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!
Our Commission Clubs were well represented at the 3rd Annual Equity in Politics Conference that took place Laurier Brantford on May 24th. The all-day conference was organized by a Committee of students and teachers at Brantford College Institute (BCI). Inspiring talks were given to local students by leaders such as Six Nations Chief Ava Hill and Cambridge MPP and Minister of Natural Resources Kathryn McGarry. It was great to have the speakers also interact with the students in attendance and those at the booth.
Our Commission Clubs were very pleased to have presence at the May 22nd 2017 Six Nations Bread and Cheese Festival. We had very engaging conversations and are grateful to our Commission Club volunteers and everyone who stopped by our booth. Thank you to all involved!
Another fantastic turnout for great conversation at our latest monthly breakfast social on May 6th. Thank you to all who came out and a very special thank you to our special guest speaker, Charlie Kopczyk, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Why Not City Missions and Why Not City Youth Centres. Everyone greatly valued hearing about the life-changing work that Charlie, his wife (and co-founder) Sue and many volunteers do with these organizations to help at-risk youth and the homeless in Brantford-Brant.
With the help of Club members and supporters as well as those in our community, we donated 37 homemade and store bought blankets on behalf of the Brantford-Brant Women's Liberal Club to Nova Vita, a local women's shelter. We even had a blanket come all the way from the west coast! Thank you to all who donated and thank you to our Executive Vice-President Heather MacDonald-Moore who led the drive!
