President’s Message

President’s Welcome to CFUW Nepean 2022-2023

CFUW Nepean members are members of CFUW Ontario East, CFUW Ontario, CFUW National, and GWI

Welcome to CFUW Nepean for 2022-2023. When each member of the executive was asked at the June cross-over meeting what hopes she had for the upcoming year, our VP Cindy Hyduk replied “FUN!” Which of us cannot hope for that.

We have been through two grueling years of COVID difficulties and limitations, and, much as we hope that is coming to an end, it seems that more variants and waves are ahead. We are, however, CFUW women, and together we can face whatever the future brings.

I know you echo my most grateful thanks to members of our outgoing executive, and welcome all of our new executive.

In the material you are receiving with this letter, there is a list of upcoming meetings, and with the engaging speakers that Sue Carter has arranged for us, we know that each and every one of these meetings will be fun. Our first three meetings will be in person, held at Bells Corners United Church. Winter meetings will probably be on Zoom, a precaution of both health and winter driving conditions. After March, we will decide the best way forward.

Also listed are the activities organized by our members, again sources of fun for all. Two of these activities began during COVID – the Environment Action Committee as a response to our resolution on limiting single use plastic, and Friday Morning Chat and Chair exercises, an opportunity for members to stay healthy and in touch.

As we begin this 2022-2023 year, I wish all of you good health, positive attitude despite the turbulence around us, and, as Cindy requested, fun.

Joan Conrod, President, CFUW Nepean
