This event is cancelled until further notice

The UWCNY Annual Book Sale to benefit the UWCNY Scholarship Fund will be held at the March 30 General Meeting starting at 7pm. NOTE EARLY START TIME.

Please bring your books at 6:45.

We will be following ‘Jill’s rules so please bring your recent, less than 5 or 6 years old, gently used books on March 30. We sell them for $5 each, so they must be in good condition. As Jill would say, this is not the time to clear out your basement of old thrillers and romance novels.”

Check your bookshelves and help support our Scholarship Fund.

Success! Purple Scarf Sale

November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month. The purple scarf symbolizes the courage it takes a woman to leave an abusive situation. We sold out all 80 of the purple scarves on hand at the club’s October meeting. The money made from the sale of these scarves goes to the Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses.
