The view from the end of September

The Saugeen Shores Refugee Fund had a successful weekend fundraising at Your Independent Grocer in Port Elgin. We raised $1100 over two days, thanks to diligent volunteers who ran the table, handed out info cards, and explained to many people what we’re doing.

A presentation at Tolmie Memorial Presbyterian Church also resulted in $500 of donations, which is a wonderful addition to the fund.

We’re currently just over 1/4 of the way there, which is fabulous… but let’s not lose the momentum! We’re on a roll here, and need to keep working toward the 20K goal.

THIS WEEKEND (October 3-4) we will be fundraising at Port Elgin’s famous Pumpkinfest, at a table set up in front of the Chamber of Commerce, so please stop by to see us there. We’re still looking for someone to help cover the Saturday afternoon shift, 1-3 pm, so let us know if you can help.

OUR NEXT MEETING is scheduled for Tuesday, October 13 at 8 p.m. at the Resource Room of the United Church in Port Elgin. Hope to see you there!
