These luncheons are independant of this organization. You do not 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 lunch meeting will be on September 13th at Tony Roma's in the Londonderry Mall, 6604 137 Ave NW 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.

As the members of the committee update the nominal roll, we are discovering that some of our members have been with the angels for several years. We include them in our monthly newsletters as we find them. If it has been more than five years their names go directly in the Last Post list on the website, but do not appear in the newsletter.
If you have a notification of a member who has died and you do not see their name in the Last Post on our website, please let us know here. Thank you.
A “Very Happy Birthday!” to our September birthday ladies.
