HAI Holiday Party
The holidays are often a time for reflection and connection. Ian and Ellen warmly welcome you to their home for a Holiday celebration. Please feel free to invite your friends, partners, family members... all are welcome. We invite you to bring a small wrapped gift and participate in a special gift exchange. Please keep it under $5, (no really, under $5, it's all about how we exchange them that matters), and we'll aim to do the exchange around 9. Please bring some food and/or drink to share. Don’t worry about buying or making anything fancy, just whatever you feel inspired to bring ... storebought or home-made items are equally welcome. Anything that speaks to your own holiday traditions would be amazing. We will have some snacks and non-alcoholic beverages out, feel free to bring some of your own to share (BYOB). Suggested donation of $5 to help fund those who need financial assistance for the HAI weekend workshops. Allergy warning: A dog and two cats live here too. Unfortunately, this location is not wheelchair accessible as there are 3 steps from the walkway into the house and the main floor bathroom is small. Please contact us for more info. HAI Canada is committed to fostering a harassment-free environment where all are treated with respect and dignity:
