CANCELLED: Post-Holiday Event with @WR_Greens

CANCELLED: Tonight’s Post-Holiday Event

Bad news, our Post-Holiday Event for tonight needs to be cancelled.

An unfortunate combination of last-minute cancellations, car troubles, and unavailability means that expected attendance is down to a handful of people. Rather than having a few people bring potato salad for dozens and having it go to waste, it’s better to cancel now, and have another event later in the spring when more of us can meet each other.

My apologies for the late notice; these things sneak up on you and then explode.

Christmas decorations, ornaments, and cookies Hello Waterloo Region Greens! Merry Belated Christmas and Happy Upcoming New Year!

The holidays are half over, and in the usual Christmas madness we’ve only now been able to get ourselves coordinated for our Holiday Event. Bryan Izzard has offered to host at his farmhouse in Baden on Saturday, 5 January 2019, starting at 6:00pm. I guess that makes it a Post-Holiday Event!

Join all your friends of the Waterloo Region Greens for a final celebration of the holidays and 2018’s accomplishments — and since it was an election year, there were many accomplishments!

It’s a potluck event, so bring an appetizer, sweet or savoury snacks, salad, fancy beverages, dinner entree, or dessert. And when you come, please label your dish if it contains wheat, nuts, eggs, dairy, meat, &c.

What: WR Greens Post-Holiday Event
When: Saturday, 5 January 2019 at 6:00pm
Where: Bryan Izzard’s house
Location: 3876 Sandhills Road, Baden, Ontario
Map: https://osm.org/go/ZXnSv4rx-?m=

If anyone needs a ride you can ask your fellow WR Greens on this Discussion List, or send me an e-mail to say whether you need a ride or can offer one, and I’ll sort ride-givers and ride-takers, make a list (and check it twice). Don’t forget to include your address!

And shortly after our Post-Holiday Event we’ll have another regular WR Greens meeting on Wednesday, 9 January 2019. We need to set up candidate nomination dates for the EDAs (there’s a federal election in 2019!), and start planning for the summer’s festival events and other political happenings.

What: WR Greens Regular Meeting
When: Wednesday, 9 January 2018 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, followed by Social Night
Where: Innovation42 Co-Working Space (tentative)
Location: 2nd Floor, 283 Duke Street West, Kitchener, Ontario
Map: https://osm.org/go/ZXnwU_oa?m=

I’ll send out a reminder early that week with confirmation of the meeting location.

See you all at Bryan’s house on Saturday, 5 January!

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.
