We have received word that, due to various circumstances, Kevin Sullivan is unable to attend AvCon this year. We apologize to those of you who were looking forward to seeing him.

CONFIRMED: Kevin Sullivan

In the Anne of GG website’s latest news post, it reports that Kevin Sullivan will be attending AvCon this year.

UPDATE: He will be joined by Hannah Endicott-Douglas (Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning).

CONFIRMED: Michael Mahonen

We have received word that Michael Mahonen will be guest-speaking at AvCon 2009!

An important reminder for US attendees

As of yesterday, June 1, US visitors returning home from Canada are required to have the proper documentation ready at the border to present to Customs. This includes a passport (or passport card) or an Enhanced Drivers License. Children aged 16 and under will need to supply a birth certificate.

Our 2009 Charity – Good Shepherd, Toronto

Our charity for 2009 is the Toronto branch of The Good Shepherd, which provides food, clothing, and shelter for the city’s needy. (The main branch is in Hamilton.)

UPDATE! (Feb. 10): On convention weekend, not only will we be accepting monetary donations; but you will also be able to — in true Avonlea community spirit and fashion — donate non-perishable food items, clothing items, and other supplies, which will be given to them after the convention.
