June 1, 2021

We have been making some changes to our website. Take a few minutes to explore! For a complete list of recipients from previous meetings, visit our Charities of Choice page.

Check your inboxes or our Facebook page for the details on tonight’s online meeting at 7 p.m. We are excited to hear from each of our nominated organizations and look forward to seeing each of you!

Presenting tonight are:

Port Perry Hospital Foundation

Brock Youth Centre

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Durham

For those of you who are “Zoomed Out”, we will say this: we feel you. We would love nothing more than to gather again in person. And we will as soon as it is deemed safe. But we know that the charities have expressed a need which is why we have kept this going as best we can. We would love it if you could take the time.

June 2020 – Greetings from home!

I hope this greets you happy and healthy and that you’ve had the chance to enjoy some much needed sunshine. 

I think we are all looking at the silent heroes that are keeping the fabric of our communities together in a new light right now. Grocery clerks, truckers, health care workers, teachers…..we are grateful for them all. These amazing individuals all deserve way more than a mere “thank you” .

Which is why, though we are saddened that we can’t get together for this quarter’s meeting, it has been heartening to learn that some of you have made donations to our  local food bank and our local hospital foundation. 

If you haven’t had time to send a donation…..it’s not too late. 

You can drop off a cheque to any of your favourite frontline charities and we will be certain to deliver it. They can be dropped off to Lana at Port Perry Print (201 North Street) or to Margie at Big Brother and Big Sisters of North Durham (15585 Simcoe Street).

In the meantime, stay safe. 

February 5, 2019: Congratulations Port Perry Hospital Foundation – $3,842

Another great meeting. Another great charity chosen.

Congratulations to the the Port Perry Hospital Foundation for their successful pitch last night. We had three very strong pitches and, though the votes were close, the appeal from the local hospital for a contribution towards their cancer care equipment seemed to speak to us. Well done!

A very special thanks must go out to our new members who joined us last night, as well as to our present members. We are strong because each of you carve this out of your busy schedules each time and show up to support these worthy charities. Let’s keep it going as we edge towards the $100 000 mark. We can do this!

For those who were unable to attend, please drop off your cheques at Janet McGhee ‘s office (1595 Hwy 7A).

October 2, 2018: Congratulations Emmanuel Community Church Youth Drop in Centre – $3,935

Another great meeting. Another great charity chosen!! Congratulations to the the Emmanuel Church Youth Drop- In for their successful pitch last night. The Drop-In has become a draw for many local teens who have been searching for structure – both social and personal – in our community. It was heartwarming and inspiring to hear the contribution that one small group has made to local youth.

Thanks go out to Dave Robinson from Scugog Remembers for bringing the posters that will be displayed throughout Scugog commemorating the contribution of local heroes on the 100-year anniversary of Armistice. They, along with the projector that will be used in the library during the celebration, will make a lasting impression of the generosity that a few women can make. Powerful!

Finally, thank you to everyone who made it out to the meeting last night. We are strong because you show up and you support these worthy charities. Let’s keep it going because our numbers make us stronger.

June 5, 2018: Congratulations Scugog Remembers – $4,667

Congratulations to last night’s cheque recipient…….Scugog Remembers! Scugog Remembers is a local initiative that was set up to commemorate the contribution that our local vets have made to war efforts for the past 100 years. They will be directing their funds towards several celebrations that will kick off this fall. It is truly our honour to support them.

Special thanks also go out to our other nominees – Nova’s Ark and the NICU unit at Lakeridge Health – for their eloquent campaigns. Those of you who attend (and who have pitched before) know only too well just how tough it is to get up there and speak from your heart and last night was no exception. Everyone should be commended for the fabulous jobs that they do time and time again.

Thanks again for supporting these worthy charities. We cannot do it without you. And welcome to our new members! Thanks for being a part of the generosity wave.
