This month, we were forced to stray from our “second Thursday of every month” routine, since next Thursday falls on Valentine’s Day and we figured our members would rather cuddle up with those they love rather than spend the night with us! Despite the schedule change, we were lucky to have another great turnout of members, students, potential members and even members from other writing organizations. In attendance, we had Mel, Dennis, Connie and Annie from the Print Futures Program at Douglas College, Past President Michelle Clough, Regional Direction Heidi Turner, Autumn from the Society for Technical Communication, Mirey who is looking to join PWAC, and myself.
We spent the night at Steamworks Pub, enjoying each others’ company and talking all things writing. Before we knew it, two hours had passed! We came, we ate and we laughed. It was a great night of networking and friend-making.
Until next time, I look forward to seeing more and more people turn out for our monthly socials.
