We are amazed and incredibly grateful at the great work and involvement of our local Team Trudeau volunteers from the Brantford-Brant Federal Liberal Association (BBFLA) and the Liberal Commission Clubs. Big thanks are in order for the exceptional work done all year round.
In 2018, our local Liberal volunteers organized the following successful events and activities:
- Over 40 Liberal Days of Action, with local volunteers reaching out to thousands of Brantford-Brant voters on the phones and at their doors about the positive work the Trudeau government has been doing for Canadians.
- Over a dozen well-attended volunteer info sessions to gain new volunteers.
- Seven successful fundraising events, including a trivia night, a dinner social and socials with MPs Lloyd Longfield, Raj Saini, Salma Zahid and Hon. Filomena Tassi.
- Two more well attended community forums: one on Agriculture in Burford with special guest MP Lloyd Longfield joined by 3 local panelists, and one on Pharmacare in Brantford with special guest MP Raj Saini also joined by 3 local panelists.
- Booths staffed all day long by local BBFLA volunteers at five community fairs: Six Nations Bread and Cheese, Springtime in Paris , Canada Day, St. George AppleFest and Burford Fair!
- A team of BBFLA volunteers surpassed raising over $1500 by their team members to support local charities helping at-risk youth and the homeless in the Coldest Night of the Year walk.
- Our Senior’s Club hosted workshops on elder abuse and environmental sustainability.
- Our Youth Club continued to recruit new members and be active in community engagement.
- Our Women’s Club continues to be the most active Women’s Club in the country! This year they’ve hosted 12 monthly breakfast socials, a packed International Women’s Day Dinner with six special guest speakers, a very well-attended forum on cannabis with several panelists (and many municipal leaders in attendance), and a BBQ Social with special guest MP Marco Mendicino!
The combined attendance across all these events above (separate from the fair attendance) was well over 1000 people!
It is because of all this work and outreach that our riding Federal Liberal Riding Association has been recognized as one of the most active and productive Liberal Riding Associations in the country! We will continue to believe in community outreach, year round, every year!
This is great progress and our volunteers love what they’ve been doing, but as Justin Trudeau has said many times before, Better is Always Possible!
That’s why we want YOU to join us a volunteer and at our upcoming events and activities!
No matter your previous volunteer experience, everyone is welcome. Think just how much more we can accomplish with additional skills and ideas added to our existing volunteer team!
