Because of the success of last year’s event, the 2022 Heritage Group’s Holiday Luncheon was again held at Maxime’s Restaurant, with 26 people in attendance. Again, we were able to have a selection of entrees from which to choose and individual billing. The chit-chat was animated, sociable and lively… and regularly broken up with bouts of good-natured laughter. As well, people commented on how nice it was to have such lovely surroundings and the privacy to visit and enjoy each other’s company.
Our new Heritage Group Co-Chairs, Nancy Wheatley and Liz Omeniuk, brought greetings to the group. They also spoke about some of the engaging and timely topics coming up during the next few months of gatherings and let people know that they are open to suggestions for future topic and speaker ideas for the 2023-2024 Heritage Group year. Our new RRC support person, Michael Joyal, and our “old” RRC support person, Elena Grinshteyn, were on hand to share in our celebrations.
The Social Committee provided a variety of small holiday gifts for everyone in attendance. A high-spirited game of Holiday Trivia was once again a hit. The winner of the Trivia game was Shelley Tallin who received a $20 gift certificate for Tim Horton’s. Two couples, Dale Watts and Bluma Levine, and John and Lynne Graeb, tied for second place and each couple received a $10 gift certificate to Tim Horton’s.
The fact that no-one seemed in a hurry to leave is confirmation of another successful social gathering of our marvelous Heritage Group.
Hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday season with family and friends.
Karen Wall on behalf of the Social Committee
