Events Miscellany

Tue May 20, 2008 Miss Vicky 

Lots going on this week... and probably lots I am missing as well. But a few events of note:

Tonight (Tuesday) there's a workshop on organic gardening at the Hintonburg Community Centre . It runs from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. You can call Fauza at 613-238-8210 x2322 to reserve your spot. (Additional note: Fauza works for Somerset West Community Health Centre and has been working hard on trying to get a community garden for Hintonburg. She may have news to share about a potential location at Laroche Park).

Also at the HCC tonight is a Town Hall hosted by our Councillor, MP, and MPP on the issue of Transit, Greenspace and Infrastructure. It takes place from 7 to 9pm.

Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 21), Miss Vicky's friends at Straight Goods are holding a reception down at Darcy McGee's on Sparks and Elgin.

Says the invite:

This will be a chance for Ottawa-area readers to meet at least two of our illustrious Board members - Heather-jane Robertson and Mel Watkins - and four StraightGoods.ca production staff including award-winning editor Penney Kome, who will be in the nation's capital that day, on a visit from Calgary. It's part of our Spring Drive and also a way meet friends, colleagues, and readers.

The bash takes place from 4 to 7pm. Miss Vicky is always happy to hang out with her favourite economist, Mel Watkins, and other straightgoods pals, so will likely pop by for a pint (sadly, they don't serve Beau's there... straightgoods should really consider this the next time they select an Ottawa watering hole for an event).

Ratz! The one day I go to bed early and forget to do my rounds. I missed these events!
