Dear Green Party Members and Supporters,

We made history! But it doesn’t stop here!

If you’re like me you’re still on a roll after the the election of Mike Schreiner in Guelph only one month ago. In order to keep the momentum going I would like to invite you to an important meeting take place in your local Kitchener Centre riding. At this meeting we will elect your executive representatives for 2018, share food and social time together, and make our plans for 2019 and beyond.

The evening will consist of:

  1. Annual Report from the CEO and Financial Agent
  2. Elections of the 2018 executive committee
  3. Open time for discussion and sharing
  4. Casual gathering with light refreshments
  5. Waterloo Region Greens, what it is, and how it connects to Kitchener Centre

This event will be held on Tuesday August 7th at 6:00 pm in Victoria Park (in the covered picnic area behind the new play structure). Parking is available by accessing the park off of Dill St. or Schneider Ave. The area is wheel chair accessible, and is convenient to access by major GRT routes at Charles St. Terminal. Come enjoy some refreshments in the company of the friendly, hardworking folks that keep the heartbeat of Kitchener-Centre Greens healthy and strong.

Please RSVP to Matthew Piggott, at kitchener_centre@greenparty.ca so that we can be sure to have enough refreshments! If there is a food item you can bring, please include that information as well.
