Regular WRGreens meeting — Wed 7 Nov 2018

Update: Venue is Abe Erb at the Tannery, 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener, Ontario Map

Green cartoon silhouettesHi everyone! First, thanx to everyone who completed the poll to determine when we should hold our regular meetings and social nights. The most popular day-of-week choice was Wednesday, and the most popular week-of-month choice was the first week of the month.

So, the first Wednesday of the month, every other month it is! The regular meeting is from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, and is followed by socializing from 7:00pm onwards — it’s two separate events, so no-one is obligated to come to a boring business meeting just to be social.

Committee meetings can be held in the alternate months when there’s no regular WRGreens meeting. See https://wrgreens.ca/committees/ for a list of committees and the committee chairs.

So, the first Wednesday of November is next week, 7 November 2018!

What: WR Greens Meeting and Social Night
When: Wednesday 7 November 2018
Time: 6:00pm – 7:00pm (Regular Meeting)
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm (Social Meeting)
Where: Abe Erb at the Tannery
Location: 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener, Ontario Map

We need a venue for our meeting and social night — I’m open to ideas! It should be somewhere quiet enough to hold the regular meeting, big enough for 10-15 people (or more!), and financially considerate for WRGreens of all income levels. Let me know, and I’ll send out a reminder with the location on Tuesday night.

See you on Wednesday!

–Bob.

Note: WRGreens Poll Meeting Format — Yes, I’m a voting systems weenie, and I fully recognize the huge flaws in choosing two different things from one plurality-based poll.
