Campaign Update

I am not sure how it is June has been a busy first half of the year!  When I wrote in February that I planned to continue the Forty 4 Change blog, party style, work with charitable organizations and manage the mayoral campaign for Fred Connors, I really had no idea what that would mean.

Slowly but surely I will update you on the events of the last few months.  In the meantime, you can visit the campaign progress on our new website.  We officially launched the site on Monday, June 4th, with a one minute seven second campaign video that addresses voter apathy in the Halifax Regional Municipality and encourages citizens to get engaged.  

Lots of exciting things still to come!

While we're on the topic of community involvement....Canada Day and the 4th of July are less than a month away!  What will you do to celebrate?

{Event} A Night to Honor Mothers

The 3rd Annual SHYM Mom's Day Cabaret was a beautiful night and a special way to celebrate being a Mom.  

The full posting on the event will come later but I wanted to wish all mothers everywhere a special Happy Mother's Day {especially all the mothers in my life}.

Watch for the full posting on the SHYM event, Nana's 95th birthday and the upcoming Armbrae Grandparents' Day

{Upcoming Event} Another Chance to Support SHYM

Since the beginning of Forty 4 Change, almost 18 months ago, I have shared the details of my experiences with so many amazing organizations.  One that still remains near and dear to my heart is Supportive Housing for Young Mothers {SHYM}.

Earlier in April, SHYM made an exciting announcement...that they would be forging a partnership with the YWCA Halifax in an effort to further increase the resources available to the SHYM programs.

I am thrilled that the Director of SHYM, Wendy Fraser, asked me to participate in their upcoming Mom's Day Cabaret again this year!

This year's dessert table will be styled in sweet yellow, grey and white...and a bit of chevron!  So excited to create this fun table for a wonderful event.  

Tickets can be purchased at 902.465.2213
or simply purchase them at the door.

I just returned from an amazing trip to North Carolina where we celebrated my Nana's 95th birthday!  Watch for details on her fabulous birthday brunch.
