AGM A Success

The White Rock/Surrey Chapter 11 AGM was held last night, Thursday, September 26th at the White Rock Community Centre Gallery.

It was a well-attended event with wonderful guest speakers including artist Chris MacClure who spoke about the International Artists Festival to be held in White Rock the week of October 21st.  Your CARP chapter will be sponsoring two artists.

There was fabulous jewelry on display by Bonnie Goodwin and her sister.

There were two speakers from ICBC including Karen Klein, the Road Safety person for White Rock/Surrey as well as driver examiner, Peter Bibby who spoke about the road testing for those 80 and over who require re-examination on the advice of their doctors. Please note, the computer DRIVE-ABLE is not mandatory…it is only a tool to help prepare you.  For further information, please see links below.
