LET"S BE THE CHANGE!

Cultivating Change is a free event designed by a group of women who want to encourage Peterborough’s women to think more about politics. The goal is to inspire others to get involved in local issues that matter to them and their families and understand the change that can happen when women work together. This non-partisan event will take place on Thursday April 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Ashburnham Reception Centre (840 Armour Road, Peterborough).

All are welcome to attend this event, which will include light food and refreshments, a moderated panel discussion with special guests, information session on the upcoming elections, and time for sharing experiences and networking.
