WCA Volunteer Dinner 21 March 2010

What a pleasure it was for all of us to meet so many old and new friends with plenty of time to visit and chat, eat and drink together. Lavalight provided a wonderful musical background. Melanie Snell (with a fond memory of Norm Billesberger) received the Volunteer of the Year 2010 award for dedicated work keeping the finances of the Whonnock Community Association in good order for many years. Yes, its her on the photo--click on it to have a closer look. Noreen Wood's hard work  taking over that task was also recognized. Margaret Norman donated a gavel to the WCA to replace the stone used by the president Brad Jennings. Phil Johnson recognized 35 years of service to the community by retiring firefighter Trevor Taylor, the first recipient of the Volunteer of the Year reward back in 2005.

Click here to look at pictures I took at the event. If you've taken pictures yourself, please send them to me and I'll add them to the show. I was not lucky with a bunch of pictures I took early in the evening without flash. They turned out unsharp and with one or two exceptions they have not been included.

It glows in the night--cheers up a rainy day!

Congratulations to Phil Jonson and Bud Popadiuk for getting the new electronic sign for the Whonnock Communty Association and putting it up there on the well house.
After decades of climbing up the ladder to change the text--here we are arriving in a new age!
A few things have still to be ironed out such as showing more text at the same time.
