The event was held at the Scottish Cultural Centre in downtown Marpole. The centre is an excellent facility and members were impressed by the amenities and the friendly service we experienced.
Members of the Executive arrived early to prepare the coffee and treats, and to set the stage with the traditional orange balloons. Everyone got into the act of blowing up balloons.
