Friday December 20 - Hatley Park Gardens

I Nhlikanhi Alfrescoes! On Friday December 20 2019, we will returning to the Hatley Park Gardens, located in Colwood on the Royal Roads University (RRU) grounds. It is a bit of a walk up to the Main Entrance of gardens (see map), but fortunately there is a Side Entrance near the parking lot (see map) that has been open in the past, so hopefully it is open this week as well.

A map to the location can be found by clicking  here . There is no charge to visit the gardens themselves but pay parking is in effect in all RRU parking lots and is $1/hour. We'll meet in front of the parking area, under the big tree (see map) at Noon for our Show'n'Tell.

Friday December 13 - Viaduct Flats and Christmas Potluck

Tervhen Alfrescoes. This Friday December 13 2019, we will be painting at Viaduct Flats and/or on Gwen and Bob's property. Parking can be found at the Viaduct Flats parking lot, near the intersection of Viaduct Avenue and Interurban Road ( here  is a map of the location).

Our Christmas Potluck is hosted by Gwen and Bob Langford (478 Viaduct Ave) just up the street. The Potluck will begin after painting around 12:00 to 12:30. Bring something yummy to share with the group. See you all there.

At the Alfrescoes Christmas Party, we will be collecting $1.00 from all those who wish to help with the maintenance of the Alfrescoes website. The funds will go to the renewal of the domain name registration i.e. alfrescoes.com. Thanks for supporting the Alfs. (and a huge thanks to Ron Wilson for running the Alfs website!)

Road Closure: Please note that Interurban Road will be closed from the south so people will have to go up to West Saanich Rd and come down Interurban from there to Viaduct. They can go up Wilkinson to West Saanich or across from Royal Oak. Sorry for the traffic, it is a headache. They have to come down from the north rather than up from the south on Interurban.
