Whistler’s annual town hall meeting gets underway at noon Saturday, Nov. 7 in the Whistler Conference Centre. This year’s town hall meeting includes presentations on the 2010 Olympic bid and results of the annual monitoring report, but the meeting follows more of an open house format this year, compared to the workshops that have been part of recent town hall meetings. The monitoring report will be presented at 1:15 p.m. and the Olympic bid update at 2:15 p.m. The town hall meeting winds up at 4 p.m. It’s not only shoulder season, it’s also rummage sale season. The Whistler Community Services Society’s annual Fall Rummage Sale takes place this weekend at Myrtle Philip school. The sale goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 8. Meanwhile, the Whistler Community Arts Council’s annual Christmas craft fair, the Bizarre Bazaar, takes place in the conference centre on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The first annual Whistler Arts and Crafts Experience takes place this weekend and registration has been extended until the day-of for many of the workshops. There is still space available in many of workshops including, silk scarf painting, soap stone carving, perfumery, aromatherapy, decorating paper and Christmas crafts. However, some workshops have been dropped due to lack of interest. The Experience begins at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7 and wraps up at 1:30, Nov. 8. Most courses are one hour, but there are some two and four hour courses available. Soap stone carving, chocolate making and decorating paper workshops will be held at Whistler Secondary and others will be in the Chateau Whistler Macdonald ballroom.
