On September 22, 2011, we had our first Alberta Romance Writers meeting of the year at our new location at the St. Mark's Lodge. As my husband is a Mason, I have been to the lodge before, but was pleased to see so many of our members come out who I haven't seen in a very long time. I believe changing our venue for the first time in 18 years helped. It was a more residential area and didn't have scary drunks wandering around outside.
Our speaker for the night was Tamara Wickwire, who in all honesty, when she walked in I thought she was a young new member!
