Please join fellow Chapter Members for a few drinks, mezze, cheese and pizzas watching the sun go down on the lawns of Strathnairn Art Gallery on Thursday, 21 January 20201 from 6:00pm.
Stepping Stone Café will cater for us exclusively on the night, at $30 a head. Food will be presented on sharing platters on the table and will include all items on the menu (attached). The evening will be BYO, but unlimited still and sparkling water will be freely available. Desserts, tea and coffee will be able to be purchased separately.
Please let Bricet or Bob know on email@example.com if you’d like to join us for a lovely get-together at a gorgeous venue, by Monday, 11 January. If the weather is inclement, the evening will go ahead in the café inside the gallery.
Strathnairn is at 90 Stockhill Drive, Holt.
There is plenty of free parking.
For those interested, Stepping Stone is a work integration social enterprise. They originally opened Cafe Stepping Stone in Cartagena, Colombia in 2017 with the aim to provide youth living in poverty with an opportunity to have their first formal employment and receive training and support to create the futures they dreamed of. They operated successfully for over 3 years, and trained and employed over 40 youth. Unfortunately, COVID forced them to close, but they managed to find a way to reopen back home, here in Canberra.
Stepping Stone Canberra creates inclusive employment opportunities and practical training for migrant and refugee women from CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) backgrounds through a sustainable and innovative vegetarian cafe (at Strathnairn Arts). By January we will have employed over 7 women and will be on track to providing them with certified training in Hospitality and Commercial Cookery.

RSVP to Bricet or Bob on firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 11 January.
