Education Committee chairperson Shirley Higgins is concerned that two upcoming workshops in our Education Series are at risk of being cancelled.
Workshops endangered by poor registration
"We need a minimum of 12 participants and so far we are at eight for each," says Shirley.
The deadline to register for both workshops Wednesday, March 7, at one o'clock. A decision will be made following tomorrow's luncheon meeting.
Both workshops are scheduled for Friday afternoons between 1 and 4 at Schubert Centre. The fee is $40 for non-members. Members received a discounted fee of $20.
Register on-line or contact Shirley at email@example.com or phone (250) 558-9807.
