Early in October our speaker will be Brian Brennan, author and former journalist.  His talk will focus on the book he thinks would be of most interest to us, which is Leaving Dublin: Writing My Way from Ireland to Canada, an autobiography which – among other things – covers the twenty-five years he spent as a columnist and features writer at the Calgary Herald.  It offers the only detailed account ever published of the 1999-2000 strike of editorial employees that led to most of us leaving the paper.  If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, please let Sheila Newel know ( so we can order you a copy, which Brian will bring when he gives his presentation.  The book sells for $20 a copy.


Our speakers today were Wilner and Leonora Pagaling.  They are the 
founders of an organization called Bread Beyond Borders, which started 
out as a way of providing food for malnourished children in the 
Philippines.  They started small but It's grown to a point where they 
are feeding over 2,000 children through 25 stations in 10 provinces in 
the Philippines and they hope to expand further. In addition to food, 
they are sending small toys, hygienic supplies and school supplies to the 
Philippines to be distributed.  I've attached a copy of one side of 
their brochure with some information.

They are also providing food support within the immigrant community in 

Recently, they have teamed up with the Calgary Millennium Club to drill a 
well in the Philippines.
