WELCOME TO THE AJAX/ PICKERING CHAPTER
We have a great chapter with lots of activities for everyone!
Meetings are held Wednesdays at the Ajax Cricket Club, 615 Monarch Ave., Ajax, ON
Meetings are open to all members and guests (children are welcome). It’s a great opportunity to hear about and sign up for events, meet new people, and contribute any ideas you might have.
Many of our members meet at Tim Horton’s on Harwood South after the meeting for some refreshments and conversation.
***Change to our weekly Wednesday meetings, and some explanation as to what to expect!***
It has been brought to my attention that people may not know exactly what is going on, or what to expect from a weekly Wednesday Meeting. Here is a look at what has been going on, and where we are looking to move to going forward, as well as a little information as to what to expect.
1st Wednesday of the month – Executive Meeting (7:00pm – 8:00pm)
At this time the directors are presenting their ideas to the other directors, to get feedback and set dates to ensure there is as little overlapping as possible. It is also at this time that motions are put forward for any subsidies for such events. The directors then vote to decide whether or not the subsidy will be provided. We also discuss things that are happening at other chapters, conventions that might be coming up, the financial reports are brought forward, as well as any other topics pertaining to OPFA.
3rd Wednesday’s of the month – FAMILY POTLUCK (6:30pm)
Going forward we will be having a themed potluck on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Ajax Cricket Club. Please be sure to check your communications/ newsletters/ facebook/ meetup/ calendars for theme of the month. You can sign up by contacting Tami Townsend by email email@example.com or text 647-292-1599.

Join us on Thursday, November 23rd for a Christmas bake-off/Cookie Exchange!
Location: Hops House Bar & Grill, 121 Green Street in Whitby.
Do you have a favourite baking recipe that you prepare every Christmas? What about a secret family recipe for home-baked cookies or squares? Let’s get together with our OPFA friends and swap goodies so our freezers are well-stocked for holiday entertaining. You will be asked to bake enough of your recipe to swap 1/2 dozen with every other person who attends, plus a few extras for sampling. The more people that come out, the more goodies you go home with!
We need at least 6 people committed to make this event a success, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 905-440-5117 to sign up by Friday, November 17th. Don’t forget to tell Sonya what you will be making. After the sign-up deadline, Sonya will email all attendees to let you know how many cookies, etc. you will need to prepare. These can be packaged simply by using Ziploc bags or done more fancy if you feel like channeling Martha Stewart for an evening. We will be meeting at the Hops House, so please feel free to order dinner or a drink while you are there.
December’s adult activity will be a movie night on Tuesday, December 19th at the Ajax Cineplex. Movie will be selected closer to the date, but we will be aiming for a festive Christmas movie if there is one playing.
