R:ED Christmas /
Pool Party

About 35 R:ED members took a break at this busy time to gather at The District lounge and celebrate the season with fellow residents.  Wonderful hors d'oeuvres were compliments of The District.  In addition to a great time, we gathered some food items and $110 for the Christmas Cheer Board.


R:ED Event - Summer
Cocktails 101

On Monday June 22 R:ED members gathered for an educational/social event. Andrew Penner, a former R:ED member, prepared a variety of cocktails and martinis. We had an opportunity to taste each, learn the tips and techniques and we were given the recipes as a handout (available for download from members-only section).  It was fun evening!

R:ED Meeting - Artists in the Exchange

Red may only be one colour in an artist's spectrum, but on March 25, 2009, R:ED was the only colour!  We held our 1st annual Artists in the Exchange event.  It was a great opportunity to meet local artists, hear from them and to view their work.  Hopefully, it will also lead to some sales!
