The regular monthly Members’ Luncheon of the Vancouver Island Ex-Cadet Club will be held Thursday, 03 May 2018 at the CFB Esquimalt Wardroom.

Cost: $15.00 per attendee to be paid in cash at the event. (You will need a ticket to get a meal.)

Intention to attend: Members are requested to respond with their intentions for this event as early as possible, but NO LATER THAN 1700 Tues 01 May to the Club Event Coordinator so that he can provide an accurate attendance number to the galley. Willy Anderson can be contacted either at or by phone at +1(250)370-1590.

Name Tags: Members are requested to wear their name tags. If you wish to procure one please contact the Club Secretary at

Trays, Dinnerware, & Cutlery: Your Club Executive has arranged, at no additional cost to individual members, to “upscale” our luncheons more to the style to which we were accustomed. Table linens, napkins, and water will be provided at each table. A coffee service will be provided nearby our section of the Wardroom Dining Room. An additional person will be provided by the Wardroom to bus the tables after we are finished our meals.

NOTA BENE: Immediately following the completion of our Luncheon we will engage in the 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Vancouver Island Ex-Cadet Club. We encourage all members in good standing to remain after the Luncheon and attend the AGM. During the AGM Archie Brown, Old Brigade Executive Representative, will gift the Class of ’73 their Old Brigade ties, in preparation for entering the Old Brigade later this year. (See the immediately preceding two posts.)

Bon appétit!
