26 November 2017: Meeting of the Planning Committee

Members of the IBS: Attached is a Notice of a Meeting of the Planning Committee to be held at the Thorndale Public Library at 1.00 pm on Sunday, November 26th, 2017. This is addressed to all Members, as they are eligible to attend and fully participate in the Planning for the next March 17th Luncheon. It is absolutely urgent that we have as many Members attend as possible as there are a number of decisions that must be made immediately. Efforts to have a Meeting earlier in the Fall were unsuccessful so it is critical that you attend this important Meeting.

We were able to obtain the use of the Thorndale Library through the efforts of our President, Laura Garner, a Thorndale resident. It should also be noted that Thorndale was the home of our first President, Lt. Col. James Shanley so it is fitting that 140 years after our founding that we meet in Thorndale.

Thorndale is North-East of London (less than 20 km) and depending on where you live, one of the most direct routes is to turn East off of Richmond St North on Medway Road/County Rd 28 at Arva, this will lead you into Thorndale. If you live east of Richmond St, take Highbury Ave or Clarke Rd to Medway Rd/County Rd 28 and again go East until you reach Thorndale. The Library is in beautiful downtown Thorndale; turn right onto Fairview Rd.

Please let us know as soon as possible whether you can or cannot make this important meeting by emailing jamesthardy@sympatico.ca. Coffee/tea/water will be supplied, anything else that you want you will have to bring yourself.
