To: Flies & Lies List

Hi Folks,

Just a reminder that our first Flies & Lies, for the upcoming year, is at the Sackville Legion at 7:00 pm, Tuesday, Sept 10th.

Flies & Lies starts at 7:00 pm and ends when we all leave. It is held on the bottom floor of the Calais Branch, Royal Canadian Legion, 45 Sackville Cross Rd, Lower Sackville on the following dates:

10 & 25 SEP; 8 & 30 OCT; 12 & 27 NOV; 10 DEC 2013
14 & 29 JAN; 11 & 26 FEB; 11 & 26 MAR; 8 & 30 APR 2014

*** On Nov 27 we will meet upstairs in the Sun Room as there is a Legion function that evening. See the note below regarding how to access this area.


There will be times this year that we may be bumped upstairs due to a paid Legion function. If you arrive for Flies & Lies and find a different group of people there that means we will meet upstairs at the back of the Legion in the Sunroom. Go outside then around to the back of the Legion, up the stairs and buzz the bartender for entrance.
