    Let's Meet: 1st ICC Pub Night

    Dear friends,

    For the first time, the active volunteers of ICC are bringing a series of monthly pub nights.

    Toronto’s cold winter is on its way, so we think monthly get together is the best way to warm it up !

    These events are open to public (non-members) and absolutely casual. Bring along friends and/or family members. The point is to spend a few fun hours together, have a couple of beers and some fries and maybe make some new friends :)

    We’ll meet once a month, get to know each other, build rapport and trust that hopefully leads to an engaging and fun community for the coming years.

    Hopefully, one day, we can make this small gatherings into one of our communities’ largest :)

    Invite your friends, RSVP and hope to see you all there.

    This event is organized by ICC's Public Relations Committee.
