Leo from the Social Committee tells us:
Friday May 31, 2019 a group of co-op members met for an evening of brewery touring and socializing organized by the Social Committee. The group toured two local east Vancouver breweries; it was a great opportunity to meet each other and learn a bit more about our neighbours. Lots of lively chatter and laughs were shared by all. Another event will be planned soon.
You’re invited to the April meeting of the membership committee, which will be a portable workshop from CHF BC on interviewing and member selection.
Food will be provided by the social committee.
Please RSVP to Jacqui at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
Once again, Pender-Ferndale had the strongest showing at a Co-op event, with Al, Esme, Nola, Mary W. and Nina representing their site. Jen from Vic-Nape, Mary S. from Salsbury and Teresa from Venables rounded out the game-players for the day. Jen and Al laid out a terrific spread of snacks, which helped everyone keep going between rounds. The group warmed up with a round of Crazy 8s and then the main event began. Mary W. and Nina had brought one of their new favourite games, Telestrations, and the rest of the afternoon was spent drawing and guessing and drawing again.
There’s sure to be another games day, so be prepared for games of all kinds – co-operative, competitive, performative, and creative!
Thanks to Al and Jen for organizing this fun Sunday afternoon event and thanks to everyone who joined in or stopped by to say hello.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s cookie swap! Pender-Ferndale had the strongest showing, with Tara, Esme, Nola, Michel and Jacqui in attendance, while Mary and Nina sent packages of cookies along for the swap. Teresa from Venables and Anna K. of Grant Street attended, too. We had a cozy afternoon, drinking tea, eating samples, and sharing stories. We also celebrated Jacqui’s birthday with a little Earnest ice cream. Then, we sent the extra cookies upstairs to Ruth, Salsbury’s resident cookie-lover.
Now you know which units to drop by for a little holiday cookie cheer!
