The 4th annual presentation tea was held on March 31, 2019 to celebrate the gifting to individuals and organizations from the fundraising efforts of the Women of Oliver for Women (WOW) group. This year recipients were honoured with WOW’s version of the WOW Family Feud. Teams were required to compete by answering questions like WOW’s Mission, who they support in the community, what community services have been done, what type of fundraisers and many other questions pertaining to the WOW group. Fun was had by guests, recipients and members. Winners of course were acknowledged.
The WOW members were delighted to serve the strawberry shortcake, cookies, tea and coffee for the many senior couples that were celebrating more than 50 years of marriage, held at the Senior Centre on Sunday, Feb 17, 2019.
This award of $1,000 is now four years old. It was created to be given to a woman who has decided to further her education to enrich and improve the quality of life for herself and her family.
WOW was delighted to present the 2018 Education Award to ROCHELLE NEWSTEAD, who is in the final semester of the Practical Nursing Program, and will graduate in May. She lives in Oliver with her husband and four children. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
