Book Notes Day Book Club: Tuesday, June 14th, 12 NOON at Aqua Restaurant on Water St. Please call Hana at 738-0266 by Friday June 10th if you plan to attend, so that she can finalize the arrangements at the restaurant. This will be our last regular book club meeting for this membership year. We shall enjoy the interesting fare at AQUA restaurant at 310 Water Street. We will meet there at 12 NOON which should give us plenty of time to engage in a discussion of Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants while waiting for our main course, as well as planning future reading selections, and exchange books, Chinese auction style with coffee and dessert. Please wrap your contribution, the mystery is half of the enjoyment. Our June selection is Sara Gruen’s, Water for Elephants: This selection replaces the originally planned discussion of Anna Karenina, which will take place in September, once we are settled in our routines after the summer break.
SUMMER - Although the recent series of foggy days could make you think there is no such thing as summer in Newfoundland and Labrador, one of these days you will be surprised to wake up into a lovely warm sunny day. Try to participate in one of the many activities planned for Canada Day in communities on the Avalon. Music enthusiasts shall find many concerts scheduled as part of Festival 500, while sports fans will enjoy the annual St. John's Regatta on the first Wednesday in August. For more ideas visit the official site of the City of St. John's, Mile One, Arts and Culture Centres, The Scope on line or as a free publication available at many local stores. Watch for caplines' arrival at Middle Cove, and do not miss the Annual Blueberry Festival at Brigus. Make the most of the shortest summer in Canada.
