On Saturday, July 21, 2012 3 Cornbury members set up a table at the Vancouver Public Library which was holding it’s first GLBTQ Information Fair.
Sharon, Gail and Joy arrived a bit before the setup time of 9:30 and had a coffee and then we set up our table. We were sharing a table with the Library (we were a little late in registering for the event) and Sharon had created a number of brochures and business cards, and a Banner, Joy had brought her laptop and we set these up to their best advantage.
I can’t say that we had a huge number of people wandering by but we did distribute at least 20 brochures and a few business cards during the hours of 10 and 2. We certainly made contact with other groups that were there and we’ll just have to wait and see what kind of results we get. To this end, I would like to encourage people who are reading this as a result of the fair to enter a comment.
We were set up in the Library Promenade which is the general area just outside of the library. Unfortunately, it was very humid but either we got used to it or it got less humid as the time went by. It was a nice place to hold the fair but my hearing problems made it a bit difficult to hear with all the background noise.
After it was over, we all went to ABC to have a light lunch and to discuss the results. We were all in agreement that the event was worth the effort but hoped that next year, there would be more people. Romayne was there and gave us a free dessert!
