Happy World Thinking Day!
On February 26 and March 4, we are going on two fun outings!
On February 26, we are volunteering at the new location of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. The Food Bank has moved to Burnaby (8345 Winston St), so please make sure you come to the right place! Also, our volunteer shift is earlier than our regular meeting time. Please arrive at the Food Bank by 5:50 pm, as we start at 6:00 pm sharp. We will end by 8:00 pm.
Uniforms and close toed shoes are mandatory for this service event. Please also bring some non-perishable food items to donate to the food bank. Some of their most needed items are canned beans, dry pasta, pasta sauces, canned fish, and canned full meals (such as soup or chilli).
Please also bring the Food Bank Volunteering Form (below) with you on Wednesday.
Also, as a reminder, on March 4, we’re heading out on another exciting outing to the West Coast Area Travel Talks event. We’ll post more information about that fun event in advance of March 4.
Lastly – and very importantly – effective March 11, we will be switching meeting locations to St Thomas Anglican Church as First Lutheran Church is no longer available on Wednesday nights starting in March! St Thomas is just a few blocks away from First Lutheran at 2444 E 41st Ave, at St Margarets Street – enter from the back basement door off of St Margarets Street. Some of you will remember St Thomas, as we used to meet there. Their renovations are complete, and the new meeting space is wonderful, so we’re very excited to be returning! We’ll send out more information about the move via email.
