On October 28th 2015, the Lyric Theatre Singers performed "The Best of Broadway" to a full house for MLUWC’s annual fundraising event. The proceeds of this evening will enable MLUWC to award scholarships toward post secondary education to three deserving West Island women, as well as, several smaller bursaries to adult education students. Thank you to everyone who participated in making this possible.
MLUWC raised over $1,700 for their community outreach efforts at the December meeting. Linda Ricketts handed the cheque to Wendy Gariepy of the West Island Mission. After listening to the lilting sounds of the McGill Conservatory Youth Choir, the members enjoyed a warm seasonal punch and a selection of sweets and savouries.
