WRYM's October 2022 NetletterRead Now
On the 12th of October, 2012, the Windsor Residence for Young Men finally opened its doors after 13 years assessing the need, devising the program, raising the funds and lobbying the public as well as municipal government. Many prejudices had to be overcome.
Today our program still meets projections made with, remarkably, a consistent annual success rate of 90% and is being adopted in other communities. So …
WE’RE HAVING A PARTY NEXT WEDNESDAY !!!
The Caboto Club has resumed its charity pasta dinners, dine in or take out and is charging $20 per meal with children under 5 free. We have secured next Wednesday, 5OCT22, from 4-7pm, for WRYM’s 10th Birthday Party with Jim Crichton as MC.
I hope to see you there.
As before we will have baked goods for sale as well as draws for our gift card tree and the like. Additionally this year we have an online silent auction for the two water colour paintings shown in the attachment. At present the results are as follows:
BIDS to date (September 28th, 2022):
“Ditch Lilies #1” - $50
“Ditch Lilies #2” - $50
The Pair (both) - $150
ANSWERS to questions, (most recent at the top):
-There is significance to the names. These are my favourite flowers. They are very hardy and beautiful, growing wild in the ditches of our county from which many have been transplanted, and now multiplied, to fill the gardens of my home. They remind me of “our guys” and their potential if properly cared for at WRYM.
-Including the frames, both are the same size: approximately 9” x 11”.
-In the photo attached, “Ditch Lilies #2” appears reddish. It is actually more yellow and orange.
-Yes, I have learned to be a two fisted painter. While feeling has yet to return to my hands, I can now resume a favourite pastime.
