In 2001 the Chloe Callender Awards were established to recognize her exceptional lifetime of work as an educator, community advocate, and leadership trainer. Each September we have partnered with the Caribbean Canadian Association of Waterloo Region to hold the Awards of Excellence where scholarships are awarded to local Black youth who have involved themselves in the Community and are pursuing post-secondary education in Canada. *To date, scholarships have been awarded to over 125 youth*
The Ladies’ Tea is held annually in June at the Historic Green Gables Guest House in Kitchener at which we recognise and honour the efforts of our members and local Black women. The Tea is now in it’s 27th year.
