April 21st Meeting Reminder – new venue!

Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, April 21st

Our April meeting is coming up on Monday and we’ll be meeting at our new venue, the Unitarian Church of Vancouver at 949 W 49th Avenue. Due to the difficulties we experienced with access to our previous venue at our March meeting, we have decided to switch venues earlier than planned. We’re looking forward to many successful meetings at our new space!
