By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

In honor of International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8, the Lennoxville and District Women’s Centre (LDWC) is holding their annual ‘International Women’s Day Dinner and Celebration’ on Friday, March 13. It is an occasion that many women in the local community look forward to with around 100 attendees each year. This special event welcomes women from the community to bring their own wine, enjoy a nice meal, participate in a silent auction, and dance to the sounds of traditional music. The LDWC’S celebration also includes a different theme every year. This year’s theme is superstitions concerning women from around the world. Part of the evening consists of a bring your own wine and a fabulous meal. “The meal is always super good, it’s like a buffet, but a very good buffet,” said Lucy Levasseur, new Program Coordinator at the LWDC. “There are different menus so there’s not just one thing.” A silent auction will also take place which supports the initiatives and activities of the LDWC. “It’s fundraising for our organization,” explained Levasseur. “We use that money to offer other activities. It comes from the community and goes right back into the community.” See full story in the Friday, March 6 edition of The Record.
