Ordinary to Extraordinary

Real Life Stories Book Available for Purchase Online

After a very successful book launch at the FWIO Provincial Conference in Pembroke, the book, Ordinary to Extraordinary: 150 Stories as unique as the women who lived them, is now available to purchase online or by contacting the FWIO Provincial Office at 905-662-2691 or fwio@fwio.on.ca.

The stories are real-life stories that WI Members contributed for a project to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. The 150 stories were selected out of 350 submissions. The stories range from a single incident to a full life story; from ordinary life to tragic events; from the horrific to the humorous. There are stories of living as a child in another country, immigration to Canada, growing up in Ontario, meeting the love of their life, and the struggles of life – fires, floods, and tornadoes. Some stories recount the role of the WI in their lives; their pride of accomplishments and support for their community.

The price per book is $25 + $1.25 tax (plus shipping, if applicable).  The length of the book is 300 pages, with some photos and an index.
