“Green Wood is a community, and this is a time when we need to look after one another. We feel community gatherings are not wise at this time, but staying in touch is important.” -Caleb Carisse, Green Wood Coalition Board Chair
Finally, we will postpone IMAGINATE, our Evening of Possibility and one-day social awareness conference that would have taken place April 16 & 17. We look forward to rescheduling this event as soon as possible. These are difficult times. We look forward to continuing our normal programs as soon as it is safe to do so. Further updates will be posted on our website, and on our Facebook page, Green Wood Coalition. Feel free to contact our staff at email@example.com or 905-885-8700.
