The board, CARP membership and friends meet on the FIRST Thursday of each month. Please feel free to invite your friends who may be interested in the various topics offered.
It is only 1 year ago that we established CARP in Richmond/Delta and now we are building a strong leadership along with a healthy membership.
At the October 2nd AGM we will be electing next years Board of Directors and providing a full update on the Chapters status including: Membership, Finances, Objectives and Goals.
This past year we have had terrific speakers delivering timely, informative seminars. This past month our Chapter 60 held its first very successful event in South Delta!
Previously we had a great Christmas function and a well-attended Valentines Day celebration. In June we produced an outstanding concert event headed up by Maestro Bramwell Tovey.
I wish to thank each and every one of you our members – for your support and participation.
We look forward to working with the membership and new board to plan more exciting events for 2014/15 in Richmond and Delta.
