75th Anniversary of the CCB

To All CCB BC-Yukon Division Members,

Hello, this year we are celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the CCB Nationally and next year we will be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the CCB BC-Yukon Division – a perfect excuse to party for two years! One reason Chilliwack was chosen for this year’s conference is because it is the Division’s oldest Chapter, founded in 1948. And Chilliwack Chapter will be hosting the “Making Connections” Meet ‘n Greet on the evening of April 29th; and are planning to have many of their members and other Chilliwackiands at the festivities.

Attached are the CCB BC-Yukon Division Conference Information details and Attendee form – if you have any trouble accessing the documents, they are pasted at the end of this email. Letting you know, once we know who is attending, there will be meal choices to make for the “Dinner Out” and “Celebrating the CCB” Banquet.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are working industriously to make sure you/we all have an unforgettable experience. Thanks, Ann
