Happy Bucks
President (and President-Elect) Joan Hunter was thrilled to hear collect our loonies in exchange for our tales of gladness and gratitude.
Scott Vetter oversaw the 50/50 draw which saw Hector Allen win the draw, only to see the prize slip away as he drew the 10 of Hearts rather than the Joker.
Maria Saracino, an exceptionally talented artist, worked with the Wabano Center and St. Marguerite d’Youville public school to create a magnificent and symbolic art piece. The 8' x 8' St. Marguerite d’Youville “Living History” mural is done in relief using polymer clay. All teachers and students were involved in creating the artwork, under Maria's watchful eye, training and guidance.
It was also the unveiling of Maria's polo player on horse, which will be auctioned as a fundraiser at Polo in the Park Ottawa.
Monique and Jenelle display the new team shirts for Polo in the Park Ottawa.
President Joan ended the meeting promptly at 1:30pm.
