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.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

- These will be the first elections held under our new bylaws which were approved at the AGM last November. 2017 WCS Constiution and Bylaws
- We will be electing three directors: President; Secretary-Vice President; and Treasurer.
- All directors will be elected for a two year term which starts on January 1, 2018.
- Chairpersons of Standing Committees also need to be elected. The number of Standing Committees has expanded with the shrinking of the number of Directors. The jobs didn’t disappear they were just reassigned
ANNUAL BAKE SALE
Come and join our society for our sweetest fundraiser of the year November 22, 2017 – after the AGM. Please consider making/baking something for the sale. Think Christmas. Cookies and bars, preserves, tarts, spiced nuts – whatever gets your tastebuds tingling.
Please bring your goodies wrapped and packaged in suitable sizes, ready for sale
complete with price tags. (Pricing not too high and not too low – what you think is right). For the benefit of those who may have allergies. If your baking contains nuts, please label it.
When you arrive at the meeting just place your baking on the sale tables. The other ingredient we need for a successful sale is customers to buy the wonderful assortment of goodies.
Consider bringing a friend. It will be a fun evening.
Have you ever wanted an original piece of framed calligraphy by Carl Rohrs? or a Connie Furgason painting with lettering, or a collage piece of Gemma Black’s work (could be a print and not original)? Anita Boyd-Johnson donated several pieces of her collection to WCS when she downsized and moved to the Island. Some of them will be used for door prizes at our WOOL 2018 conference. The executive decided that we will have a silent auction with a minimum bid (yet to be determined) for 10 of the pieces to be held after our AGM along with the Bake Sale.
A poster will be sent out with more information later.
There will also be a selection of brand new Chai mats in various sizes. Quite a few are black mats which goes really well with our Exhibition Theme for the year. There are a few new Exhibition frames and some smaller wooden frames which will also be for sale.
