At its Annual General Meeting held on Friday evening at the Johnville Community Centre, Townshippers’ Association took the opportunity to name the Outstanding Townshippers and Young Townships leader nominated for awards this year. The award for Outstanding Townshipper went to the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Sherbrooke and District. One of 100 branches across the country promoting equality, social justice, fellowship and lifelong learning for women and girls, the local chapter is celebrating 50 years of community involvement this year. With a focus on education, the CFUW has continuously pushed for local resources; Interest groups within the CFUW have raised funds to donate to local organizations as well as international humanitarian initiatives, and its affiliated Lampe Foundation supports local students pursuing studies in a variety of fields including health, agriculture, science and vocational training with annual bursaries and scholarships.
