Dear BWC,

Here is a schedule of our planned meetings at Grace United Church on Monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.

We meet every Monday except for Holidays. This year we plan a Christmas party for Monday, December 17, (probably at my house).

This coming year we plan to meet during March break but not Easter Monday, April 22.

Please keep in mind that if the weather conditions are difficult for driving we will cancel. We generally make a decision as late as 4:00 or 5:00 pm of that day, often following the lead of Georgian College. Please check your email or social media for updates on cancellations for a given day.
