30-Day Writing Challenge – Day 11
I nearly forgot about it but tomorrow the Guardian’s Best Animal Rescue Foundation is holding is holding its annual Quebec Animal Rescuer of the Year Award event in NDG. It’s a great way to meet local rescuers and other animal lovers, find out more about what rescue groups are doing for animals and support them by making a donation. There’s also plenty of free food and beverages. I went a few years ago and it was amazing.
This year’s lineup includes the granting of unsung hero awards, certificates of appreciation for young volunteers, cash grants to three local rescues and the awarding of the 2016 Quebec Animal Rescuer of the Year.
Admission is free but you need to register your attendance before going. I’ve posted this late so if you see this on Saturday morning, register right away.
Bring cash to buy raffle tickets and if you have a well-behaved dog, bring him or her along too.
When: November 12, 2016, 5-9 p.m.
Where: Monkland Community Centre, 4410 West Hill Avenue, Montreal (you can get there from Benny and Terrebonne ) or from West Hill and Monkland.
You can register and get a free ticket here.
Help WordPress from the comfort of your home
Love languages? If you have some free time today and have translation ability, the WordPress Polyglots team is holding its second Global WordPress Translation Day on November 12 where you can “translate WordPress into one of more than 160 languages.”Everyone is invited to join and you can help from anywhere in the world.”
Even if you don’t know a second language and you’re limited to English, you can learn about English variants and help make sure any English is correct for where you live since “English is spoken and written differently in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.”
Based on what I’ve read so far, Translation Day has already begun here in the EST time zone, since it starts Saturday, November 12th, 2016, at 0:00 UTC and ends 24 hours later. Discover the correct time by visiting See what time that is for you!
