Classes are scheduled to begin on March 2nd. It may be a smaller group than I would prefer, but interest is growing as I meet more seniors, and slowly but surely spread the word. I have been offered FREE space at a seniors residence (Chartwell’s Cedarbrooke in Mission) which means I am able to lower the price for the series to the benefit of all!
The space is a choice between two depending on the size of the group. The private dining room is marvellous for a small group and will accomodate tea/coffee and cookies along with the necessary charts etc. The second space is the Theatre which is a very good size for larger groups and has PowerPoint capability along with space for tea/coffee and charts etc. The chairs in the Theatre are a tad too comfortable perhaps, but no-one would complain about that.
At this point I need to settle the approximate count according to active registrations and determine where we will begin – dining room or Theatre. We can take last minute registration but this delays the start of the first session so I prefer pre-registration when possible.
Advertising in a local magazine designed as an information guide is attractive and effective! Writing 200-300 words every other month is not difficult and I can gradually educate the readers as to what we are doing. The magazine is glossy, colouful and each ad can be personalized – all great! My thanks go to Cory Cassel and “WhatsOn” for assistance.
