Coffee Party, Fri May 4, Calgary
Hello Microcredit Supporter,
Be our guest at a coffee party at 9:00 AM on the morning at the start of our District Conference.   We will gather at the historic Simmons Building 618 Confluence Way SE Calgary, AB and have you on your way by 11:15.
Our entire D5360 Microfinance Team hopes to greet you at the Coffee Party. We are celebrating with this party the many hours (years) of microcredit activity in which our district has been engaged. There will be Honduras coffee, tasty pastries from Sidewalk Citizen a tour of the Coffee Roaster and an update on Phase V of HECD - celebrating over $1.5 Million dollars donated to date. This is our way of saying thanks.
Our convention location at the Hyatt is a few minutes away from the Simmons Building, Headquarters for Phil and Sebastian Coffee Roasters. In nice weather, one can enjoy a pleasant walk but there is ample parking adjacent to the P&S Roasters.

Please RSVP so we have the appropriate arrangements made.
Warmest regards,
Debbie Barry,
D5360 Microfinance Task Force
