A group of Grannies meets regularly to discuss books set in Africa, most of which are by African authors.

Memories of our Friends.
We are a determined, passionate, resourceful and fun group. Some of us are grandmothers, and some are ‘grand others.’
Fundraising is done through events such as our yearly African dinner and silent auction, and by making and selling crafts at local fairs throughout the year. Many of our members enjoy working together to make AIDS Angels, felted pictures and animals, or Christmas swags. Others prefer to work on crafts individually, or are happier organizing events, selling our wares at craft fairs, or undertaking administrative tasks. We encourage creative ideas for new events.

We hope to resume in-person meetings at Comox United Church, 250 Beech, in the fall. If this is not feasible, we will continue to meet via Zoom. Please check here later in the summer.
Glacier Grannies' meetings are a time for the entire membership to get together to celebrate successes, plan upcoming projects, learn about the work of the Grandmothers Campaign, and enjoy friendship and refreshments.
You are welcome to come to a meeting to find out more about us.
