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).
