THURSDAY DOWNTOWN AT 6PM: YKNOT forum on Youth Employment

Posted: February 17th, 2015 | Tags: , , | No Comments »

From the Windsor Star:

Are you a young Windsor resident with an interesting or humorous job search story to tell? Did you get your current job from a posting on a job site or did you land it by networking? Did luck have you in the right place at the right time or did you just keep pounding on door after door until one finally opened?

Dan Brown of YKNOT Windsor-Essex wants to hear from you. He is organizing a discussion in The Windsor Star News Cafe on youth employment in Windsor and Essex County. He is inviting panelists that can help you in your job search but he also wants to hear from young people who have found jobs and those who are still looking.

You can email Dan at dbrown@wetech-alliance.com or you can tweet him @danbrownsays.

The forum is set for Thursday, February 19th, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. The public is welcome. Attendance is free. The discussion will be streamed live to the web and made available for on-demand replay.

Community Christmas Dinner 2014!

Posted: December 11th, 2014 | Tags: , , | 2 Comments »

Community Christmas Dinner

Skip to ticket registration

The Green Bean Cafe is excited to announce our third annual Community Christmas Dinner! We know that every year in our neighbourhood hundreds of students stick around the university campus for the holidays. In addition, there are many families and individuals around us looking for new ways to celebrate the Christmas season. The Community Christmas Dinner is our idea to draw these two groups of people together and unite them around a traditional Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.

The dinner will be held on Christmas Day (December 25) at noon. We’ll be eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, squash and delicious assortment of desserts.

If you’re an International Student this meal is for you! We really encourage you either take part in the International Student Centre‘s Host for the Holidays program or come over to the café and join us for dinner. It’s a great way to experience an authentic Canadian holiday! If you need it, we will have vegetarian options for you to enjoy.

Plan on bringing kids? Perfect! Christmas Dinner is no fun without kids running around. We’ll have some special treats for the kids and we’ll be playing a Christmas movie after the dinner.

We’re also excited to announce that this dinner is a totally free gift to our neighbourhood. To reserve your seat, all you have to do is put down a $5 fully refundable deposit. The $5 deposit helps us confirm our numbers for the meal. When you arrive for the dinner, the $5 is refunded to you! If you pay a deposit and don’t show up for the dinner, thanks, you’ve helped cover our cost! You can register and pay for the deposit online  (just scroll to the bottom of this page) or you can also get your ticket (and pay your deposit) anytime at the cafe.

To help make this all happen, we’re working with a great group of volunteers, the special help from our neighbours, University Community Church. If you are interested in volunteering  interested in volunteering for this event please look here for our complete volunteer package.

We love our neighbourhood and we’re so excited to be able to give back a little bit of all the good things that you have all done for us!

Ben and Michelle and the Green Bean Cafe Team
