The event will begin with an opportunity to help paint some of the clay pieces made by various Blind Beginnings members for our 10th Anniversary Community Art Project. Regardless of whether you made one of the clay creations, you are invited to help add some colour to the pieces. Then, we will eat lunch while we wait for the paint to dry. Lunch will be a family BBQ/pot luck. Blind Beginnings will provide hamburgers and hot dogs but we ask all families to please bring a dish to share. For example; a salad, side dish, dessert, etc.

The formal meeting will begin at 1:30 pm and volunteers will be present to assist with child-care during the meeting. After the meeting, we will be assembling all the clay pieces into the final masterpiece that is commemorating 10 fabulous years of Blind Beginnings! This should wrap up by 3:30pm.
If you plan to attend please RSVP to lisa@blindbeginnings.ca no later than September 24 with the number of people in your family who will be attending, whether you are coming for the lunch, the meeting, or both, and what you will be bringing for the potluck.
