Today at 2pm voting for the West End WE Choo$e Projects begins! If you live, or work, in the West End you are eligible to vote. You can vote online or in person at Gordon House.
Parents and students (over 12) will be able to vote in person at Lord Roberts Elementary in the office starting Monday January
Participants select and rank up to 4 favourite projects, and the projects with highest number of votes will win.
The Lord Roberts PAC is asking that participants choose the Ballot Item "The Christine Fretwell and Kathryn Gibbons Memorial Gift to West End Students" as their first choice.
Dedicated to the memory of Christine Fretwell and Kathryn Gibbons, two West End mothers who passed away recently due to illness, this memorial donation will directly support students at at Lord Roberts Elementary and King George Secondary School. With the support of the PACs, the funds ($10,000 each for both Lord Roberts Elementary and King George Secondary) will be distributed using simplified participatory budgeting model to help the youth of the West End more deeply engage and understand the participatorybudgeting process.
Beyond the funds that this brings, it is a wonderful way to celebrate Chris and Kathryn. If you did not have the chance to meet her, Christine Fretwell was a big part of our PAC for many years. Even in her last years of life she was an active part of our school community. This is a truly fitting tribute to her and her contributions to our school.
Please support this initiative by voting online or in person at the school.
Please share this with your friends and colleagues who live or work in the West End.
