The Laurentians may be known for their amazing ski resorts, but it is a beautiful area in every season. We recently met up for Laurentians Lunch Bunch, where AWCM members enjoyed friendly conversation and the fresh mountain air.
Join us for our next Lunch Bunch meet-up in the Laurentians or West Island! Please contact AWCMontreal@gmail.com for further information.
The Jean Talon market is a Montreal gem and our members went treasure hunting! We got to know the market and its amazing vendors through a social scavenger hunt.
AWC Montreal members enjoyed a gorgeous stroll along the waterfront in Lachine.

Christina Strache - President
"Our AWC@RMH (American Women's Club @ Ronald McDonald House) was such a great success despite the Pandemic! With the Generosity of our Members we were able to supply meals for the Residents of the Manoir Ronald McDonald for Four Months! Volunteer work and raising money for charities is what makes me happiest. I can't wait to do more of that with this great group of Women!"
Cathy DeChambeau - Co-Vice President
"I have enjoyed many AWC activities over the last few years and now that I am retired and have the time and energy, I am happy to be of service. I am really looking forward to making new friends and helping newcomers find a friendly group to meet others."
Nena Dyer - Co-Vice President
"I am looking forward to working with the Social Service committee once again. Giving back to the community has always been a huge part of our club, so I am looking forward to continuing that commitment, as well as exploring new ideas and projects. Reconnecting with old AWC friends, and making new friends! Looking so forward to socializing with everyone!"
Jessica Cebalt - Recording Secretary
"Thanks for allowing me to serve on the board! I joined because I want to be in the mix: I want to get to know everyone and make friends and have fun, all while doing a little good for the community at the same time!"
Yelena Creamer - Membership
"I am looking forward to being on the team helping to create the club experience, and to introducing the possibilities the club offers to potential new members and helping them to feel welcome."
Kathleen Marie O’Connor - Treasurer
"I am looking forward to meeting others and participating in activities that give back to the community. I'm also looking forward to getting out and socializing with club members and also hope that there are some socializing events that include husbands/partners once COVID restrictions are lifted."
Carolyn French - Financial Records
"Serving on the board this past year has been a bright spot for me by giving me a chance to connect with others here in Montreal and plug into a community that actively volunteers and has fun activities. I'm looking forward to meeting up with those I've yet to meet in person, and joining more book club meetings and outdoor activities. I'm excited to work with the new board members to welcome the new year and continue the work."
Brenda Cutler Douglis - Communications
"As you know I moved here during the pandemic. At a time that might otherwise have been very lonely, this club has provided me with connection and purpose, and I am so grateful for that. In the year ahead, I look forward to getting to meet in person both with board members old and new, and with club members at a whole range of events. I look forward not only to socializing together but also to us all working together for the good of this club and the good of our community."
Welcome to all of our new board members!
