Book Sales are always popular.  The May Court Library at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital holds periodic book sales in the rotunda outside the hospital cafeteria.  Stay tuned for the date of the next book sale, which will be held in June.


Soup Lunches

Soup lunches are a great way to meet fellow members or introduce a friend to the May Court Club. Why not carpool with a May Court friend in your zone, offer a ride to a new member, or bring a member you haven’t seen for a while? Come for good company and interesting soups and sweets.  A choice of soup, bread, cheese and dessert, with tea or coffee is always offered.

The next Soup Lunch will be on Friday, May 18th, 2018 at noon. To reserve a place call the Club Secretary (613-733-4681) by Wednesday, May 16th and pay $5.00 at the door.  This will be the last lunch before the fall, so come and talk to fellow members about their summer plans.  You are also invited to bring a non-member friend to introduce them to the May Court Club.
