SERGEANT at ARMS 

Many thanks to Heather and the organizers of the Christmas party.

We held our annual gift giving meeting. Many very touching and meaningful stories were heard.

SPEAKER

Michael Ghirra talked to us about the Victor Ghirra Toy Drive.

Victor passed away at 37 years some time ago. It was discovered he secretly gave about $1200 of toys annually to Children's Hospital for many years.

The Ghirra family picked this up and expanded to now include Richmond Christmas Fund, Canuck Place and others in Vancouver and Surrey.

There is a toy round up at Riverside Banquet Hall 3:00 December 16, 2017.
