Fellow Petrels: Get some Christmas shopping done at the next meeting!
Fran has a great selection of Sherlockian books and VHS movies to sell during intermission at the next Stormy Petrel meeting. (50 cents to $2) A bargain, every one!
We will also have our Canonical ornaments on display.
Please note that we are postponing movie night until the Spring. We will be discussing “The Retired Colourman” at the December meeting. Details will be posted shortly.
Note that the January Birthday Brunch will take place on Saturday, January 4th, 2020 at the White Spot on West Georgia Street (11:00 a.m.) in the usual “Fireplace Room”
Please RSVP to Fran as soon as you can so she can confirm numbers with the restaurant.
Also, membership fees will be due at that time. New treasurer, Andy, will be more than happy to collect your $$
Any question? Please feel free to contact Fran at: email@example.com
