Hi. Just a brief Britannia Neighbours report. We had a meeting on Thursday night.
We talked with Brenda Racanelli, the arts and culture programmer at Britannia, about the Artist in Residence program that Britannia will be participating in for 2007. If you are an artist or know of an artist who might wish to apply, call Brenda at 604-718-5825 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
The program is open to artists of all disciplines.
The Victoria Oginski panels have been installed in the windows of Sweet Cherubim. Go have a look at them; they're just lovely. Victoria is the artist who did the mural on the side of Drive Organics, so the style of the two "walls" of the Greenway is complementary.
10:30 a.m. Monday, October 9!
If you have an hour to spare on Thanksgiving morning, we're planting some bulbs and plants, starting at 10:30. If you bring your kids, Britannia Neighbours is paying a penny a piece for acorns gathered in the greenway between 10:30 and 11:30. Acorns quickly become little oaks and those little oaks are pesky hard-to-yank-out weeds. We have plenty of BIG oaks in the Greenway already.
7:15, Thursday, November 2!
The next regular Britannia Neighbours meeting is Thursday, November 2 at 7:15 in the Info Centre at Brit. The meetings are always fun, small, informal and short. Come if you can.
