Rear Entry of 85 Bleecker (near back ramp)

Spring has sprung, folks! And with that, comes the time-honoured tradition of the spring clean! To help members with this, we have arranged for the fine folks of the Canadian Diabetes Foundation to swing by and collect any unwanted clothing, furniture or housewares that you wish to purge.

Bleecker Cafe

Wednesday May 24, 1pm – 3pm
All members are welcome to attend and enjoy a delicious lunch with friends and neighbours. We will keep an eye on the weather, and, if it’s nice enough, we will dine in the courtyard. Following lunch, we will head over to the Ryerson Image Centre to check out the exhibits currently on display.

Members planning to attend are kindly asked to RSVP by May 22nd.
