Book Early for Globe Luncheons!

Where did the summer go? Time to meet again, eat a nice lunch, and pick up a few gems of wisdom from our friends and neighbours. It’s less than a month until our first lunch, this time tied into the AGM of DAC.

September 12
Jackie Durnform & Sandra Lackie, Creemore Hundred Mile Store

Last spring I picked up a package of “snap peas” carefully wrapped in cellophane. I salivated for a nice pea dinner until I read “Packaged in China”! Yuck! All this by way of introducing out first speakers, from the Creemore Hundred Mile Store, Jackie Durnform and Sandra Lackie. These dynamos will explain the wisdom, beauty, and creativity in raising and eating local meat, vegetables, fruits, and grains. No need to ship these foods by air freight!

December 5
Beckie Morris, Theatre Orangeville

Theatre Orangeville’s December play is A Christmas Carol. Probably more important than the actors and director are the “wizards” who make it happen. Lead wizard Beckie Morris will talk about the amazing amount of complex work required to stage a play and the challenges she encounters before, during, and after any performance.

A gentle reminder that we have reluctantly raised our price for the luncheons and speakers to $20.00.


We continue with Judy and Paul Lansing as our “ticketmaster” outlet. Please phone them to reserve at 519-9424049.  Also phone if you need to cancel! Phone by the Friday before the luncheon. We give Beth and David our numbers on Saturday morning so that they can order sufficient food and we are billed according to that number. As Beth and David always have a little extra, we can add a few last minute members up to Sunday night, but we are billed for the number we quote on Saturday morning. If you find you can attend but have no reservation, call Judy up to Sunday night to see if there is space.

If you reserve and do not cancel, we will have to send you a bill! We would rather have you there! Book as early as  possible, preferably right after the previous month’s event.
