ACT Annual General Meeting
The time is once more upon us to gather, to review a year’s business and reaquaint with all our friends. This year on August 1, the ACT AGM will be hosted (most generously) by Terry and Jennifer.
The AGM is open to all of it’s members past and present, so don’t be shy to come out and join us. We will be meeting at 5 pm, and beginning the formal meeting itself by 6 pm. Following the meeting we’ll enjoy a potluck dinner. People should also bring a lawnchair or two if they have them for outdoor meeting and dining. (BYOB too!)
Terry and Jennifer’s home is at 932 Peters Road, route 244 in Elmwood. Take TransCanada to New Haven; turn north on hwy 9, the Colville Road; take (after about two kilometres) the first left, the Wynne Road; take it to the end, which is the Peters Road; turn right and proceed about a kilometre. Our house is on the right, set back behind a lot of trees. If you come to a potato warehouse on the right, or a crossroad, you have come too far.
I hope to see you all there! Take care, Richard.
