Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Day will be marked in Yorkton Sept. 14, following unanimous approval by City Council at its regular meeting Monday.

Eileen Harvey, president of CFUW Yorkton appeared before Council to make the request, as a follow-up to a letter to Council.

“The Canadian Federation of University Women/Yorkton Inc. (CFUW) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of women university graduates in the Yorkton area that is concerned with promoting women’s equality and education. For over six decades we have actively participated in public affairs through education, advocacy, and action. CFUW/Yorkton Inc. is affiliated with the Provincial, National, and International Federation of University Women,” detailed the circulated letter.

“The government of Saskatchewan will be proclaiming September 14, 2014, as Canadian Federation of University Women’s Day in Saskatchewan,” added Harvey.

On Saturday, September 13, 2014, the Canadian Federation of University Women/Yorkton Inc. will host a reception at The Godfrey Dean Art Gallery, 49 Smith Street E., Yorkton, at 9:30a.m..

“CFUW Day will serve as an ideal opportunity to help raise awareness of our organization and its commitments,” said Harvey.
