Good Afternoon Lewy Warriors!
Can you believe that the month is already over?! We're back with another monthly update and we have some great news! But first, we want to thank everyone for their patience as we dealt with some delays and interruptions over the past two months. We hope you have all had a great September and enjoyed the end of the summer. It's been a little stop and go for us but we're ready to travel full stream ahead into the holiday season.
As previously stated, we've extended CLBDI's second digital art show to Thanksgiving weekend. Today, we're excited to announce that we're doing a one day in-person CLBDI event and art show at Three Sisters Cultural Centre in St. Jacob's, Ontario on the 22nd of October. This event will happen after the digital portion of the event is over and will feature presentations from our founder Carol and advisory board member and neurologist Dr. Pasternak, a look at our upcoming digital LBD presentation, new art pieces, drinks, snacks, and free CLBDI literature. It runs from 12 PM until 9 PM with drinks available and presentations happening after 5 PM. All art pieces that don't sell online will be available to purchase and, if your wall is full, we will also have a booth set up for donating to Dr. Pasternak's LBD research directly and a limited number of shirts available. Our show is also the same day as the Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour in St. Jacob's so there will be plenty of culture to take in and studios to visit. Best of all? It's free!
We're working on (finally) getting original CLBDI content on to Youtube and our first LBD presentation will be available shortly after the art show. More information to come. We've also added a bunch of new links and resources to our LBD Resources page with more to be added in the coming months. If you have any suggestions or links that we should check out, please contact us through our website, email, or even a DM on Facebook. We're always looking to add more to our archive.
We're also saying goodbye and sending best wishes to our UWO liaison, Emily Grass, as she moves to another position and welcoming Ashely Irvine back to the fold as our new liaison. Emily has been fantastic and we appreciate everything she has done for us. You can find all of Ashley's contact information on our LBD Research Fund page. One of the amazing things that Emily implemented before her departure is a new online landing page specifically for LBD donations that will be added online very soon. We're looking forward to seeing it go live and hope that it streamlines the donation process for everyone.
We'll be back in a month with our usual monthly update plus a recap of the art show, new CLBDI content, and some ideas about what we're doing this holiday season. Have a wonderful October!
