It's party time!
On Wednesday 18th January we will be celebrating Weegie Wednesday's 10th Birthday. It'll be an earlier start than usual at 7pm in the Back Room of the Terrace Bar in CCA.
There will be a free welcome drink when you arrive and a slice or two of Saramago's excellent pizza at 8pm. Bring a friend - it's a party!
The celebration will include the announcement of the winner of the first Weegie Shorts competition in a small presentation. Then everyone can have a piece of the special birthday cake which we'll be cutting immediately afterwards. Yummy!
We want to have a display of as many Weegie Wednesday successes as possible. If you have a book written by a Weegie Wednesday member and published within the past ten years, please bring it along to add to the display - remember to mark your name inside so we can give it back at the end of the evening.
All are welcome – both First-timers and Old-timers. Looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!
