Men's Pub Lunch                                           



 The Men's Pub Lunch has met the Tuesday after the General Meeting at the Nanoose Community Centre at 11:30am to carpool to a different pub each month.  It has lapsed over the past few months, due to the lack of an organizer or two.  All you need to do to get this social lunch going again is to choose a pub and let the communications chair know. That's it and of course, have a great time!
