At the Niagara Food Festival, there’s a tried and true recipe that makes for a great party.

June is a popular month for weddings. If you’re getting married this month, you no doubt have many exciting details to discuss with your spouse-to-be. But after you get back from the honeymoon, you’ll want to have another discussion — about your finances. It might not sound glamorous, but couples who quickly “get on the same page” regarding their financial situation are actually taking a step that can help them immensely as they build their lives together.

For the past 7 years the Club has hosted potluck dinners in member’s homes to ‘break bread’ together and to support the education of girls in Afghanistan. The goal, of raising funds to finance the hiring of a teacher for girls, has been repeatedly achieved by members and their dinner guests. Since beginning this project, the Club has supported the hiring of 11 teachers ($700 a teacher for six months salary).
