RCMP Veterans Association Vancouver Div. Luncheon

Our next luncheon is Friday, April 5, 2024 at 11:30 AM at the Cloverdale Legion, 17567 57 Ave., Surrey, B.C.  The guest speaker will be Retired D/Comm. Peter German, KC PHD.  Lunch will be ordered from the Legion menu and you will be responsible for your own costs.

The ONLY thing you are responsible for prior to this luncheon is to send an email to Dorothy Martinson at or phone (604) 261-4630.

This stands to be a great time with the change of venue etc., and we are looking forward to seeing as many of you that can attend.  If you have never attended a luncheon this is the one you might want to come with a friend and reacquaint yourself with your friends.
