To all those that helped with the very successful Sip 'N' Sing Iced Coffee House... THANK YOU! Attendance was great... support was fantastic... and performers were phenomenal! This was the third Sip 'N' Sing Coffee House organized by one of our local Liberal Commission Clubs in the last year and the most successful yet! We had a packed house (including many who were attending their first Liberal event), raised a substantial amount for the Margaret Campbell Fund (which will help support electing more female Liberal candidates in Ontario) and enjoyed and showcased some amazing talent! We had impressive local performers that included highland dancing, barbershop quartet, solo singers, wind instruments, acoustic guitar, indigenous folk music, Broadway musical numbers, along with some great jazz from Kitchener's Tim Louis (who was also supporting our event as the LPC(O) Southwest Region President).
Another great crowd at our July 8th breakfast social! Thank you to all who attended and a very special thanks to our guest speaker, Jeff Burnham, who gave a very informative talk on the need for greater support for libraries in Indigenous communities and the importance of supporting this cause.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Canada Day 150! Thank you to the over 10 volunteers who helped out at our Commission Clubs booth and the hundreds who came by our booth for great discussions! We gained many new supporters and volunteers who we look forward to seeing again soon! Happy Canada Day to all!
Our Clubs are proud to support Brantford Pride! June 17 was a fantastic day to cap off Pride Week with the 6th Annual Pride walk and Pride in the Park! A great way to spend the latest Liberal Party National Day of Action! Thanks and congrats to all the organizers involved in this year's Pride! This was our 4th local community event in the last month where our Commission Clubs have had a booth (Six Nations Bread and Cheese Festival, Equity in Politics Conference and Springtime in Paris before today).
Thank you to the over a dozen local volunteers of all ages who helped out with our community outreach for our June 11th Afternoon of Action despite the incredible heat! We greatly appreciate all who went door to door and the many who still came out to our two call locations on a Sunday afternoon.
We had a fantastic time at Springtime in Paris! We had great conversations and found many new supporters and volunteers! Thank you to our volunteers from all 3 Commission Clubs who gave their time to help out and to everyone who took the time to stop by and talk with us! This was the 3rd community event our Commission Clubs have had a booth at in just the last 2 weeks. We look forward to the next one!
Another fantastic turnout and great conversation at our latest monthly breakfast social on June 3rd. Thank you to all who came out and a very special thank you to our special guest speaker, Cheryl Moore, Executive Director of Stedman Community Hospice. Everyone greatly valued hearing about Cheryl's experiences and the extremely valuable work being done at the Hospice. We appreciate all who were able to make it while the Springtime in Paris festival was going on, where many of our volunteers were busy with our Commissions booth at the same time.
Thank you to the many volunteers who came out for the May Day of Action organized by our local Liberal Commission Clubs! It was a huge success thanks to you! We had a large number of door to door canvassers and callers of all ages. We were again pleased to see several volunteers who came out for the first time since the 2015 campaign and others who were coming out for their first time to volunteer with the Liberal Party! Together they reached many hundreds at the doorstep and hundreds more over the phone over the course of the full day! We found new Liberal supporters, several new Liberal volunteers and gained valuable feedback about the Trudeau government. A huge thanks to everyone involved!
