Chamber of Commoners Redux

By David Parkinson

I’m away in Vancouver this week for a Community Developers’ Conference sponsored by the Social Planning and Research Council of BC, so in lieu of a post I will pass along this important announcement from the organizing team of the Chamber of Commoners, who are putting on another event. I am really looking forward this follow-up evening, since it will be a great opportunity to catch up with all of the amazing and progressive action going on in the region.

Here is the announcement:

Greetings Commoners,

After a long grey winter, it’s time for all of us in non-profit, community, and people-based activities to refuel by coming together at the upcoming ‘Chamber of Commoners’. It’s going to take place on June 9, so save the date. Once again, the evening will be filled with snacks and drinks, information tables, ‘organizational’ speed-dating, door prizes, and even more open time to mingle with new and old friends. In addition, we’ll have a bit of fun trying our hands at some collective song writing. That’s right! We’re going to work together to add a few verses to John Prine’s ‘In a Town This Size’ and give it some local Powell River flavour. Some of Powell River’s very own music talent will be on hand to help perform the final product.

Mark your calendars, and spread the word! Here are all the details you’ll need:

Chamber of Commoners
Club Bon Accueil (French Club)
5110 Manson Avenue
7-9 pm, Wednesday, June 9, 2010

This is a ‘by donation’ event (suggested donation: $5.00). No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

RSVP to to confirm your attendance.

Please let us know ASAP if you’d like to reserve space for an information table (space is limited).

We are looking for donations of door prizes. Contact us if you have something to offer.

See you there!
