We meet on the THIRD THURSDAY every month. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. in Room 200 at the Toronto Public Library, Northern District Branch, 40 Orchard View Blvd (just a block north of Eglinton subway station on Yonge, or half a block west of Yonge). Take the elevator in the lobby to the second floor. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please note: a $5 fee is charged for non-members.

Join Us!

Interested in supper before the meeting? Starting around 5:30 p.m. (and a few will likely arrive earlier) some of us will get together for dinner at the HO SU Bistro, 2352 Yonge St. It’s just around the corner from the library. The food is Japanese and Korean and the prices are very reasonable.
