GPG Expresso Gathering

Fourteen GPG members attended our January afternoon GPG Espresso Gathering at Planet Bean’s Gordon Street South Café.  Fueled by good drinks and treats, the discussions were many and varied, with some of them lasting almost three hours!

In a few weeks, I’ll notify everyone of the venue for our February Evening Espresso Gathering, at 7:00 pm on Wednesday the 28th of February.

Looking forward to seeing you then.

GPG Expresso Gathering at Williams Fresh Café

Last night 17 Guild members gathered at Williams Fresh Café. 

The members present ranged from long-time members up to a member who just joined last week.  In addition to the espresso/coffee/tea and hot chocolate (with whipped cream and marshmallows and a cherry on top J!), there were many interesting and enjoyable discussions, including a range of much appreciated help and advice.

Our next gathering will be on the 24th of January 2018 at 2:00 pm with the venue being announced early in January (there will be no December gathering due to the Christmas holidays).

This is the first gathering of members of the Guelph Photographers Guild "coffee" outing.  These meetings will take place on the fourth Wednesday of each month.  They will alternate between afternoon and evening meetings.

Here is a group photo of the 1st GPG Espresso/Coffee/Tea gathering held at Planet Bean’s South Guelph Café on Gordon Street.
