Celebration of Tennis – Photos
Wednesday, June 15, 2022
Despite the rainy weather, Celebration of Tennis events went according to plan. Although it was unfortunate to cancel the drills and the exhibition match because of wet courts, we had a turnout of 60-70 members who enjoyed mingling and meeting other members. Drinks were served as well as bowls of chili from West Vancouver’s Boat Shed restaurant.
We had a successful raffle generating over $700 with all funds going to a local charity Athletics4kids. The night was capped off by celebrating the Club’s 97th birthday with a fabulous cake made by none other than our social director Linda Green. After the cake, we rocked the night away with live music performed by the Bluesy guitarist Mark Hildebrand.
One can’t have an event of this caliber without the efforts of an amazing volunteer team. We would like to acknowledge and thank Lesley Harrison, Andrea Eby, Arda Yetisen, Dennis Harrison, David Bowra, Geoff Adair, Terry Godinho, Karin Menke, Heather Mersey, Mary Lou Riordon, Yuko Toku-Godoy, Donna Allaby, Janice McClintock, Marina Alexander, Liz Lynch, Lynn Hughes, Suzanne Kauffman (official photographer), Phil and Nancy Beaty. If we have missed someone, please know your efforts were much appreciated!
We would further like to thank all the businesses and individuals who donated to our Raffle including Fresh Street Market, Complement Healthcare, Swiss Sports Haus, Oceanside Medical Esthetics, Odlum Brown VanOpen, Spirit of Tennis and the Harrison House.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Celebration of Tennis!
Linda and Bob, Social Directors
