YaleWomen Ontario is hosting a mid-summer dinner and discussion in the west end of Toronto on July 22. Drinks will begin at 6 pm and dinner will occur at around 7 pm. This will be followed by a brief presentation and discussion on the topic of yoga and the art of practising law...or life - no inversions required. Seeking balance and contentment is not a modern phenomenon and the ancients had much to say that is true for all times and in all places, even a Garden Party in Etobicoke.
Please RSVP or direct any questions to Christine at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Christine can also provie you with a link to sign up for pot-luck food contributions.
