History Biographical
Sarah Fischer was born in Paris, France, moved as a young girl to England, where she attended grade school. At the age of 13 she and her parents (1909) came to Canada and they settled in Montreal. In Montreal, Fischer was employed as a long distance operator during the day and at night took free singing lessons at the Monument Nationale. In 1917, Fischer won the Strathcona Award which enabled her to go to London, England on a three-year scholarship at the Royal College of Music. She left Montreal in 1919 and with a few interruptions spent the next 21 years of her life abroad. She sang in major opera houses in Europe, gave numerous radio recitals and concerts and achieved good reviews. She was considered a most lyrical soprano with a beautiful appearance and good acting ability. In 1940 she returned to Montreal. For the next 35 years, until she died on May 3, 1975, Fischer spent most of her time orgnanizing the Sarah Fischer Concerts where young musicians got a chance to appear in public and show their talent. Many prominent Canadian musicians got their start with these concerts.

Jewish Junior Welfare League
History Biographical
The Jewish Junior Welfare League was founded in 1926 by 26 young ladies who were dedicated to the ideal of community service. The league's objective from the start were: A. To train and educate its members as able volunteers. B. To sustain by means of volunteer service and financial assistance a number of worthy projects eeded by the community. C. To keep members enlightened on all issues within the scope of the social, economic and cultural welfare of the community. Projects over the years included volunteering in hospitals, schools & developing recreational programs for young and old, healthy and sick. The league reached its zenith in the 1960s with a membership of 300. By the mid 1970s problems began to beset them, however. Their ranks became depleted as more and more women chose to go to work, and many of the needs they were filling were taken over by government agencies. June 19, 1984 at the annual meeting the decision to disband was taken.
