What a great turnout for our 2016 Meet and Greet!! It was good to talk with a lot of our members (“old” and new), and for them to be able to connect and ask questions with the group leaders about our many groups and some of our courses.
As usual, Helen and our kitchen volunteers served up great coffee, tea and a choice of cakes. Yum, Yum. Thanks again to Velma and Pat for great organizing and to all the volunteers who helped.
Hopefully we can have a Meet and Greet 2017!!!!

Our annual Strawberries and Waffles event was held on Tuesday, July 5th under wonderful sunny skies. Over 100 members enjoyed tasty waffles, fruit and whipping cream from 10:30 – 1:00 pm. The studio and lounge were filled to the rafters and several members and guests were using our wonderful courtyard and garden outside.
Thanks Helen and all the great volunteers who helped to make “Waffle Tuesday” such a success. See you next year!!!
On June 7th the inaugural Cordova Bay Community Leadership Awards were handed out at a special ceremony at the Beach House Restaurant. Our own Rich McMorran was named Volunteer of the Year; Sheila Wells the Employee of the Year; Brian Royer-Collard the Coach/Mentor of the Year; and our wonderful CB55+ Association picked up the Community Group Award. Rich accepted his award and did so on behalf of all the people who have helped build CB55+ over the years, and in particular the “Fab 5”, who started the whole thing!
The leadership awards are the result of a partnership between the Saanich News, Cordova Bay Association for Community Affairs, Tru Value Foods, the Beach House Restaurant and other area businesses.
The evening was wonderful and was enjoyed by all who attended.
