Notice biographique

In 1986, with close to 60 members, the Francescan Society was renamed the Francescan Outreach Society, and registered as a charitable trust. It continued the regular fundraising and outreach activities of the organization until 1989 when, after more than twenty years assisting numerous North Shore organizations, and individuals, the group ceased operations.

Nom du producteur

Notice biographique

In 1967, two members of the West Vancouver Anglican church, St. Francis-in-the-Wood formed the inter-faith female fellowship group, the Francescan Society. Commonly known as The Francescans, the stated purpose of the group was "to share time and talent to provide outreach in the community and to raise funds for the community."

The Francescans provided financial assistance to many North Shore organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Emily Murphy House, North Shore Association for the Physically Handicapped, North Shore Adult Daycare Centre, West Vancouver Daycare, and West Vancouver Community Help and Information Centre. The group's popular fundraisers included spring luncheons, strawberry teas, rummage sales, dinners, and special events. In the early 1980s, The Francescans also ran the refreshment garden during Community Day in West Vancouver.

In 1986, with close to 60 members, the organization was renamed the Francescan Outreach Society, and registered as a charitable trust.
