Newsletter – June 2024


You’re Invited!!

Where: Alternatives Community Program Services, 270 Braidwood Ave,
When: Monday June 17, 2024. 5:30 – 8 p.m.
Bring: plate, cutlery and mug or cup. A potluck dish that would serve
several people.
Agenda: Eat!! Socialize!! Annual General meeting reports will be given by
Board members. Nominations and elections or appointments for the next
term’s Board will take place.
The Guild Board will have some positions available for the next 2-year
term: President, Vice President, Secretary, Program and Membership are
available. There may be more too, as we get closer to that time. Please
think about whether you would like to serve on the Guild Board. The work is
not onerous. It involves one 40-minute (usually shorter!) Zoom meeting per
month, aside from the all-member Guild meeting which many of you attend
regularly anyway. It’s fun to be involved with a great group of fibre people! I
hope you’ll give it some serious consideration. Watch for an email from
Darlene with more information.

Call for Instructors and Class Ideas: We continue to look for ways to increase our class offerings. If any of you are ‘wanna-be’ teachers, please let Darlene know! Classes are the lifeblood of the ACP. Summertime classes typically have fewer participants, so they’re a great way to cut your teeth as an instructor.

Regena Lerke Scholarship: Congratulations to Anda for her successful application for this scholarship. She will be studying her Weaving Part 2 course. Look for a program offering next year based on Anda’s learnings.

Community Wide Art Contest: Come and see the entries for the  ‘Our Fragile Forests’ contest on Friday, June 7. This is based on a community wide call for submissions and prizes will be awarded, including a “People’s Choice” award. Your votes are needed! 3-9 p.m. at the Artisans’ Centre. Coinciding with June’s downtown First Friday Art Crawl.
