A huge thank you from Femme International to everyone who helped make the Concert & Afternoon Tea fundraising event at the North Grenville District High School a success! Our wonderful musicians, the “big baNG” African Drummers, directed by Heather Lance, and the folk/celtic trio, “Fiddlehead Soup”, provided us with absolutely delightful entertainment. All our amazing volunteers, led by Kristen Black, ensured that things ran smoothly, and our guest speaker, Sabrina Rubli, gave an inspiring presentation!
A special thank you to NGDHS Principal, Derek Cole, for providing the venue, and to lour local businesses: Array Hair Studio, The Bodhi Tree, B & H, Food Basics, Independent Grocer, and Rideau Roastery for generously donating gift certificates, food and great coffee. “Many hands make light work!”
Last, but certainly not least, a most heartfelt thank you to everyone who took time on a warm Sunday afternoon to come and support the work of Femme International. Together, you have helped to make a huge difference in the lives of young women, providing them with health education and hope for the future.
