DEAR FELLOW MEMBERS,
Many thanks this month to Smythe LLP, whose team is busy wrapping up our audited financial statements in time for the Club’s Annual General Meeting. The AGM will be held on Monday, December 10 at 10 a.m. in the Metropolitan Ballroom and will be followed by light refreshments. I hope to see you in attendance.
Your Club is healthy and on track, and there are lots of exciting changes and improvements to the member experience to look forward to in 2019. More details will be shared at the AGM, so all the more reason to join us. Your Board is committed to continual improvement in everything we do and I look forward to updating you next month.
Members in the know always hold the first weekend of November for our much anticipated fall gala. It’s an all-inclusive event with terrific live entertainment, dancing, and the now-famous foot massage stations for our well-heeled members and guests. This year, 007 Bond: Diamonds are Forever, is on Saturday, November 3, and although the party goes late, the buzz will continue for many weeks. Our annual gala is our signature event and for new members just joining us, it sells out year after year so we hope you have your tickets! Only a few remain, so now is your last chance.Dress to impress, or like many guests, impersonate your favourite 007 villain or Bond character.
Travelling this fall? Before you go, ensure you review our substantial list of affiliate clubs that can be found on our website. Your TCC membership gives you access to exclusive city, beach, golf, and country clubs all over the world; I can tell you, from experience, that this is an exceptional perk when you’re travelling for business or pleasure.
Holiday lunch and dinner buffets will take place throughout December. An ideal opportunity to treat clients, colleagues, co-workers, friends, or family, our buffets really do have something for everyone.
Dickens Brunch is on Sunday, December 9 this year. This event has become a family tradition for many and always sells out well in advance, so please book ahead to avoid disappointment. I’m told Santa himself will be in attendance and all families will leave with a photo with the man himself.
Each year, TCC staff and members support the students and families of Admiral Seymour Elementary School. The school is located just a few kilometres from the Club’s front doors in the Strathcona neighbourhood. With your support, Club staff will prepare and serve a special holiday luncheon for students and families, and distribute gifts to every student. This has become a very special event for these kids. Many thanks to the members who have made this event possible over the past seven years. If you would like to receive a tax receipt for your donation, please donate online at vancouverfoundation.ca/tcc or contact Member Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Otherwise, proceeds from your $20 ticket to the November 15 Holiday Scotch Social – a tremendous opportunity to sample dozens of high caliber whiskies and scotches – will go directly to this important cause. Register now with Member Services as this is another event that always sells out!
Finally, as we approach holiday season, I’d like to thank all of our members for keeping our Club so vibrant. As always, I look forward to seeing you around the Club.
