Dear DPAC folks,

Please note that due to the extreme weather on the way (starting already), we are CANCELLING tonight's DPAC meeting.

Environment Canada is warning that a wind storm is upon us, with squalls possible, including rain, hail, snow and/or thunderstorms.  They are asking folks to stay off the roads and stay safe.  Power might even be knocked out (it was off for some 200 of us this morning).

Please don't attempt to drive tonight in this wild weather.  Batten down the hatches, hug your wee ones, and ride out the storm safely tucked in with a cup of cocoa.

I'll send some correspondence separately that we were going to chat about tonight.

On behalf of your exec, stay safe everyone!

Welcome back to DPAC, PAC representatives,

Our first meeting is on Tuesday Sept 19 at the Henry Grube Centre at 7pm.

Please let me know if you have any agenda items you'd like me to add.

I'll have a few printed copies of the agenda at the meeting if you forget to bring yours along.

Please have a discussion with your PAC:  What education sessions would you like DPAC to help bring to the SD?  We can host speakers and workshops and networking sessions - what do you need?

See you on Tuesday!
