What in the world is LEGION WEEK?
It's a week of promoting every Royal Canadian Legion branch in Canada. Although not obligated, it is recommended that every branch organizes activities. In Ontario, Legion Week is the third week of September. Our Alexandria Branch #423 will be hosting events from September 14 to 22. All activity proceeds raised by Branch #423 during that week, will go to the Homeless Veterans Assistance Fund! How amazing is that!
That being said, I decided to make my contribution to this week of community gathering. Why not have a calligraphy night all while supporting our Canadian veterans?
In this laid-back workshop, you will learn the basics of modern brush calligraphy. We will explore how to form beautiful letters and words, and finish, with creating a sweet greeting card.
No experience needed! For those of you who are curious and want to try out before the significant investment in an advanced workshop, this is ideal! If you have some experience, this is a great time to practice and to support our Legion.
For $20, not only you are supporting our Veterans but, you’ll take home a brush pen, a few sheets of calligraphy paper and your finished artwork. PLUS.... you will get a voucher for a drink from the bar (um...I'm thinking Girls night?).
Please reserve your spot in advance if you wish to participate as space is limited and to make sure I have supplies for you!
