Each year we have a CWL Provincial Convention. This year was our 97th and it was held at Credit Union Place in Summerside on May 3 and 4th. Approximately 173 people attended. We have close to 1,900 CWL members on the Island.
Each year on both the Friday evening and again on Saturday morning we ask “Who is attending a CWL Convention for the first time?” This year on Friday night there were 19/20 first time attendees which is monumental. We are really proud of this number. Each first time attendee is given a small red rose to symbolize their first Convention.
This picture is of the ladies on the Executive, who come from Tignish right to St. Peter’s Bay. Our National President Anne- Marie Gorman was also in the picture. Fr Brian MacDougall is our Spiritual Advisor, but he had to leave early so he is not pictured.
