The Bonsor 55+ Snooker Group has a donation fund (collected by their members)  and the executive purchase granola bars (nut free) and juice boxes and deliver them to schools in the area.  They have been doing this for several years, with great success.  Maywood School says that these donations are very helpful and much appreciated.

Well done, Snooker Members!

On November 25, 2016, following our Bonsor Cup Tournament, we had our annual Christmas lunch.  Once again, a record number of 171 members attended.  Also, we were honored to have Eric Bientjes (Manager of Burnaby Parks & Recreation), Mary Horton (President of Bonsor 55+ Society), Tina Cooper (Bonsor Senior Supervisor) and Michelle St Jean (Bonsor 55+ Liaison) join us for the event.

Before the lunch began, our president, Peter McConville, presented the medals to all the winners with everyone cheering on. Lots of pictures were taken of individuals and teams posing with the Bonsor Cup.

We also had lots of door prizes, including bouquets of beautiful flowers (donated by one of our members), chocolates, cookies, mugs with our club’s logo and other badminton accessories. Our grand prize was a badminton racquet.

Every year we raise money for the Maywood School mitten fund as part of the Christmas lunch event. Our contribution to the fund this year tops $589.

The party was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed the delicious food and the good company of each other. Finally, I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to all the volunteers who helped make this event so successful.

The Karaoke Program has been running for 12 years now. We have 4 parties a year.  On Sunday, September 25 the Mid-Autumn Festival Party was held.  Members and friends as well as people from the other groups at Bonsor 55+ were invited to join in and about 40 people attended.  They enjoyed the food, the moon cake dessert and the singing very much; they even had left over food to take home.  Everyone enjoyed the party to the fullest. The question “When is the next party?” was even asked!

Bonsor 55+ members were rocking it up Friday October 14, 2016 at the Return to the 60's Dinner Dance.  The evening featured a lasagna dinner with all trimmings and The Day Trippers Beatles Tribute Band. The dance floor was full from the opening song to the last. A great time was had by all.

The Bonsor Badminton Group was recognized for providing many volunteers for the Americas Masters Games (AMG) 2016 held at the Vancouver Convention Center from August 27 to September 3.  The group received a lovely thank-you letter and a plaque which are in the display case in the lounge.

We asked one of our Bonsor Members and BC 55+ Games Participants about her recent experience at the 2017 BC 55+ Games, hosted by Coquitlam.

“For me, it was the excitement and anticipation leading up to the games, the social practice sessions and the encouragement and support from participants and even opponents during the Games.  It was really an all round positive and rewarding experience.”

We think Anita summed it up perfectly!  Congratulation to all participants!  We are proud of you!
