Drinks After Work (but Saturday this time)

The “Drinks After Work” gals are getting together again (but not after work!)

Saturday, November 22


Norwood Hotel

112 Marion St

In the pub there is an alcove where they have placed some new tables/chairs….a great space for talking, drinking, and eating.  Very comfortable and cozy.

So come on down. Bring friends, family – the more the merrier.

MAWA Fundraiser

It’s back … the costumed and culinary event of the year! Get your space suit on and be transported into the future. Star Wars? Barbarella? Planet of the Apes? Pick your reference! Dress up, and share in fabulous conversation and a delicious Indian buffet. Enjoy all you can eat, including starters, mains, veggie options and desserts.

Or come a little later for a futuristic dance party and skills auction. Bid on things you didn’t even know you needed! Headstone engraving by Dana Kletke? That’s just one of the amazing services on offer! You’ll be amazed by the skills of MAWA supporters that you can purchase. Beam yourself up to MAWA to buy tickets or purchase them from any board member. Act fast! Bring your friends! It all supports MAWA … into the future (cue spacey music!)

Caption: Space aliens or contemporary artists? Where else but at a MAWA dinner can you look so fabulous?

ReelPride for Friday

If you’re on the Doodle list for tomorrow (Friday), please email praxis2121@gmail.com so we can arrange the details for meeting up. I can’t tell from the name on the Doodle what the corresponding email address is!

SOSA Art Exhibit October 25


ReelPride Movies

ReelPride runs this whole week, and there are so many great movies to see! Instead of planning individual LACE events, let’s try a Doodle as a way of figuring out who might like to go to what. Someone will however need to volunteer to be the “hostess with the mostest” for the others that have said they’re interested. This would just mean keeping an eye on the number of people on the list and waiting till everyone has arrived. Easy!

Here’s the link:


The descriptions for the films can be found here: http://reelpride.org

Dali Exhibit: October 18

To those who were asking about going to see Dali, one of the LACErs has suggested Saturday, October 18, at 11 a.m.

Here’s the link for the show: http://wag.ca/art/exhibitions/upcoming-exhibitions/display,exhibition/153/dal-iacute-up-close

Adult tickets are $18 (members $4)

Please email praxis2121@gmail.com if you’re interested!
