On April 30 2017 the Women’s Committee put on a dinner for a women’s shelter in Surrey.  This dinner was attended by many women and their children.  We were able to provide women with purses filled with items the use on a daily basis.  The women were very grateful for the committee.  We want to send a big thank you to the volunteers that helped out at the dinner and for the members that donated purses
