CWC Thanksgiving Dinner

People enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner on Oct. 7. Special thanks go out to Su and Al Nakash, who graciously hosted about 40 people at their lovely home. Guests enjoyed a meal of turkey, ham, vegetables, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. Maree was responsible for the wonderful pie, and several CWC members cooked other sumptuous dishes.

First meeting and giving thanks

Hello again! It was a great summer here in Jamaica, what with celebrations for the 50th Anniversary of Independence and the Olympics. Now we are all back to school, work and whatever routines we all engage in. The CWC's first meeting of the 2012-13 year was held Sept. 11 at the Canadian High Commission and it was full of plans for this year. We formally welcomed our incoming President Mrs. Barbara Matalon, Secretary Kate Chappell, Treasurer Britta Spiring, Outreach Co-ordinator Rachel Yee Chin and Fundraising Co-ordinator Wendy Lee. Plans are now afoot for lots of activities this year. We also celebrated our award from outgoing High Commissioner Steven Hallihan and wife Cathy Hallihan, who presented us with an award for service from the Canadian High Commission. We will miss Steve and Cathy but await the arrival of the new High Commissioner with excitement.
Our next event will be the Thanksgiving Dinner on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. at Su Nakash's house (6 Carmel Ave.). Tickets are $1,500 for members and $2,000 for non-members and all are welcome. We look forward to a wonderful meal in a beautiful location.

CWC Annual General Meeting

Tuesday, June 12, marked the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Women's Club. It was a wonderful affair, held again at the Jamaica Yacht Club. About 40 people were in attendance, including outgoing Canadian High Commissioner Steve Hallihan and his wife Cathy, who are leaving Jamaica in several months. 

After people gathered and had a chance to watch a video of past fashion shows, the meeting kicked off with the national anthem and then reports from the Outreach Committee, the treasurer and the President. Then, a teary formal farewell was bid to the Hallihans, who in turn, thanked the CWC for their service and presented the group with an award. The Hallihans were thanked for their hospitality over the years, including the use of the High Commission, the Thanksgiving dinners and the general kindness they have extended. After a prayer to bless the food, people dug in to a wonderful meal, including salad, steamed vegetables, potatoes, chicken, fish and pork. Chocolate cake was then served as people listened attentively to the guest speaker, Burchell Whiteman. Mr. Whiteman, a pillar among Jamaica's leaders, discussed Vision 2030 and implored people to think about where we want the country to be and act accordingly. These remarks gave people a lot to think about as they said their goodbye to one another for the summer.
