Virtual Meeting with Mayor Jeff Lehman

woodwork: “measure twice, cut once.”


This webcast with Mayor Lehman can be viewed on carp.ca


There’s a motto shared with apprentice carpenters who are learning the trade of woodwork: “measure twice, cut once.”  It’s a valuable lesson to the student, who soon learns that once a piece of wood is cut, it can’t be uncut, and a new, costly, piece of wood is required to get the job done correctly.
The same maxim holds true for electronic newsletters. Once sent, they can’t be unsent.

I want to apologize to the members of the Barrie CARP Chapter for recent invitations that were sent with incorrect information, and to provide you with a “measured twice” update on the date and time of our upcoming meeting with Mayor Jeff Lehman.
