It has been a long time since we have gathered, and we have had numerous requests from members to get going with a party. Our attempt at hosting a Sankt Hans Midsummer Celebration did not go very well. We have decided to try a little different format for our first event this year. We plan to hold a “no host lunch” on Friday, October 14, 1:00 pm at the Black Bear Pub which will be a social gathering to get the ball rolling. The pub has offered us a number of their favourite menu items for individuals to choose from and everyone will choose their own lunch and pay their own bill. The pub has asked us to let them know how many are expected so please give Carsten Krogh a call and add your name to the list. More information is available elsewhere in this newsletter or on the website.
We have had a number of requests also for a Christmas Party, so again, we are going to try a new format for this event at a different venue at which none of us will have to do any of the work involved in setting up, taking down, cleaning up, cooking, serving, etc. We hope you’ll like that, and we hope you’ll join us for that event. Watch for further details in the days to come and circle Friday, November 25 on your calendar now.
For the past several years, we have planned on hosting the Federation Conference and AGM, but Covid restrictions have forced cancellation. At a recent Board Meeting, we have now agreed to go ahead with this event on May 25 - 28, 2023. We will need a few helpers to manage some of the small jobs involved so please note the dates and give some thought to helping us out next May. Again, watch for more details in the days to come.
On Behalf of the Board,
Tom Hedekar, President
