July/August 2017 – President’s Message

A message from Gord Kruger, Evergreen Club president

Hello Everyone!!!….it has arrived in all it’s splendor and glory….summer is here and when it is, the Comox Valley has got to be one of the most wonderful places to be. This end of June weather is all we needed to be convinced that all was not lost.

After several weeks of misgivings many amongst us were convinced that summer was only a dream and that rain and wind
would be the norm…..not so!!!! …….time to get busy with all those great summer activities that make this place as great as it is.

The 150th version of Canada Day is about to happen and we will be part of it with our July 1st “Tea Dance” at the Native Sons Grand Hall. With music provided by the Georgia Strait Big Band it will be a wonderful day of dancing and enjoying the music. Cake and Refreshments will be served and it’s all FREE. It will be hosted by our outstanding Evergreen Volunteers and it all starts at 2pm. Many other great events and activities will be going on throughout the day at Lewis and Simms Parks and the day will start with the big parade down 5th St.

Another July activity will be our Market Days Pancake Breakfast on Saturday July 22 in the Conference room at the Filberg Centre. It goes from 7:30 ’till 11 am and serves up a great breakfast for FIVE BUCKS…..can’t beat that for a breakfast deal. After a satisfying breakfast you can continue with the great deals in downtown Courtenay and enjoy all that Market Days has to offer.

Things will slow down a bit at the club over the summer months of July and August. Some of the activities enjoy a summer hiatus while others carry right on with regular programs. Your Executive will not be meeting again until September and that means your Club Reps will not be meeting with the Executive until then either. I would like to pass along many thanks to all the Club Reps who give of their time to keep all our various programs going. Their leadership and effort is what makes it all work and makes our club so great.

Just want to remind everyone that there will be a full compliment of Friday Night Dances during July and August…….bands are booked for every Friday night during those two months. Your summer guest are welcome at the Friday Night dances so bring them along for some great evenings of dancing.

I want to wish you all a most enjoyable summer…..Stay Safe and enjoy the many amenities that this wonderful island provides……

Adios for now….gk
