Castor Women’s Reading Club makes donation

Donated equally to both Theresetta and Gus Wetter School libraries

By Christine Nichols

As part of Canada’s 150th birthday celebration, Castor Women’s Reading Club chose to do a project to mark this momentous occasion.

Over the summer and fall, each member tried to collect 150 cents from as many people as they could. One member even collected 150 cents from 150 people!

They pooled their collections which totalled $684.40, and donated equally to both Theresetta and Gus Wetter School libraries to encourage future readers.

The club is in its’ 83rd year of operation, as it was organized in 1934.

Fifteen women comprise the membership, meeting twice a month from October until May.
