WESTLOCK – When 100 Women Who Care Westlock last met Sept. 21, the members, as always, heard from three groups before voting by secret ballot their choice of who should get the funding.

When the votes were counted, the Alberta Centre for Trapping and Bushcraft, located on a former trapline north of Long Island Lake which is run by the Alberta Trappers Association, was chosen and received $6,800.

With this presentation the WWC has now presented a total of $214,050 to various groups in the community.

In November, they hope to up the membership once again, which fell off considerably during the pandemic. Organizers say this is a big renewal month for them and hope to bring their numbers back up closer to 100, or even more, as it was near the beginning of the program by in 2016.

The 100 Women Who Care concept is simple: each contributes $100 quarterly for a total of $400 per year, plus a small fee for administration. At each meeting members vote on their choice of three presentations. The successful group then receives the total funding for that quarter.
