November Meeting has gone Virtual

I think we can all agree that it has been quite a year! Here we are about to embark on our second year together as 100+ Women Who Care and we have already persevered through some interesting challenges. From Mother Nature’s major snow storm last November, forcing us to postpone our inaugural meeting, to the ongoing battle with COVID-19, we have confronted this adversity head on and triumphed to donate $38,000+ to worthy causes in our community. The final tally from our August meeting for the Rotary Splash Pad project was $11,150. WELL DONE!!!  

The committee has brainstormed many options to find the best plan of action for our upcoming meeting scheduled for November 25, but with the current COVID-19 gathering restrictions in place, there was no option available for us to physically get together as a group, so we are proceeding with a virtual version. We hope that everyone will embrace this temporary version of supporting 100+ Women Who Care’s continued commitment to community. 

The following steps outline how the November “meeting” will proceed with important dates included:

100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More make a big splash with their donation of over $10,000 to The Temiskaming Rotary Splash Pad

Unusual times call for creative solutions, and in order to continue their commitment to the community, 100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More held an outdoor, COVID-friendly event on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at the waterfront near Riverside Place.  Of our 134 members, approximately 50 members attended in person while others sent proxies, etransfers, cheques and cash to ensure a successful event. 

The beneficiary chosen, by an overwhelming majority, was the Temiskaming Rotary Splash Pad project.  This exciting project is inching ever closer to their $522,000 goal and the donation of $10,600 from 100+ Women Who Care, leaves less than $30,000 to fundraise!

Einas Makki, President-Elect of the Rotary Club of Temiskaming Shores & Area said, “The Rotary Splash Pad will allow our local kids to further enjoy the New Liskeard waterfront and will leave them with incredible childhood memories of growing up in Temiskaming Shores. On behalf of the Rotary Club, we thank the 100+ Women Who Care members for their generosity. Women are the anchors of our community, and we are humbled by their kindness. The Rotary Club is so close to its fundraising goal. The finish line is in sight! We look forward to opening the Splash Pad in 2021.”

100+ Women Who Care Committee Chair, Laurie Wilson, said, “The momentum continues.  We’re thrilled to have supported another local, immediate need. With new members joining tonight, this fabulous multi-generational group now boasts a membership of 134 exceptionally impactful women who care deeply about making their community all that it can be.  Just this morning, I saw a quote by Winston Churchill that sums up this inspirational group of women. ‘We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.’”

Although we weren’t able to meet in May, our members still made a significant impact in our community by donating over $5,000 to the following causes and others:

– The Temiskaming Foundation COVID Relief Fund

– Temiskaming Hospital Care Close to Home

– Kathie Peters Kind in COVID Food Drive

– The Salvation Army Food Bank

– The Royal Canadian Legion

– Zack’s Crib

– Northdale Manor

Members commit to giving one hour of their time each quarter, to learn about potential local beneficiaries nominated by members, and vote to select the winning recipient of their $100 contribution. The combined giving of each member’s contribution makes a powerful impact locally. Even with the complications of COVID-19, in 8 months, over $38,000 has been donated to local need.

100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More would like to thank their sponsors, Brownlee Equipment, CIBC Private Wealth Management, Grant Propane, Scotiabank, Scotia Wealth Management and Wilson Chevrolet Buick GMC, as well as in-kind sponsors, Temiskaming Printing, Pedersen Construction and CJTT FM. Also, thank you to the New Liskeard and Haileybury Golf Courses who have generously donated their facilities to host the quarterly meetings. With their support, every dollar raised goes directly to the chosen beneficiary.

The next meeting of 100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More will be held Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at a venue compatible with the COVID-19 guidelines at that time.

May 27, 2020 Meeting Cancelled, but the Generosity of 100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More Continues

Due to continued restrictions and for everyone’s safety, 100+ Women will not be getting together at the Haileybury Golf Course for their quarterly meeting on May 27th. 

In an email to members from the steering committee, it was suggested that if possible, members should make their usual $100 donation to a cause that speaks to them since this Covid 19 crisis has affected so much and so many, indicating that it is associated with the 100+ Women Who Care initiative.

Some members may prefer to add their May contribution to their August contribution.

We also understand that some members may have some financial hardship because of COVID-19 and if so, members are not obligated to make their donation for May and we hope that there will be better times in the near future for all of us when we meet in August, if restrictions allow.

The Committee thanks its members in advance for their continued support of our community; they need us now more than ever. 

Stay safe and wash your hands!

Temiskaming Shores, ON, December 5, 2019

Our first event was an overwhelming success.

Members of the 100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More Committee met Thursday, December 5, 2019 to present the $11,000 in donations to staff and residents at Northdale Manor

100+ Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More donates $11,000 to Northdale Manor.

After Mother Nature’s winter storm resulted in a rescheduled first meeting, 100+ women gathered at the New Liskeard Golf Course on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 for the inaugural meeting of 100 Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More. The first beneficiary of this inspiring new organization is the Northdale Manor and they will receive $11,000.

The Northdale Manor is a not-for-profit retirement home that was originally established in 1956 by the United Church and sold to Northdale Manor Corporation for $1 in 1979. The Manor is in need of dining room chairs for the safety of the residents at a cost of $40,000. The Frog’s Breath Foundation has committed $10,000 for the purchase of the chairs, if the remaining funds were raised by April 2020. With the annual Manor Hearty Lunch in April netting $20,000 and the $11,000 received from 100+ women who care, they will receive the funds from Frog’s Breath and the dining room chairs will become a reality. A presentation on behalf of Northdale Manor was made by Nancy Pedersen, a member of the volunteer board of directors of Northdale Manor. When the results were tallied she said “I am personally thrilled to be able to be part of this amazing group of women and extremely thankful that Northdale Manor was chosen to be the recipient of this very generous donation.”

The entire steering committee of 100 Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More were overwhelmed to have over 100 women attend the inaugural meeting, but not surprised, knowing that we live in an amazing community where raising $11,000 in ONE HOUR for local need is achievable! This fabulous multigenerational group of women is already making a significant local impact. Laurie Wilson, chair of 100 Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores and More, says “last night is proof positive that as strong as we women are in our own right, together we are stronger.”

Members commit to giving one hour of their time each quarter, to learn about potential local beneficiaries nominated by members, and vote to select the winning recipient of their $100 contribution. The combined giving of each member’s contribution makes a powerful impact locally. As Helen Reddy so aptly proclaims, “I am woman hear me roar, in numbers too big to ignore”!

100 Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More would like to thank their sponsors, Brownlee Equipment, CIBC Private Wealth Management, Grant Propane, Scotiabank and Wilson Chevrolet Buick GMC, as well as in-kind sponsors, Temiskaming Printing, Pedersen Construction and CJTT FM. Also, thank you to the New Liskeard and Haileybury Golf Courses who have generously donated their facilities to host the quarterly meetings. With their support, every dollar raised goes directly to the chosen beneficiary.

The next meeting of 100 Women Who Care Temiskaming Shores & More will be Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at the New Liskeard Golf Club.
