Two of your Executive Members of the White Rock/Surrey chapter had the pleasure of attending the recent Newcomer’s Club Xmas Tea Toy drive. April Lewis, Director of Communications and Ramona Kaptyn, Director of Events Planning are all smiles as they pose for the camera. Ramona is the Vice-President of the White Rock/South Surrey Newcomers group and will be President in 2011.
Hundreds of unwrapped toys were collected for the local Atira Transition house for women and children fleeing from domestic violence. The toys are for the kids and there were also wrapped toiletries for the mums. This is an annual event and in fact is done Canada-wide.
April will again be the Newcomer’s Club guest in January 2011 when she will speak to the group about CARP and Zoomers of course. The title will be: Newcomers, New Year, New Life!
What an amazing community we live in!
