THOUGHT OF THE DAY:
"I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure." - Mae West
MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE:
We have a venue! First we would like to thank the Debbie Reid and the PEI committee for their hard work to find a hotel quickly. They are working tirelessly to organize a great reunion at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel on 75 Kent Street. The dates are Monday the 27th, Tuesday the 28th, and Wednesday the 29th of May, 2024
You can register for the 16th Reunion of the RCAF Airwomen here.
Now that we have a place to go we are looking for a new logo design for reunion 16. If you have any ideas please contact us here.
For the ladies attending the reunion for the first time we would like to pass on the following information:
For those attending the entire event, the $250 includes: two nights dinner with entertainment and one brunch on the last day. These events are for the members and their aides, or guests (non-members) who may have served with them.
Those not registered for R16 can attend the excursion on Tuesday, and the brunch on Wednesday, cost to be determined.
The church service on the last day is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
Please contact us if you have any questions, more information will be forthcoming as plans come together.
You don't have to be a member of the RCAF Airwomen's Reunion to attend a luncheon in your local area. If you are interested in meeting up with women you may have served with or whom served at the same time as you, get in touch with the facilitators to see what it's all about.
Some luncheons are monthly, year round. Some have their own annual schedules.
Our next luncheon is Wednesday the 8th of March at the Northgate Seniors Center in Edmonton at 1:00 pm. We hope as many as possible can attend and of course husbands or significant others are always welcome. Any questions, please call me, Elke Carr, at 1-780-912-9242 or e-mail me at email@example.com.
