For many, the arrival of Labour Day marks the beginning of the unofficial “New Year,” as kids return to school, the throngs of downtown tourists diminish, and those lazy summer days start to make way for the brisk productivity of fall. But if you are not quite ready to let go, do not despair – the patios at the Terminal City Club will stay open for as long as the weather cooperates.
Looking back on what has been a pretty spectacular summer, I hope you were able to take advantage of your membership and enjoy some outdoor dining or a special event with your fellow Club members. Summer events like the weekly BBQs at The Grill, Dog Days of Summer, and Bubbles & Bites had a celebratory air and were very well attended. Several members – myself included – took the opportunity to experience this year’s Honda Celebration of Light from the TCC table. What a view! And thanks to our partners at Vancouver Whitecaps FC and “coaches” David Edgar and Carl Valentine for leading the Kids Soccer Drills, a truly amazing experience for our members and their families.
As we begin to wrap up the Club’s fiscal year, I am happy to report that overall business has remained steady, and our year-to-date financials are solid and on track. Membership numbers have continued to increase this year, but we still have room to grow before we meet our highest goals. A full report on financial and membership numbers will be presented at our Annual General Meeting in December. In the meantime, my thanks to all of you who have introduced friends and colleagues to membership at the Club this year. An engaged membership base is what keeps our Club vibrant and sustainable, and your support makes a difference and is greatly appreciated. Now is “last call” on rewards for any last-minute member referrals. For each referred Resident or Corporate member who joins by mid-September, both you and your referral will receive a $250 Club credit! Contact your Membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604 488 8647 for full details.
As you are no doubt aware by now, 2017 marks our Club’s 125th Anniversary. The updated Club flags flying over our Hastings Street entrance and over the Lions Pub are physical commemorations to note. One of the most salient commemorations of this milestone is the new Member Wall that has been installed in our lobby, and which is nearly full already. Thanks to all those of you who have chosen this special opportunity to leave your legacy and support your Club at the same time; your contributions have gone toward enhancing our Fitness Centre patio and lobby area. A limited number of plaques remain available for interested members.
A spectacular way to celebrate our 125th is by joining the party of the year with your friends and family: this year’s James Bond party is on Saturday, November 4. If you haven’t attended this event in the past, take the advice of those who have, and don’t miss it! Tickets will go on sale in September but you can book your groups now. Since this event always sells out, I recommend that you make your plans today and enjoy the anticipation.
In the shorter term, The Canadian Club of Vancouver is hosting two very timely luncheons at our Club on September 5 featuring the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and on September 20 featuring Mr. Don Lindsay, President of Teck Resources, and fellow TCC member. For details, please refer to page 12.
The annual TCC Golf Tournament, benefiting the Royal Colombian Hospital Foundation, will be on September 25, at Point Grey Golf & Country Club. The tournament itself is sold out so if you aren’t in yet, better start asking around to see if there is a foursome with a spot to spare. This tournament has been growing in popularity and promises to be an excellent wrap-up to summer.
Finally, for those of you interested in serving on the Board of Directors, the time for the first Nominating Committee meeting is approaching. If you are interested, please approach Peter Jackman email@example.com to express your interest.
