The 2019 – 2020 AGM was held via Webex on Thursday, May 20. There were 42 members and one guest in attendance. The guest speaker, Danielle Edwards, was one of the 2019 scholarship recipients. Danielle spoke briefly and then answered our many questions about her experiences as a first year student in the Education program at Queen’s University. We were particularly interested in knowing about the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had and will continue to have on her studies.
Thirty two members took part in the first online general meeting. Some of the participants are pictured here.
Some of the executive met via Webex on Tuesday to pre-plan the first ever online general meeting.
The general meeting which was to be held on Thursday, March 19th has been cancelled.
Thank you to the CanLit Dinner interest group who were the hosts this year for the delicious annual luncheon.
One of last year’s scholarship recipients, Jaunita Da Silva, spoke to us briefly about what receiving the scholarship has meant for her.
Before the short general meeting we were entertained by four talented students from the Michael Faulkner School of Music.
Yikes! January 7th already: our January 16 luncheon is on the horizon.
AND the deadline for purchasing tickets, Monday January 13, is fast
approaching. As you can appreciate, we need to have firm numbers in order to complete our preparations.
If you are planning to attend and still need a ticket, on-line purchase
is an option, or you may contact Pauline Lingard.
