Saturday: Creatively United

We’re almost ready for Saturday’s festival at Royal Bay Secondary School. Visit us in Room A, at Table 70, to learn more. Donate, and your name’s entered into a draw!


Committee Meetings

Next weekend, we’re setting up and exhibiting at Creatively United for the Planet, so no meeting’s planned for April 14th.

On Thursday, April 21st at 7 pm, the Committee will meet at Bill and Linda’s. Others are welcome with advance notice to Linda.

Driving Ahead

We’re growing, and delighted that a three-week furniture drive kicked off on Sunday, April 3rd at the Canvas Church on Bear Mountain. Thank you to Pastor Austin and Henry and Yvonne Van Boxtel for their leadership of this initiative.

We hope to cross off many items on our list with the Canvas Church’s help, then make a more focussed ask later via the website and/or email.

Committee Meeting & Email Notifications

On Thursday, March 31st at 7 pm, the Committee will meet at Bill and Linda’s. As always, others are welcome to attend; however, we ask that you notify so that we can arrange a larger venue if necessary and advise of any changes.

Our website continues to expand. We want you to know when there are new blog posts, and for us to improve our outgoing communications. Today, an Email Subscription form makes its debut in this post. This tool provides safeguards – double opt-in (first fill out the form, then reply to an email), and easy unsubscribing – to benefit and protect us all.

Come one, come all, sign up, and share this with your network. Kindly direct questions or concerns to the Webmaster via


Committee Meetings

On St Patrick’s Day, the Committee will meet socially at an undisclosed location, and talk over WRSG business. On March 24th, we’ll meet at Laurie’s. All from the WRSG are welcome at committee meetings, but for the 24th, please email in advance. We’d be only too happy if we have to change venues to provide enough space, but would want to let you know!

Donate to WRSG Online

We’re really excited to announce the creation of an online Giving Group for the Westshore Refugee Sponsorship Group! The Chimp platform enables you to make donations online using a credit card and receive an immediate tax receipt, or commit to regular, recurring donations.

Can you be the first to visit WRSG on Chimp and donate?
