Monthly trips are organized for the men to local areas of interest. Some cost may be involved to cover admission or make a donation to the organization. The trips usually take place in the morning during the last Wednesday or Thursday followed by lunch at a local restaurant or pub. Normally we carpool from CB55+ leaving between 9:00 and 10:00 am and return between 2:000 and 3:00 pm.

January 18, 2018: Robert Bateman Gallery — One Tree Exhibit
With the help of Geoff Vickers, who has one of his marquetry pieces on display, we have arranged to visit the “One Tree” exhibition at the Robert Bateman Gallery on Thursday, January 18th, 2018. We will visit the Gallery between 10:30 and noon. I plan on booking lunch at the Restaurant in the Parliament Buildings if possible. If this does not work I will book us into the James Bay Inn Pub.
The tour will consist of an orientation of the “One Tree” exhibition by one of the staff and an introductory video. Not only will we be able to view the stunning wildlife paintings of Robert Bateman but we’ll be able to see the “One Tree” exhibit. Fifty artists from across Canada have created art work from a single, 100 old walnut tree. If you wish to know more about this project and the Robert Bateman Gallery please visit the website

It will cost approximately $8.00 per person for the entrance fee.
If you are interested, please sign in the sign-up sheet in the Lounge. We will be limited to 20 people.
