Creative Neighbours Salon
What will 2017 bring?
Shall we continue? Who shall we invite? Can you help with planning or setup and cleanup?
It's the new year and as we've completed the requirements for our neighbourhood small grant, we'd like to meet with other "regulars" and see what we might cook up for the coming year. Come along if you'd like to be part of the discussion: no obligation. We'll get to know each other (better) and share what creative projects are on our horizon, and then move to a discussion about the Creative Neighbours Salons. Kira and Mary are enthusiastic to continue IF there are at least two others who will share the load of planning and set-up. Many hands make light work, so if there are more than four of us, the load is even lighter. There are many ways to help: whether in planning and approaching possible presenters down to doing a few dishes and furniture rearrangement at the end.
