Leha Marshall and Crystal Wood spoke to the club on Monday 20 September about their new enterprise U Grow Girl. Both women are survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and have determined that their role now is to help other survivors of abuse overcome their trauma. To that end, they are working on setting up a retreat called Time to Heal, which will explore different therapies to help in the healing process. They plan to hold their first retreat next spring in Vernon and, in time, on their flower and haskap berry farm in the Shuswap. 
Since becoming an insurance broker in 2003, Rosy has worked with various agencies, finally landing at CapriCMW in 2018 and serving the commercial and business community. Rosy spoke to the club on Monday 13 September about the insurance industry, which is not as flexible as it used to be as it updates its policies in our changing world. She suggested that it is wise to create a relationship with a broker and to get more than one quote from him as he does get a variety of quotes from different companies.
