Have you voted on Aviva? Have you voted every day? Wednesday is Day 3 of this semi-final round of voting, and as of Day 2, our Food Bank Project was running #6 over all. We need your votes; we need your friends’ votes; we need your distant relatives’ votes….
                So tell everyone you know about the Food Bank’s needs. CHBC has now run two stories on its news programs, showing foods stacked to the roof, volunteers falling over each other to get around in the cramped space, people standing around outside waiting to get in.
                And if the old Winfield School gets sold, the Food Bank won’t have even these inadequate facilities to work out of.
                On your computer, go to https://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf19456
                Register. And vote. If you’re afraid you might forget to vote, send a message to newhomeforthefoodbank@gmail.com so that you can get an e-mail reminder every day

Sip, Savour, and Sample planning

                Last Thursday’s meeting was devoted to advance planning for next spring’s big fund-raiser. The name changes each year – for 2015 it is “Sip, Savour, and Sample”.
                Bernard and Brenda Dewonck are chairing the many committees that make this event possible.
                For example, Gord Lugrin is gathering the companies that will display their wares. He estimates that we may have 15 wineries, 6 cideries, several cheeseries…
                Sharon Downward and the other Interior Savings members, along with a collection of their tellers, will handle receiving the tickets and taking payments for auctioned items.
                Judy Guido has taken on the task of coordinating volunteers – especially those who join us from the wider community.
                From now until April 18, the night of the S,S,&S event, one meeting a month will be devoted to the developing plans and commitments.
