The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg was saddened to learn that Past President Shirley Halayda passed away on February 6, 2018. Shirley was a dedicated and distinguished literacy leader who made a difference to our organization. She served as RCGW president from 1983-1984 and mentored many RCGW volunteers over the years. We invite you to offer condolences or memories for Shirley's family.
Meetings are open to all members. Please consider attending!
