Hi everyone,

Welcome to the listserv for those of you who are new! I hope you all had a restful summer and are settling into the new academic year. We’re excited for another fun year of events with the Stanford ~Canadian Club~.
Next week will be hosting the annual Canadian Thanksgiving Potluck! This will be Wednesday, Oct. 10th from 7:30-9pm at Bechtel. As it is potluck style, we’d love for you to bring your own dish, drinks, or snacks. We will have a buffet with turkey, mashed potatoes, pie & more while supplies last.
We’re excited to bring together communities in celebration of the harvest while also acknowledging the colonial roots of the holiday we celebrate today (see articles below for more info on the history of Canadian Thanksgiving). Feel free to bring your friends along and I look forward to seeing you all!
Sincerely,
Brooke Mounsey
Canadian Club “Prime Minister”
