Cortes Exchange
Manson's Hall. Friday night, Dec 3. 7pm. Doors open at 6:30.

Come hear from local currency expert, Michael Linton, about how Cortes may benefit from making its own money or local trading systems.

Michael invented the LETS exchange system in the early 80s, which is still in use in 1000s of communities throughout the world. Most recently, he and his team have launched Community Way, a new and unique cash-currency model in place in the Comox Valley, soon to start in Nelson and Vancouver.

Come learn how these tools can strengthen your business, community group, cooperative, or cause, and the local economic system at large.

All are welcome. By donation, suggested $5-15.

Childcare also available by donation.

For more info, call 0311.

See you there!
