This meeting is currently at capacity with pre-registrations but it will be broadcast via Facebook Live starting at 7:30 pm. It will be available here.

Dates and Time: All meetings start at 7:30 pm, on the first Tuesday of the month.

Location: Beaconsfield, the Carriage House, corner of West and Kent Street, Charlottetown.   

Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, all participants must pre-register by Contacting Connie Gaudet.  Carriage House seating is much more limited now (we can have up to 37 people sitting in 2s, 3s & 4s).  and we ask that when pre-registering participants advise whether they will be attending as an individual or as part of a household group so the seating can be set up properly.  Due to limited seating, preference will be given to members. 

Participants must enter the Carriage House via the front door, provide their contact information and apply hand sanitizer which is supplied; respect the two-metre social distance rule; wear a face mask that covers the mouth and nose. When the presentation is ended, participants must follow instructions on queuing up to allow exit by the side door. General restrictions for entry are also in effect regarding health and travel status. 


  • Attendance for contact-tracing purposes will be taken on site.
  • Physical distance of 2 metres with individuals who are not part of one’s household must be maintained.
  • Wearing a non-medical mask is strongly recommended.
