After a year of meeting at the ARCH (1429 Main St. E.) we’ve switched to a spot on Ottawa Street. L.G. Wallace Funeral Home at 151 Ottawa Street (just south of Cannon) has a comfortable lounge/meeting room that holds 35 and is free of charge. There is ample parking available. L.G. Wallace had advertised in The Point as having meeting rooms available, so I phoned and received a warm response. Staff person Jessica will also be attending our meetings, so double bonus!
Funeral homes are becoming more than the traditional end-of-life “sad” places. They are starting to reach out to the community, offering their spaces for service and connection to their neighbourhoods. We are glad L.G. Wallace is there for us every month on the fourth Wednesday, at 7:30 pm.
The next meeting is on Wednesday October 26. See you at 151 Ottawa Street, at 7:30 pm.
