June 10th Meeting: Books & Berries

It’s time again for our Bookies and Berries event including the Annual Book Sale fundraiser and book reviews.

Take the opportunity to donate your surplus books and buy some new ones. All books are competitively priced at
$2.00 for Hard Covers and $1.00 for Paperbacks. Exact change is appreciated so bring lots of loonies and toonies!

The Book Sale will be followed by book reviews by our members. If you would like to share your views on a book you’ve read recently, please email the Regional Coordinator.

For our pot-luck lunch, please bring a finger-food contribution. Berry-themed items are encouraged.

Also, we’re looking for volunteers for the following:

  • One additional volunteer to help with running the book sale
  • Volunteers to help with setting up the room for the book sale/reviews and lunch. Please arrive 20 minutes early to assist
  • Finally, volunteers for the clean-up at the end of the meeting are always welcome

Please email the Regional Coordinator at the link above if you are able to help out.

Reminder: As this is the final meeting for the 2022/23 session, don’t forget to bring your reusable name tags so we can repurpose them for the next session.

About attending

Here is a highlight view of some of our safety recommendations for in-person meetings:

  • Those feeling ill or unwell should remain home.
  • Please stay at home if you have been sick and wait until you are asymptomatic for several days.
  • If returning from travel, please be circumspect of attending an in-person meeting within 14 days of returning.
  • It is optional to wear a face mask while indoors. Wearing masks in public indoor settings is not required.

Proceed to the registration table, and sign in with your name and preferred contact information: phone or email.

Meeting fee is $5, and exact change is appreciated as there is not enough float to make change.

If you have not collected it, you can find the table with your reusable name tag. Then take a seat at one of the tables.

If you need the accessible ramp entrance, please contact to confirm the directions.
