Saturday morning, starting at 9:00 a.m., will be our Annual General Meeting. This is an occasion where members and Directors will review the Society’s past year. It is the time for comments, questions and further information about all of the Society’s programs and financial business. There is no cost to members who attend the annual general meeting. Come out and share your ideas for the Society!
Saturday afternoon is traditionally the time of the conference tour. Moose Mountain Motorcoach Line will once again transport us on our tour. The afternoon’s destination will be the Claybank National Historic Site, near Avonlea. We will have lunch at Claybank and a tour of the brick factory. To allow people time to start on their journey back home, the conference tour will be back in Regina in the late afternoon.
The President’s Dinner and the Annual General Meeting will both take place in the Solarium Room at the Executive Royal Hotel. The conference package per person is $80.00. Individual admission to events is also available: the President’s Dinner is $25.00 per person and the Lunch & Tour is $50.00 per person.
