FALL LUNCHEON


IT'S CBC 20 YEAR ASSOCIATION FALL LUNCHEON TIME!

Join the crowd on Wednesday, September 26th   -  Head to Beefeater's Seaside Bar & Grill near the Nanaimo ferry terminal at Departure Bay

Beefeater's Seaside Bar & Grill has been the location of choice for the CBC 20 Year Association Fall Luncheon for many years and it is a delightful place to mix and mingle with friends and former colleagues.  Everyone is welcome (spouses and friends too) so do plan to join us and spread the word to other colleagues. This beautiful spot by the water offers wonderful food reasonably priced (payment to be made at the restaurant). Free parking is available on-site for those driving to the restaurant (shared parking with Miller's Pub) and for mainlanders, this luncheon gathering has the added feature of a relaxing boat trip via B.C. Ferries and for seniors, the crossing is free.

DATE:  Wednesday, September 26. 2018

TIME:  11:30 a.m. at the restaurant.

(Mainlanders should be on the 8:45 a.m. ferry from Horseshoe Bay going to Departure Bay, Nanaimo and can plan on the 3:30 p.m. or 5:45 p.m. vessel returning.

The ferry trip is 1 hr. 40 minutes each way.

PLACE:         Beefeater's Seaside Bar & Grill, 1840 Stewart Avenue, Nanaimo – just a short walk
from the ferry terminal.

Please advise your intention of attending (and the number of people in your party with the names of guests) no later than Friday, September 21st to Peggy Oldfield at https://goo.gl/QNvaxu or 604-662-6409 [leave message at CBC 20 Year Association office] so that our expected number can be confirmed to the restaurant.

Join the fun - take the ferry from the Mainland or Gulf Islands or if you're already on Vancouver Island, drive to Departure Bay, Nanaimo where you'll meet up with friends you may not have seen for some time while you enjoy lunch at Beefeater's Chop House & Grill!!  I'll be there and hope you will too.  - Peggy
