RAWQ Card Fundraiser

Published Feb 28, 2023

During the pandemic, a number of adjustments were made to the daily life at the Regional Association of West Quebecers.  While we met these challenges as they occurred, it was not possible to hold some of our traditional fundraisers and events.  Three years ago, we opted for a "COVID friendly" fundraiser in the sale of greetings cards. 
These cards were from photos submitted of scenes from the Outaouais and we were pleased to offer the printing contract to a local business.  After only a few submissions of photos in the first year, we had over 100 submissions in 2022. 
Unfortunately, due to the closure of the offices during the 3-year period, as well as not being able to hold our usual events, sales have not been as high as expected and we still have an inventory of cards for sale.  We have been selling them at $20 per package of 10, although individual cards may be purchased for $3.00 each.  There are several scenes from which to choose.  The cards either have a "Merry Christmas" or "Season's Greetings" inscription or are blank.  The blank ones are ideal for many other occasions throughout the year. 
We are asking RAWQ members to please support this initiative by buying one or more packages.  If anyone is willing to sell on behalf of RAWQ, even better.  The cards are currently available at either our Aylmer office (181, rue Principale Unit A-11) or our Shawville office (111 Victoria Avenue). Cards can be shipped to you for a fee of $4.00. We can accept cash, cheque, and e-transfer.

To place an order, please write to us at oec@westquebecers.ca or call 819-682-9602.
