Hi! My name is Norm Reed, a Kamloops resident and chemistry professor at TRU. With the help of my wife Judy Reed, we have established a “100 Men Who Care” group in Kamloops. This is modelled after other “100 Men Who Care” and “100 Women Who Care” groups throughout Canada.
As you may be aware, Kamloops already has an active 100 Women Who Care group. Check them out at www.100womenkamloops.com.
We have established a parallel group for men in Kamloops, we need support, and so we are inviting you and your friends to join us in being part of our third meeting for 2015 on Monday, November 30th, at the Double Tree Hotel at St. Paul St. and 4th Ave. in Kamloops. The Double Tree has graciously donated us a meeting room at no cost. The bar will be open and members can bring their drink into the meeting. The meeting starts at 6:30 pm. The hotel restaurant will be putting on a Chef’s Special for anyone wanting to have dinner prior to the meeting.
We currently have close to 50 members, so we are looking for more!
Our inaugural get together on April 27, 2015 resulted in $5,000.00 being raised for the Ashes to Dust Mountain Bike Camp sponsored by the Kamloops Phoenix Centre. Sian Lewis from the Phoenix Centre reported back to us on the camp at our second meeting for 2015 on September 14th, were we saw some great photos of the camp mountain bikers in action! At our second meeting we raised $4,000.00 for the Big Little Science Centre, and they will be reporting back at our next meeting on November 30th. Please consider joining us for the opportunity to donate to local non-profit organizations as nominated by our membership!
