No matter the season, a pasta dish never seems to disappoint. Whether a baked ziti casserole or spaghetti simply tossed with garlic and olive oil, pasta is versatile and makes for a crowd-pleasing main every time.

Letter to the Editor:

We are thrilled to have the Senior Director for Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan speak at our May meeting. For over 10 years Welland and District Unit members have been holding and attending Breaking Bread luncheons and dinners raising money to support CW4WAfghan to ensure Afghan girls would be educated.

We were motivated to learn at the time that $700. Canadian dollars would provide a teacher for a year. Over the past 10 years we have raised approximately $10,000 for this worthy cause.

Don’t miss out on this great deal- all six concerts for $145 tax included.   That’s about $24 per concert! But, this great bargain is only available until May 31st.  Many of these performers appear at other venues for twice the price.  However, if you miss the May 31stdeadline, the price will revert to our regular price of $160. Take advantage now!
