Dear Compassionate Friend:

With thanks to those who have replied already, this is a gentle reminder that Eileen and I will be hosting our annual pot-luck Summer Social this Saturday, July 16th from 4:30 pm.

Everyone is welcome whether you have attended meetings or not. This social activity is a way to keep in touch with people you may have met through TCF or to introduce you to new friends. It is a true potluck, so please bring whatever you fancy, homemade or purchased – this is a no-stress event. Cutlery, plates, napkins, tea and coffee will be provided; drinks would be appreciated.

To help with planning, please RSVP to this e-mail, but you will also be welcome if you decide to come at the last minute. We are located off Prince of Wales Drive just south of Barrhaven. For detailed directions, please reply to this e-mail or call 613-692-4521.

Hope to see you here!

Best wishes,

Andy Bond
