Here’s a quick update for those of you who couldn’t make it to the meeting last week.
At the meeting, we decided that book club meetings would be held every three weeks. For now, the book club will be held on Saturdays in the EIFW chapel at one o’clock, and the group ranges from 9 – 13 people.
We decided at the meeting that Tara and Jocelyn would continue to reserve the book club kits from Strathcona Country Public Library, and that the book club meetings will be hosted
my more people from the committee. If you are interested in signing up (in pairs or on your own) to host one or more meetings, please see the following list.
Tara and Jocelyn still need to reserve the books, so the list may change. If you are interested in hosting any of these meetings, let me know. I’m out of this office this week so if you want to sign up, add a comment to this post.
(FYI – For the first initial meeting, Laura and I went together and for the second meeting, I went on my own. The women said that they didn’t have preference for having one or two people, so it’s really up to your own comfort level if you want to go as pairs or individually. Also, this Saturday Moyra and I are doing A Complicated Kindess. )
