That's what we were celebrating at our 31st Annual Aniversary Dinner. The Rivers Edge Golf Club may not have seen such a wacky bunch of diners in a long time! True to our theme of The Beat Goes On (an old Sonny and Cher song) many of us dressed up in 60s and 70s costume! Sonny and Cher actually turned up (aka Presdient Debbie Speck and V-P Michael Brooks). A motley bunch we certainly were!
We had a splendid meal, catered by Bruce Kellar and his helpers, great music from Steve Wright and Ernie Demuth, and a lot of fun. The "serious" part of the evening was the presentation of awards by former President Dianne Martin and also by Sonny and Cher. The list of recipients was long and included a special presentation to Jim Sopha who was honoured with the Provincial Life Membership for many hours of devoted volunteering. Cheers for Jim! Our Auxiliary President Debbie Speck was honoured with a Certificate of Appreciation, as was Moose FM for its support throughout the Radiothon. The high point of the evening, however, was the presentation of $50,000 to Kim Bishop and Jean Menard who accepted on behalf of the hospital fund.
Let's all pat ourselves on the back for another year of successful fund-raising. Truly, The Beat Goes On!
Looking forward to another great fund-raising season in 2017!
