Fall Notes

You have until November 25 to order Epicure meal kits described in the poster. The order form was attached to Kaarina Tulisalo’s email on November 18.  It also contains details about payment and delivery.  You can also click here for the order form and here for Kaarina’s instructions.

Instead of our usual Charitable Trust dinner in early December, we will have a Charitable Trust walk on December 6.  Members will meet at 5:30 p.m. at the Vimy Ridge Memorial on Ferguson Street and participate in a candle-lighting ceremony at City Hall.

seasonal lights tour, allowing members to drive themselves around town on December 16 to see other members’ outdoor Christmas decorations, is in the works for December instead of our usual get-together.  You will receive a list of addresses by email.  We will continue our annual tradition of collecting gifts for Transition House and True Self.
