What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than to join Mrs. Frank Hokum (aka Sheila Norgate) as she hosts an evening of missives on the matter of amour: passion, jealousy, heartache, love gone awry, love gone alright: heartbreak, hilarity, awkward, and emboldened.
The lineup of love struck scribes includes Sandy Duncan, Debbie Marshall, Carol Martin, Susan Yates, Jean Wyenberg, Miranda Holmes, Philip McAdam, and Naomi Wakan.
Join in on the fun, whether single or paired up! Wine Bar, a fabulous raffle, and refreshments available!
When: Valentines Day (Feb 14th) 7pm – doors open at 6:30pm
Where: Gabriola Arts and Heritage Centre, 476 South Rd.
