This year the VLBC Women’s Lunch Bunch met for Christmas lunch at the Four Mile Pub on the Old Island Highway, a venue whose history like the Victoria Lawn Bowling Club goes back over 100 years (see Club’s history here). In the horse and buggy days, the Pub was a roadhouse for dusty travelers, later it became a cabaret. In 1979 the present establishment opened. One can imagine that some of our early bowling club members dropped in for a pint or two.
Today, the fabulous display of seasonal decorations adds to its warm welcoming atmosphere making it a perfect place for a pre-Christmas gathering.
The Women’s Lunch Bunch meets the first Tuesday of every month from October through March at a different venue each month. In addition to being an opportunity to catch up with bowling friends we may not see over the winter, it’s a great opportunity to taste test various restaurants in town. Members interested in joining the group should contact Jo Ann Allan to be added to her email list (see contacts webmaster).
Club President MaryLynne Reimer took the opportunity to present Jo Ann with an amaryllis, a gift of appreciation for her many contributions to the Club over the years. As a long term member, Jo Ann has filled various positions—Executive Board, coach, player development and tournament chairs, BSI rep, lunch organizer, webmaster—to name only a few!!
Thank you Jo Ann for your major contributions to the running of the Club (see more on volunteer recognition here).
