Carolyn Day accepts donation from Fred Kuntz

The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Southport received an early Christmas present on Saturday, December 10th (2016).

Fred Kuntz, Manager of Bruce County Corporate Relations and Communications for Ontario Power Generation (OPG), presented the donation of $750 to Carolyn Day of the CFUW.

"The donation will go to support our annual Speakers Series," said Day, "particularly, for the ones that are always open to the general public for free.  OPG has been a wonderful supporter of CFUW's Speaker Series over the years and their support is very much appreciated."

The group meets at the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre each month.

CFUW also supports quality education and life-long learning for young women and effects positive change for women throughout the world through their special United Nations status.  Each year, Southport CFUW also offers scholarships to young women pursuing post-secondary education.

The organization is always looking for new members and, contrary to popular belief, a university degree is not a requirement.  It is a national, non-profit, non-partisan group that promotes equality for women and girls and their meetings are also social events where members learn from each other and enjoy a friendship.

In addition to a monthly meeting, there are several sub-groups that range in activities from gourmet dining to 'day-tripping' to local venues and an issues group that discusses  relevant political and social issues and the book club held at members' homes.
