Pebble in the Pond has two great events coming up next week and we’d be very pleased to see you at either or both of them.
The first is the meeting of the Chamber of Commoners on Wednesday, June 9 at 7:00pm at Club Bon Accueil:
And the following evening it is our
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
THURSDAY, JUNE 10, 2010 at 6:00pm at BREAKWATER BOOKS, 6812A Alberni Stret
Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in the meeting. We welcome your ideas on how to reduce plastic garbage in our community!
Pebble in the Pond will report out on the many successful activities undertaken in the past year, and the amazing progress Powell River has made as a community. We will also provide a preview of projects slated to occur in the next twelve months. Membership fees have played a key role in helping Pebble in the Pond make a big splash that is making good waves in our community. If you’re not a member already or haven’t renewed yet, we welcome you to join us either before or at the meeting. We are also very pleased to present the following special event after the AGM: Sweetness from Ashes book reading and African fundraiser with Marlyn Horsdal at 7 pm
“Sweetness from Ashes is a confident and accomplished debut. An exploration of family feuds and secrets, Horsdal leads her readers across Canada and to parts of Africa on a journey of familial discovery. As those of us who read a great deal of CanLit know, such journeys often end in shame and heartbreak. Refreshingly, though, Horsdal’s vision is a more mature one. She leads us across her vistas with a sort of vibrant abandon. I loved Sweetness from Ashes. It’s a book for which I feel I’ve waited a long time.” Review by January Magazine. Author Marlyn Horsdal started a non-profit organization called Educating Girls in Africa, a scholarship program for girls at St. Louis Secondary School in Kumasi, Ghana. All royalties from the sale of this novel will be donated to this cause. Marlyn Horsdal lives on Salt Spring Island.
