Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month, January through November except July and August at the Jericho Hill Centre, 4196 West 4th Avenue in the West Art Room. The business meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. and is followed by the program.
Library takes place from 7-7:30 p.m. before the meeting.
Jericho Hill Centre Accessibility
There is an accessible entrance to our meeting room that can be used. We have a key for the classroom door off our room which leads to an outside door. Arrangements need to made with someone from the executive to let them know what time you plan on being at the outside door so someone can come and let you in.
To get to the correct driveway, don’t turn into the regular parking lots but go past them and take the driveway to the loading dock on the right.
Dirve your car halfway along this driveway towards the loading ramp, then turn left and go over the curb – and amazingly there is a parking area. The double doors are right there where you wait for someone to get you. It is lighted. I know this is quite the process but they have no plans to fix the elevator.
Please phone or email Sherry or Wendy or Renée the day before to make arrangements.
AGM, Bake Sale and Envelopes
This is our Annual General Meeting. This is a non-election year! The meeting should be brief. Notification of any special issues will be in the October Bulletin.
This is our annual Fund Raiser.
Bakers: Enjoy yourselves and bake up a storm. What you make is up to you. Jams, jellies, etc. are great too! Bring your goods for the sale pre-packaged and pre-priced.
Eaters: Isn’t that all of us! Bring cash!!! Why not bring a friend too and they can get some homebaked goods as well.
A number of our members have participated in Envelope Exchanges and have received some wonderful envelopes in the mail. Come and see what they have received and learn a little more about exchanges. Wendy organizes an exchange each January and perhaps you might like to participate next year.
