ON THE HORIZON
Book Club – don’t miss the first Book group meeting of the year on Thursday!
We are excited to announce a new group for those chill-out lovers looking for a company on Friday night – the new group It’s Friday hosted by a friendly British couple will await you at Shakesbeer pub to kick off the weekend!
Café Français – the location is changing! This group has gotten so big and popular that we needed more space and thus have moved to La Brasserie Natation, 32 Blvd. Gambetta
Please check our Event Calendar for more details about our weekly groups, cultural outings and events.
ACT OF KINDNESS: WOOL BLANKETS FOR THE PEOPLE IN NEED
In November 2017, the members of Open House Craft group posing with the wool blanket they made for charity. This large blanket was a group effort: different squares made by different people from left over wool. The charity organization Resto du Coeur appreciated this international effort with people from nationalities from all over the world contributing to it. They loved the colors and said the blanket would go very quickly to someone who really needed it.
This is not the first our attempt to help homeless people – OH Craft group also made 2 warm baby blankets earlier this year and donated to the families in need through the charity organizations.
