Thanks to a few snow delays, there's a wealth of things going on
for city-minded people in St. John's on Tuesday the
16th. Here's a rundown:
At 5:30 PM Happy City is hosting our first
iteration of what will be a monthly Happy City
Hour - an informal gathering of people interested in the city
and its future. No agendas or formal structure, just a chance to
chat. This month's Happy City Hour will be at the venerable
Georgetown Pub on Hayward Avenue - we'll be moving to a different
neighbourhood spot each month.
At 7 PM, Councilor Dave Lane is hosting a meet-your-councilor
Q&A session at Common Ground at Harvey Road, partly
facilitated by Happy City's Josh Smee.
Also at 7 PM, the folks at the Georgestown
Neighbourhood Association are hosting "
Celebrating The Basilica: An interactive presentation",
sponsored with Susan Chalker-Browne author of her new book "The
Story of the Basilica St. John the Baptist" and Basilica historian
Anne Walsh. That's at The Lantern on Barnes Road.
Also at 7 PM, the NL Historic Trust is
hosting a Ward 4
Heritage Forum with the by-election candidates, moderated by
Shannie Duff. It's in the MMap Room at the Arts and Culture
See you there, Happy Citizens!
