REMINDER/ suggested alternative plans for SAQA Central Canada - Ottawa area Regional Meeting....

Greetings all Ottawa and Area Members...

We have graciously been offered a beautiful Meeting Room at ARTS COUNCIL of Ottawa in their Micaela Fitch Board Room at 2 Daly Street, Ottawa on the 21st of October from 10 am to 2 pm. Thanks to Mary Pal for making the meeting room appointment for us.

More than a few members have reported a conflict for the Oct. 21st date, and it is important for us to be able to get together with as many other Regional members in and near our Ottawa area as possible.
If the Tuesday October 21st will not work for you this time, would a Saturday work better for you?

We are certainly open to suggestions for preferred activities - a lunch meeting, a playdate that could be an all day gathering with quick SAQA updates, an exchange of some preferred activities for meetings and perhaps some time to work on a new technique or get into a small project.
These options would require a bit of planning and a good space. Please share your ideas! If you have a suggestion for a meeting place or can volunteer to host a meeting, do let us know.

Let me suggest three alternative dates in November that might be possibilities:
(please RSVP your availability for one or more):

Saturday November 15th in or near Ottawa (with a volunteer host)

Thursday, November 20th in Ottawa, downtown

Saturday, November 22nd, TBA with a volunteer host
(SYNTHESIS II traveling pieces will be available for pick up at this meeting per Pat Caffery, Curator for Synthesis II, for those who are in the Ottawa area.)

Hoping you will get back to me and that we can arrange time this fall before the Holidays creep up on us for a Regional Parlour Meeting, to meet new members and renew friendships/exchange ideas with those you know well and love to see.

RSVP to Bethany Garner, SAQA Co- Rep., garner@kingston.net

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
