W2 Belongs To Me – Spring 2012

W2 Belongs To Me - Spring 2012

Saturday March 24 2012 from 2-6pm  at the W2 Media Cafe

Deepen your relationship with W2 this coming weekend!

It has been six months since opening the W2 Media Cafe and we are thrilled with the response and impact of our public programs. We have produced more than 100 community events and served tens of thousands of visitors on our 3-levels in the Woodward’s heritage building.

While building the centre we are facing serious financial challenges to both operate and complete our 10,000 sq ft space. This year, W2 was more than 85% self-funded so our future is definitely in our own hands. We talk about W2 being people-powered and this is the spirit we hold when creating programs and services, finishing our space, and operating each and every day. We look forward to seeing you at W2 for some of our diverse programs, and having you participate in the way that is most meaningful for you.

The W2 Board of Directors is inviting members to this afternoon session and reception to provide an overview of the many programs and service we have up and running. This is your opportunity to learn more about what we are doing, help you connect with people with similar interests, and get more involved with programs and committees that need your help now.

While you are here today, activate your “W2 Belongs to Me” member card to start benefiting from your loyalty to W2!
