We have cards from Loblaws that will work at any Loblaws store. This includes No Frills, Zehrs, and Superstore to name a few
Cards are worth their exact value, i.e. if you buy one for $50, you now have $50 that you can spend at the store
The SSSG receives %5 of the cost of the card, and that money goes into our operating budget
You can buy cards (available in $25, $50, $100, and $250) with cash or cheques
You all paid a fundraising fee of $75 to the school, and you can offset that cost by purchasing cards-for every $100 card you buy you will be refunded $5, up to the full amount of your fundraising fee. The card sellers will record your purchases and the bookkeeper, Tracy Jewell, will refund you at the end of the year
If you pre-purchased cards, they are available from the card seller at the first group class of each month
You can buy cards on behalf of friends, coworkers, and family if you wish
Grocery cards will be available at all SSSG Group Class Saturdays
Grocery cards are also great donations to make to charities who feed people such as:
-Guelph Food Bank
-Children's Foundation of Guelph Wellington Food and Friends program
-Lakeside Hope House
-St James the Apostle's Anglican Church Breakfast program and others.
Grocery cards available through the SSSG at Large Groups rehearsal & at the Snowflake Concert or by contacting Janet Johnson:

Canada Homestay Network seeks home for 15 yr old violinist
My new employer is
Canada Homestay Network and I learned that we will be receiving a 15 y/o German female student in March who has played violin since she was small. She is interested in joining an orchestra while she is here. I don't know too many other details yet but when I saw that I knew I needed to contact you! Do you have any ideas on a family that might be willing to host this student? Some basic requirements for the host are that the family must be English speaking at home, must have a bedroom with a bed and desk for the student only, must be willing to spend time with the child and eat supper together most evenings. Also, all adults in the household must have a clean Criminal Record Check with a Vulnerable Sector Search. The student would, of course, be attending high school full time. There is a stipend available to the family to help with the hosting costs.
I feel like this would be such a neat opportunity for one of the Suzuki families. I would totally do it if I had a spare bedroom! Can you help?
Please feel free to contact me via email or on my personal cell phone 519-835-0635 if you have questions.
