Dinner, Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Fruit punch is now being served during Meet and Greet, and dinner this evening began with a hearty vegetable soup. This was followed by melt-in-the-mouth pork, suitably surrounded by green vegetables and creamed potatoes with gravy; the meal was delicious and rounded off with carrot cake and cream icing!!! Enjoyed by all, dinner was a grand way to begin the evening!

Richard M. Mulcaster, Director, External Relations and Development, was our guest this evening and was eloquently introduced by Councillor Lori Williams. Richard gave an exemplary talk combined with a PowerPoint presentation (with Roch Voisine singing “I’ll always be there”) and added his own narrative outlining the Justice Institute of B.C., its past, present and future development. Having held his office for only one year, it is clear that Richard enjoys his work and is the right person to handle the challenges and opportunities that go hand-in-hand at this edifice, and its integration with BC Crown Agencies, local and International organizations. Thank you Richard and thanks too to Councillor Bill Harper for a well-deserved acknowledgment of your visit.

Join us again on Tuesday, February 24 for another delightful dinner and guest speaker: Laura Watts, Director with the Canadian Centre for Elder Care. As well, do make a note to mark Tuesday, March 24 on your calendar when Dr. Jim Lane, a family doctor in Coquitlam, will speak to us about Medical Aid to Vietnam. Two important dates of note and we look forward to seeing you!

Best wishes,
