AWOL Monthly Events
Contact Kathleen Holland @ 519-471-2177 Sept./Oct. 2018
AWOL events are women-only events.
Saturday September 8th @ 6 PM – AWOL Bonfire – Come one, come all. We’re so looking forward to hosting our first AWOL bonfire of 2018. We had a new deck built earlier in the summer and a privacy fence that was just completed in time for this event…and wanted all projects to be completed to welcome you back to our yard. We hope you can make it another outstanding gathering around the fire. Please bring your favourite bonfire treats to toast – we’ll provide marshmallows and (meat) wieners. But, by all means, bring
whatever food you would love to cook over an open flame on a skewer! BYOB and lawn chair. And as a backup plan if it rains, we’ll just host the party indoors, minus the flames…so we’d just ask you to bring munchies to share. Please RSVP to Kathleen @ email@example.com by Thursday the 6th.
Sunday October 14th @ 2 PM – AWOL Hike – View the autumn rich colours along the beautiful trails of the Sifton Bog on Oxford Street West (south side, west of Hyde Park Road). The terrain is uneven so please come prepared to walk the trails with running shoes/hiking boots and perhaps walking poles or a walking stick. Binoculars and a camera will definitely be assets. Our leisurely nature hike will take 90 – 120 minutes as we search out the woodlot trails for interesting inhabitants that live there. An early dinner will be planned at the nearby McGinnis Landing Restaurant (666 Wonderland Rd. N @ Oxford). To join us, please RSVP to Kathleen @ firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday October 11th.
Tuesday October 23rd @ 7 PM – 10 PM – AWOL Inspirational Discussion Group – With the cooler months now upon us, we will again host some of our popular indoor events starting off with this one. The format is that we view a movie/video together as a group then discuss its impact afterwards by taking turns to share with the group. That evening we will view content found on Ted Talks that pertain to personal growth, how to reduce/handle stress, etc. The forum will be an open one as we seek member input in advance, for the general topics you would like to learn about that night. To join this group, please send Kathleen your RSVP to email@example.com by Sunday October 21st. Please bring munchies to share and your own beverage. Tea/coffee will be provided.
Saturday November 10th @ 6:30 (arrival) – 10:30 PM – AWOL Euchre Night – Back by popular demand, let’s get our game faces on and play some cards!! Last time we played, we had 4 tables of players ready to go, with a possible 5th table at the ready if required. We welcome you back into the fold to try your “hand” at this again. We will limit participants to a total of 20 though, because we won’t have much room for floaters…haha. We will provide a quick review of the game rules so expertise is not required but definitely is an asset! The games will begin at 7 PM and wrap up whenever you wish or by our
bedtime (10:30 PM), whichever comes firstJ After each game, winning pairs will play other winners, and those who would have enjoyed winning get to try their luck by playing their peers from another table. So that way, we all get to mix and mingle. BYOB and munchies to share please. RSVP to Kathleen by Thursday Nov. 8th.
