As you may have heard, our fall retreat is taking place this Friday (Nov 18) and Saturday (Nov 19)! OIH members are encouraged to attend.  Here are all the details you need.

Times: Friday evening, 8-9:45pm; Saturday 9:30am-3:30pm.

Place: Room 103, 2780 E Broadway (see Google map here: . Enter the main door under the street number. There’s no public parking in the lot; please park on the street.  Bus 9 on Broadway is the best transit option, although the Renfrew Skytrain is only a couple blocks away (it’s uphill to our venue, though). For cyclists, the Central Valley Greenway passes very close (turn north at Kaslo).  The venue is accessible.  We can leave things overnight, but the kitchen will not be available.

What we’ll do: sing, hug, talk, eat, play games, bond, have fun!

What to bring: smiles, your music, coffee mug, a food dish to share for Saturday lunch (please list the ingredients, and don’t forget a utensil to serve it with!) .  The Social Butterfly team invites everyone to wear their pyjamas and slippers Saturday (and bring your favorite stuffed toy!).

The retreat is always a highlight of each season; hope you can make it!  If you have any questions, please email Geoff at
