For the Townsman
With all the season’s festivities, it is somewhat difficult to take time to think about who the Woman of the Year 2015 will be. However, time flies and before you know it the Friday, February 13, deadline will be upon us.
For 32 years, the CFUW Cranbrook club has awarded this prestigious title to 36 women, all of tremendous caliber, all serving the East Kootenay, all very dedicated to their families and the community in which they live. There are many more women who deserve recognition for their efforts and commitments to good causes, and the Cranbrook Club is asking for YOUR help in deciding who should be Woman of the Year 2015.
Please visit the Woman of the Year link on our website (www.cfuw-cranbrook.com) for a copy of the poster and other pertinent information.
The Cranbrook Club has 12 members locally and is a member of CFUW National, a non-political, voluntary, self-funded, bilingual and non-governmental organization of women university graduates in 110 clubs across Canada that works to improve the status of women and girls, education, peace, justice and human rights.
CFUW holds special consultative status at the United Nations (ECOSOC) and belongs to the Sectoral Committee of education of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO. CFUW is the largest of 61 national affiliates of the International Federation of University Women (IFUW).
