There was a good turnout of returning and new members for our opening coffee party on Thursday, October 18. A slide show highlighted the recent Garden Tour and representatives of the numerous Interest Groups were available to answer questions and help members decide what they would like to become involved in this year.
Thank you to our Special Events co-ordinators, Jean and Susanne for the delicious treats and to our Membership co-ordinators, Marilyn and Lynn, for the work involved in making this a successful evening.
Twenty members of the Book Exchange Interest Group met at the home of June Boudreau last night for the Annual Wine & Cheese AND Book Selection Party. Thank you to June, Mary Bould and Nancy McNaughton who are the organizers of this popular group which has five sections with twelve members each.
As we discussed the more than 40 books suggested in order to select 12 to be read during the year, we enjoyed the delicious sweets, savouries and beverages provided by our hostesses.
Thank you also to Irene Hiebert who gave us interesting and valuable insight into a number of the selections on the list.
