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.

This tremendously popular annual street festival celebrates all things apple. Four city blocks become a showcase for our many local apple growers who proudly offer up a wide variety of fresh picked apples and other goodies. You’ll also find fresh-pressed apple cider, homemade apple pies and crisps, candy and carmel apples, cider donuts, and so much more.
Unique handmade, high quality crafts and food products can be found in several large marquee tents and booths lining the street. There are plenty of things for the children to see and do too, including carnival rides, jumping castles, pony rides, and more. If you plan on attending, please RSVP by 6pm Monday, October 9th to Sonya (firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-440-5227) to let her know.
