The President’s Message

Welcome to another exciting season at the St. James Literary Society! For our one hundred and twenty-first year, we have prepared a program offering a great variety of thought-provoking events designed to be both informative and entertaining. We hope they will appeal to the
broad interests of our members and non-members alike.
We are pleased to announce that some of our events will again take place at the John A. Simms Community Centre in Montreal West. Some of our other meetings will be held at St Jax (formerly St. James the Apostle Church) where coffee and cookies will be provided before each lecture which, we hope, will encourage everyone to socialize.
This year, our wine event will be held in conjunction with the Royal Montreal Curling Club at their premises on de Maisonneuve just west of Guy. The session at the Montreal Neurological Institute will be given in their auditorium on University Street.
In recent years, we have been posting all of our happenings on Meetup.com where we now have over 1,000 followers. As a reminder, our website provides you with our calendar of coming events.
In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to remember the late Sharon Browman who was a very important member of the Executive Committee of the St. James Literary Society. She will be missed by all.
We would really like you to join us at the events presented in this program… please remember to bring a friend, no charge.
I look forward to welcoming you in September.
