Guest night

The Great Escape: A Canadian Story

Ted Barris, author of The Great Escape: A Canadian Story, tells us the real story of the brains and brawn behind the escape from Stalag Luft lll during WWll.

Members are welcome to bring a guest - male or female.


Beginning her presentation with a humorous self-introduction, Elaine Charal  entertained our group in the hilarious style of an accomplished comedienne. Elaine is a certified graphologist and professional speaker who analyzes handwriting to help companies with their hiring decisions, team building, and communication.  She told us that by examining  the nuances of an individual's pen strokes, one can evaluate character strengths and talents. As a bonus both at the beginning and end of the meeting Elaine offered individual handwriting analyses to many of our group.


The University Women's Club North York was featured in an article in the North York Mirror. The article, written by Kelsey Cheng, begins "It’s a welcoming network for women to come together to develop their interests, discuss current affairs and most importantly, to empower each other."
