Events, first week of February, 2018

We hope you can join us on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2018 for Coffee and Treats at the Alexis Nihon from 2pm to 3:30pm. We would be just outside the food court and Winners on the second floor of Alexis Nihon. Hope to see you there! Maybe we could see a cheapie Tuesday movie as well.
We filled out an application for WASM to walk in the St. Patrick's Parade for 2018. The parade is on Sunday, March 18, 2018, starting at noon. We would have to get there by 12:30pm. The walk for us would be about 40 minutes. It won't be on St. Catherine street this year as there will be construction. It may possibly be from De Maisonneuve and Bleury to Mackay, then turn on Mackay and end on Mackay and René Lévesque. We are really counting on some of you to participate. It would be great if we had at least 20 members in the parade. We could probably squeak by if we had 10. Please, would you tell me if you are interested. Thanks so much. Maybe you could show up at the Alexis Nihon tomorrow at 2pm and we could discuss details. Walking in the parade would be a great way to get our WASM club known to the public and it should be a lot of fun! 

In addition, we will also be filling out an application the end of March for the Canada Day Parade. Who would be interested in walking in that one? All you have to do if you are interested is reply to me with the parade you are interested in okay! Thanks so much! 
THURSDAY, February 8 — 12:30 to 1:30 pm
For the Atwater Library Lunchtime Series, Robert N. Wilkins, historian and author of Montreal 1909, brings us back in time for fascinating glimpses into Montreal life just over a hundred years ago.

At the McCord Museum: Gabor Szilasi: The Art World in Montreal, 1960 – 1980, from
December 7, 2017 to April 29, 2018. This exhibition of unpublished photographs by Gabor Szilasi (born 1928) features images from art openings and other artistic events held in Montreal between 1960 and 1980. Shot in a spontaneous documentary style, they immortalize the people, places and vitality of Montreal's art scene at a time of social and cultural upheaval.  Although Szilasi is one of Quebec's best-known living photographers, this significant aspect of his work has never been publicly displayed.
