REMINDER - Flamenco Society of Edmonton's Annual General Meeting

THE FLAMENCO SOCIETY'S ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING is fast approaching! It will be held on Friday, November 4th, 2016, 7:30 PM at Marr Mac Dance Studio, 8627 – 109 Street, Edmonton, with the Flamenco Market after the meeting. Please note the following times:

7:30 to 7:45 PM – Flamenco Market Drop-Off: if you have any flamenco related items you’d like to sell (shoes, dresses, fans, polka-dot fabric, etc.), they can be dropped off before the meeting. Please provide hangars for any flamenco clothing and label all items with price tags (preferably pinned to the item, so the tags don’t fall off.) We expect more great things for sale than ever, so if you’re looking to buy that special skirt, dress, or pair of gently-used shoes, come check them out!

7:45 to 8:30 PM – The Annual General Meeting: an agenda will be e-mailed to all members prior to the meeting.

8:30 to 9:15 PM – Flamenco Market: please allow for cash transactions only. The Executive is not responsible for individual sales between members. These will be transacted between Society members only.

If you haven't yet renewed your membership, you can do so at the AGM. Come share your passion for flamenco with us! Get involved and find out what the Society is planning for the coming year. We look forward to seeing you!
