Around Westmount Issue 17

Hello and welcome to Around Westmount Issue 17

This issue is filled with upcoming major events to register for, smaller events that are just fun, and just some other fun things.

With all the great events that are happening in Westmount and just beyond, I thought this would be a good time to share what Westmount artist and personality Eva Prager had to say about the joys of events. She told me there are four separate parts to enjoying an event.

First you receive the invitation, are happy you were invited, plan to attend, and RSVP.

Second you enjoy anticipating the event…what the event is about, who you re going with, who you are going to see, what, if anything, you are going to take with you, and what you are going to wear.

Third it is finally the event day, you go and savour and enjoy. Thoroughly.

And fourth, the one many don’t think about, is the post event joy of  remembering it and sharing it with others… depositing it in your brain’s memory banks.

Here are some wonderful up coming events you can enjoy… listed in the order of the date they are happening… except the first four Save the Dates!.
