Programme

PNQG PROGRAMME 2022-23

A silver lining from the pandemic is that we will continue to meet via Zoom format during the cold, snowy months of Jan/Feb/Mar.  We will have 7 in-person meetings in Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec(*), Apr(*), May, Jun (pivoting to zoom format if necessary).  In-person meetings will be held at Armour Heights Presbyterian Church, 105 Wilson Avenue, Toronto at 7:30pm.

 (*) For the Dec and Apr meetings, our speakers will be virtual and we will “watch” as a group at the church.  While you can watch the speaker portion virtually at home, the remainder of the meeting will be unavailable virtually.

As always, guests are welcome either virtually or in-person for a fee of $10 per meeting which can be paid by cash at an in-person meeting or click here to pay for a virtual meeting.  A zoom link will be forwarded to you a few days prior to the meeting.
