University Women host banquet

Comments

(L-R) Local University Women's Club member Cheryl Andrist presented the Mary Rose Boyer Memorial Scholarship to Shalini Vijay.

The local chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women raised money for their local efforts, and celebrated the value of literature, during their annual Author's Banquet on April 27 at the Days Inn.

Cecile Wehrman-Krimm, who is the editor of the Crosby Journal in North Dakota, and the author of “The Brothers Krimm: the Bank Robber and the Hero,” was the guest speaker. Wehrman-Krimm offered an in-depth look at the life of Jimmy Krimm, who was a prolific bank robber in western Canada and the mid-west U.S. for more than a decade.

Among the banks he robbed was the Weyburn TD Bank in 2007.

Jimmy Krimm committed suicide after he was tracked down by police, following a heist at a bank in Williston, N.D., in September of 2009. His death happened near Wehrman-Krimm's farm in northwest North Dakota.

Wehrman-Krimm contrasts Jimmy's life with that of his brother, Rob Krimm, who served his country for 20 years as a drummer with the U.S. Marine Corps band, and as a mechanic with the U.S. Air Force.

Wehrman-Krimm and Rob Krimm were married last fall.

The other highlight of the fundraiser was the presentation of the Mary Rose Boyer Memorial Scholarship to Shalini Vijay, a Grade 12 student at the Estevan Comprehensive School. Vijay is planning to study mechanical engineering at the University of Toronto in the fall.

This year marks the first time that the bursary has been presented in memory of Boyer, who passed away in January. At the time of her death, she was the president of the local University Women's Club.

The author's banquet also featured a silent auction with dozens of books.
