We take our work at Cowichan Green Community pretty seriously sometimes! If you've ever stopped by our office on a Monday afternoon, you'll typically find our staff and volunteers preparing for a busy week ahead. Thankfully we all have a good sense of humour and can take a moment to laugh at ourselves and enjoy the lighter moments.
During this merry season, the staff of CGC are wrapping up odds and ends and preparing ourselves for the year ahead. Soon we will meet to dream-up our 2015 calendar of events, workshops, and projects. An exciting opportunity for our team to break-out the flip charts and sticky notes (yes, we are big on sticky notes), we look forward to debriefing the successes and challenges of 2014 so that we can make our ongoing programs even more robust and perhaps developing a few new ones! These details will be shared in our January e-newsletter. For now you can rest assured that 2015 is going to be filled with many reasons for our staff and community to laugh and learn together.
In the mean time, we want to thank everyone who supported the work of CGC this past year. It was truly a year of great change, particularly as we wrapped up The Station's major renovations and celebrated our one year anniversary as owners of this building. Accordingly, whether you're reading this e-newsletter as a volunteer, member, donor, contractor, or as an interested community member, we want to express our deepest sense of gratitude for your support and encouragement.
Lastly, just as many of our projects and events will take a rest over the holiday season, so too will our staff and volunteers. Please note that our office and thrift store will be closed on the following dates:
- December 15, 2014 - Closed for Staff Strategic Planning Meeting
- December 24, 2014 - Open - 10am-2pm
- December 25, 2014 - January 4, 2015 - Closed
We look forward to re-opening our doors on January 5, 2015 at 10am.
For now, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
