On 17 Mar 2018, we held our annual Spring potluck dinner. Attendance was great; the clubhouse was full! We all felt it was “long time no see” and were glad to get together again.
Our annual Christmas lunch was held on Sat 2 Dec 2017 at the University Golf Club. We were joined by members of the Kerrisdale Lawn Bowling Club. A great time was had by all.
At the lunch, we celebrated the 6 years of excellent leadership provided by our recently-retired President, Cathleen Rowlette. In this photo, our new President, Charles Hou, is giving Cathleen a small gift in commemoration.
Amongst the revellers were Fran Holmes-Green (standing) with Sue Girling (left) and Val Macfadyen (right):
