Pink Ladies are keen to see men join the committee




After more than 30 years of being known as ‘The Pink Ladies’, the fundraising arm of the Lilliane Brady Village (LBV) retirement home is considering a name change.

The LBV Pink Ladies Committee was first established in 1991 and provides ongoing funding to assist with purchasing of goods and equipment to help improve the quality of life for LBV residents.

The group also provides valuable volunteer services and support to residents and staff.

The idea of a name change was among the items discussed at last week’s annual general meeting.

Committee member Cairo Haronga said the name change was suggested in an effort to attract men to also join what has been mostly an “all female” committee.

At the meeting, Wendy Anderson was elected as the group’s president with Mel Muhs taking on the vice president’s role.

Leah Mitchell was elected as secretary with Cairo Haronga filling the treasurer’s role.

Therese Hill, Patrice Garland, Dianne Stephens, Michelle Gillette and Ann-Marie Murphy were elected to the general committee.

The committee welcomes any interested men and women to join them.
