On Saturday, September 30th, members of Vancouver-Langara met for our Annual General Meeting.

Our AGM has grown in attendance every year for the past three years, and this year was no exception.

We gathered at the highly popular, and a neighbourhood institution: Gigi Blin Market Cafe, in the heart of Marpole. They're friendly, highly accommodating and ... the coffee is great!
