BPW Sault Ste. Marie Celebrates 70th Anniversary

Women Office

The plans to celebrate our 70th Anniversary in Sault Ste. Marie were set aside to look after ourselves, family and friends.

A thank you to this community for your support over the years. We remember those who worked within the organization at provincial, national and international levels from Sault Ste. Marie.

A few highlights of working with other organizations in the community include bringing Buffy Saint-Marie to perform at Sault College, the setup of Women in Crisis, Public Safety Audit of the Civic Centre and Take Back the Night marches.

Our sister organization Business and Professional Women’s Club of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan USA donated two flowering crab trees that are planted on the Civic Centre grounds. Planted in 1976 to commemorate International Women’s Decade and friendship of the two countries.

BPW Sault Ste. Marie has supported bursaries since 1968 at both Algoma University and Sault College.

With community nominations, we have celebrated women of the community during the week of International Women’s Day for over 30 years.

Members of this organization over the years have contributed to the development of legislation and laws at the provincial and national levels. At the international level, BPW International has Consultative Status at the United Nations.

The members did not want to let this milestone anniversary pass without thanking our community for your support of this organization.
