EWB Newsletter #26: The Last One – A Haiku
by Julia Wai on Apr 14, 2013 - 8:59 PM EDT

Swamped with exams,

Brain no longer functional,

Nor is barbeque.


But coffee will brew,     

Caffeine addicts, do not fret,

at Fair Trade Corner


Winding down the year

Last EWB newsletter

Almost forgotten


What I’ll remember

For next year’s emails will be

To press the send button


But we won’t forget

This incredible year with

EWB McGill!



In this issue: 


None this week :(

Upcoming events

  1.  EWB Barbeque Cancelled for Monday, April 15th.

Ongoing events

  1. Fair Trade Mondays and Fridays (every Monday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., FDA near University entrance)



  1.      Fundraising BBQ cancelled

This is a message from the Fundraising Team:

"Hey all you grillers, servers, cashiers and cheesers! Last week's BBQ was a fantastic collaboration of EWB's finest volunteers, netting a profit of almost $600. Thank you so much for helping out! Unfortunately the one originally planned for tomorrow will not be happening as exams are approaching much too quickly. There will be many more for you to help out with in the fall semester so make sure you don't let your BBQ skills get rusty over the summer!"

Now I’m expecting high quality burgers when fall rolls around. ..



1. Fair Trade Corner

When: every Monday starting Sept 14 till April 15 from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m, until

Where: the Old Porter's Office in FDA, near the University entrance

We’re looking for volunteers to sell delicious Fair Trade goods from our booth. Sign up for 1h time slots at:

Don't worry if you're not sure what to do, an exec member will be there to coach you through.
