There were 49 members and 13 honored guests attending our 110th anniversary celebration. Every year we have a strawberry tea with cake and ice cream to commemorate this momentous occasion. Our club was the first one in Victoria back in 1909 and in the early days, we helped Burnside, Canadian Pacific, and Vic West to start their clubs. Over the years, 9 clubs altogether have grown in Victoria providing a vital and enthusiastic bowling community.
Today, we included in our celebrations our newest group – our croquet members – who are also helping to start a new croquet group at Vic West. Before the summer is out, we hope to have a thriving interclub croquet community that also includes the Canadian Pacific club. It seems history is repeating itself in a positive way. Who knows what the next 110 years will bring?
