Our last meeting date at the Goodberry – 55 Baldwin St. Brooklin has been rescheduled as June 17 is Father’s Day. Instead, we plan to hold our annual general meeting on Sunday, June 10th at 1pm at the Brooklin Pub – 15 Baldwin St. Brooklin. After that, we will be taking a summer hiatus and starting up again in the fall with our regular monthly meetings at the Goodberry from September 2018 on the 3rd Sunday (11am-2pm) of every month.
We have also been invited to read at the Stellar Lit Festival on June 10th. The event takes place at the Parkwood Estate in Oshawa, 270 Simcoe St N, Phone:(905) 433-4311, https://www.parkwoodestate.com/. Our reading will start at 11:30 am.
From time to time we like to give shout outs to significant poetry events that are not necessarily connected with BPS.
