Dinner, Tuesday, November 24, 2009

A good gathering for this, the last dinner of 2009, with a special guest speaker!

Another delicious meal awaited us and we began with beef barley soup, followed by baked ham with scalloped potatoes, vegetables, and ending with a delightful trifle, tea or coffee.

Muriel reminded the Board of Directors of their meeting which she is graciously hosting at her home on Wednesday, December 2nd at 7 p.m. Please remember to bring with you some non-perishable items for a Christmas hamper for a needy family.

On Tuesday, December 8, we meet at 12 noon for the Christmas Luncheon at Gino's Restaurant, 431 East Columbia Street, New Westminster. This will be the first time the Club has chosen this venue and members are looking forward to good food and fun!

With an introduction by Paul Forseth, MP, we welcomed the Hon. Wally Oppal, QC. Speaking without notes and PowerPoint presentation, Hon. Oppal referred to his political and legal background including his tenure with the County Court of British Columbia and Supreme Court of British Columbia. He was also appointed to the British Columbia Court of Appeal and later as Attorney General of BC. Such a stellar background and now that he has the opportunity to concentrate on other matters, he enjoys reading and playing/coaching basketball!! Nancy Puri's husband Baj, a long-time friend of Wally Oppal, extended our thanks for a most memorable visit.

We will meet again next year on Tuesday, January 26, 2010, and wish you and yours all the Blessings of this Christmas Season and very best wishes for the New Year!
