Thank you for your support during Covid19!
I want to thank everyone who was flexible and understanding during the last 2 years of Covid19. As of September 2022 we will be back to meeting every month at the Scandinavian Centre.
Doors open at 6pm and we will start the meeting part of the evening at around 7pm. We will continue to broadcast on zoom for those of our members who are unable to attend due to distance, weather or personal choice.
As Calgary has lifted all indoor restrictions we no longer need to record member's phone numbers for contact tracing and will go back to our regular sign in process.
We are also able to serve food and you are welcome to bring items to share if you would like. We will also have coffee and tea during the evening.
