Subject: Members Nite 2010
Date: Monday, November 29, 2010, 10:30 AM
The annual Members’ Nite took place at the Sagewood Amenity Center in Surrey on Saturday November 27,2010.
The function witnessed the Bens and their spouses renewing their bonds of fellowship and ties to their alma mater in an aura of camaraderie with a festive air filtering through the fleeting hours on a placid evening. The spirit of cheer and bonhomie prevalent was an indication of the cordiality and togetherness that exists amongst alumni which extends beyond British Columbia to our members in Calgary,Edmonton,Portland & San Francisco.
The socialising amongst those who graced the occasion was noteworthy and everyone was treated to a sumptuous Sri Lankan dinner preceded by the ‘spirit that cheers’.
