Welcome new members and visitors from the USA

[Date changed]

Jocelyne posted the message below a while back and I am now pegging our meeting to a time and place.  Let's get together for a quick social event and help out our visiting compatriots.  Look for a US flag or similar sign.  RSVP so we know how many to hold a table for.

From Jocelyne:

Met 2 ex-pats on a walk this morning along Dallas Road - Kaye from Texas and Dorian from Georgia (they both live here part time and will be hopefully joining this group!) - and now Tim Eschedor is coming to Victoria July 31 to 'scope out the area' - how about a get-together the 1st week of August? There are plenty of vineyards on the Peninsula that also offer dining - could be a fun evening as we get to know each other and show a big welcome to Americans visiting for the first time! Any thoughts?

    Havent heard back from the visitors from North Caroline - the Eschedors. So not sure they will show up :(
    Not many people coming ... wonder if its because its a holiday? or maybe it should have been held somewhere more central - like downtown Victoria?
    Well - I will be there.... see you tomorrow!

    I've known about this group for a year or so, but this will be my first time attending. See you at Romeo's.

    Umm the visitors from North Carolina are
    Leaving August 8th / so not sure this will work for them. Any chance this can be moved to the 5th or 6th?

    Scott - that sounds perfect!! Notice the 2 ladies I met on Dallas Rd have joined - and the other 2 Americans coming to visit are arriving early August from North Carolina. They will be here from July 31 to August 8 (Tim Eschedor) - if we can plan a meetup that week, we can then assist Tim in making his decision about potentially relocating to Victoria.

    I like the idea! My availability is somewhat limited, being out in Metchosin with a toddler. Happy Hours work best for me.
