any upcoming events and ideas for fundraising.  We have several guest speakers attend over the year with very interesting topics.

Our meeting is followed by a light lunch with tea, coffee and a social time.

Our biggest community fundraiser for the year is the Mother's Day High Tea and Vendor Market...Thank-you to the entire congregation for supporting our third event.  The proceeds this past year went to Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation and St. Stephen United Church.

We host the following functions every year:
Spring and Fall Rummage Sales                                                      Christmas Pot Luck Dinner
Pancake Supper                                                                                          Candy Cane Kitchen
Plant Sale

This year we hosted the lunch for the Rich Harmony Singers, The Reception for the Refugee Families,  

Several Funeral Receptions.  We also shared with Tansley Women's Group for their Christmas pot luck
We visited the mock up rooms for the new Joseph Brant Hospital Tower
We collected money for Shifra House, by filling baby bottles with cash
And we had our end of the year lunch at Mother Tucker's

Some the charities that we support are:
Sleeping Children Around The World                                             North Burlington Christmas Dinner
Potatoes for the Wesley Dinner in October                                    Paid the plumbing bill                 

Paid for landscaping at the front of the church                                   
Our donation to St. Stephen United Church for 2016 was $4,900.00
Our donation to the Bridge House was $425.00
We bought Walmart Gift Cards for the Refugee families totalling $300.00
We bought a new Christmas tree for the church hall

On behalf of the St. Stephen Women's Group I submit this report for 2016.
