Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Kincardine celebrated its 25th anniversary on Tuesday, August 16th at the Best Western, Governorís Inn, Kincardine with 22 members and former members attending.

Five members have been with the group since the first meeting was held in September, 1990:  Mary Wightman, Kathleen Dunn, Jackie Clements, Sylvia Kirby and Pauline Whelan (a member of the steering committee). Also, on the original steering committee was former club member June Emond. In recognition and appreciation, these six ladies were presented with wrist corsages.
