The KARE Girls Club, a branch of Alberta Women’s Insitutes cut paper dolls to help out the United Church Women with their Child Poverty Project.  There are 70,000 children in Alberta living in poverty.  The UCW wants to bring this fact to the attention of the government.  To get their attention the UCW will go the Legislature on November 20 with the 70,000 paper dolls, one for each child living in poverty in Alberta.
A week ago, Robert and Karen Cameron joined their offspring to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary and a couple of family members’ birthdays.

Peter and I have had an exciting and interesting five days in Ottawa.  I attended the executive meeting of the Federated Women’s Institute of Canada.  We toured the Parliament buildings, sat in on a session, met with staff members of the Status of Women and Environment, toured Rideau Hall and were present at the cenotaph for the November 11 Remembrance Service.
