Happy New Year!!

Cdr. Mike’s Memo to all Members and Friends 



Have you had enough of the ice and snow?  Are you ready to go boating?

Well, the Vancouver International Boat Show is just around the corner. It starts Wednesday January 18th through to Sunday January 22nd

District Commander Dave has asked me to send out an urgent request to our membership for assistance at our PMD CPS-ECP booth at the Boat show. As a volunteer, you just have to promote our organization to anyone walking by the booth. Promotional material will be on hand along with course details. It’s not hard, smile and answer questions. If you don’t know the answer, help is around or you can take down a number and we can contact the person. If you are available, please contact Lynda at lbennett4277@gmail.com with a few time options. Hey, your help gets you a free ticket into the boat show. Now that’s a deal.
