Wishing everyone had a pleasant holiday break in December and good fortune for 2018.
Our first of four meetings for 2018 is set for Monday Feb 26 at 5;30 PM. We have a new venue for this year. The Holiday Inn on the Esplanade in downtown Sydney.
As usual the meetings will run an hour with speakers starting at 6: 00 PM.
Over the past two years we have been able to give to eight organizations in the local area that are doing very valuable and worthwhile work. We hope to continue this into 2018.
We have a core group of about 50 men who contribute every meeting. We would like to increase this number so please feel free to spread the word and invite any friends/colleagues to attend.
See you all on Monday, Feb 26th at the Holiday Inn.
Happy New Year and welcome back to the 100 Men Cape Breton group!
Our first year is now in the books, with donations having been made to four worthwhile local organizations.
There have been a few hiccups along the way, but we plan to get things going more smoothly for 2017!
To that end, local company AG Research has agreed to help us with communication to members through our updated website, Facebook, and email communications. We thank them immensely for their efforts.
We have four confirmed dates for the upcoming year, which you can mark on your calendars now. We have deliberately avoided the summer months as many people are away on vacation:
Time: 5:30pm -7:00pm
- January 23
- March 20 Rescheduled to April 3rd 6 p.m.
- June 19
- October 23
Location: Casino Cape Breton (George St., Sydney) for all four meetings
Many thanks go to casino management, who were very helpful in our last meeting and have agreed to host us for the next four meetings of 2017.
Now that a year has passed, it’s time to bring back past recipients for a short update on how they were able to use our financial help. Chester Borden of the Sydney-Whitney Pier Boys and Girls club (our first recipient in 2016) will give a brief chat prior to our usual agenda.
In addition, a representative from AG Research will be there to briefly explain what they do and how they are helping the 100 Men group.
We have a number of local organizations coming forward, so there is no shortage of worthwhile causes to contribute to in the coming year!
We are actively looking for more members so please spread the word, perhaps by just forwarding this website or word of mouth with friends, colleagues, etc.
We will send out a reminder email the week before the Jan. 23rd meeting, and then one more on the day of the meeting.
We hope to see everyone on Jan. 23rd at the Casino, 5:30-7:00!
