Two New QMUNITY Generations' Drop In Programs

Thanks to all of you who gave us feedback on our Generations drop-in programs; you spoke and we listened! We are spicing up and redesigning our Fruity Flicks and Documentary & Discussion programs to better meet your needs! In the next couple of months we will be replacing our movie programs with two varied, dynamic, and participant driven drop-in programs. Some suggestions for the kinds of activities we are considering are: flirting workshops, potluck socials, board game afternoons, reflection and writing circles (poetry slams), and TED talks followed by group discussions. This month we will be holding two brand new drop-in programs. We can't wait to see you there!

April's Drop-In Program:

Coffee & Chat
When: April 17th: 1:30-3:30pm
Where: 610 - 1033 Davie Street

Join us for a social afternoon of coffee and cookies as we brainstorm about: activities for upcoming drop-ins, the best times to schedule drop-in programs and how to get the word out.

April's Second Drop-In Program:

Board Games
When: April 22nd: 11am-2pm
Where: 610 - 1033 Davie Street

Join us for a fun and social afternoon of board games (choices: Scattegories, Cribbage, Taboo, Scrabble). Coffee and tea provided.
