One Straw Spring Potluck
Friday May 2. 2014     Mission Point, Davis Bay    6pm - 8pm

In the last newsletter I wrote about transition and mentioned a new partnership between One Straw and Sunshine Coast in Transition.  This is just one of the new things happening with us!  There are many updates we have to share with our members and have decided to have a potluck for everyone to come together, share some food, catch up and learn about some of the new things with One Straw. You will get to learn more about our upcoming AGM too!

Also, I have had some chances to meet some of our awesome members at other events over the past few months, but there are many of you that i still have not met.  I look forward to using this as an opportunity to get to know each of you more.

Justin French from the Live and Learn program will be there to launch the mentorship drive and can answer any questions you might have about the program.
