SCONA NEWS JULY 2018

FYI: PLEASE DO NOT CALL RITCHIE HALL ABOUT ACTIVITIES ON OUR CALENDAR.

RITCHIE IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH SCONA….WE JUST USE THE SPACE LIKE ANYONE ELSE WHO IS RENTING THE HALL. THE STAFF AT RITCHIE CANNOT ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT SCONA. PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, CALL SCONA AT 780-433-5377. IF WE ARE OUT IN THE COMMUNITY, ON A FIELD-TRIP, OR AT THE HALL, JUST LEAVE A MESSAGE AND WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU ASAP. THANKS LOADS!

 

MANY THANKS TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN PHONING TO LET US KNOW YOU ARE ATTENDING AN ACTIVITY. YOUR CALL HELPS US TO CONTROL SPENDING ON THE FOOD WE PREPARE FOR YOU EACH TIME WE GET TOGETHER. STILL, SOMEONE RECENTLY ASKED WHY WE NEED YOUR CALL. LET ME ANSWER YOU LIKE THIS: IF YOU SHOWED UP AT YOUR NEIGHBOUR’S AT SUPPER TIME WITHOUT GIVING THEM NOTICE, WOULD YOU EXPECT THAT THEY MADE ENOUGH FOR YOU TOO? THANKS FOR YOUR COOPERATION, AND YOUR TIME SPENT CALLING US!

IF THERE IS AN OUTING IN EDMONTON THAT IS NOT TOO EXENSIVE, THAT YOU THINK OTHERS WOULD LIKE TO GO TO, PLEASE LET US KNOW. WE ARE SHORT OF MONEY AT THE MOMENT, SO WE MUST KEEP OUR OUTINGS WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS. THE COST OF THE BUS DOUBLES IF WE LEAVE THE LIMITS AT ALL.
