Monthly program


Location: River Park Church,
3818 - 14A Street SW (map)
Next Meeting: Monday, Dec. 14,

7-9 p.m.
Speaker: Panel of experts
Topic: Where Have My Relatives Gone?


A panel of experts from within our own ranks will tell us about the one relative that just refused to be found, how this could possibly have happened and the tactics and tricks they used to find them.  As always, questions from the audience will be welcomed.


We are also asking members (and any visitors who would like to participate) to bring a tray of goodies for us all to share as this will be our last meeting before Christmas.  


And also in that spirit, we are proud to be supporting the Veterans' Food Bank again this year.  I have heard that while they are always happy to have food donations, they could really use monetary donations this year so bring your cheque books.
