Feb. 7, 2019 News Update. 

Hi Everyone;

Although I will be sending out a full newsletter after our Feb. 19th luncheon, there are a couple of items that are time sensitive.

If you are interested in reserving a spot at the Indispensable Workshop (see attachment for details) you can reserve a ticket, even if you are unable to attend the upcoming LRTA luncheon.  We have limited seating (60), and if there are any seats still available after April 6th, we will be opening up the invitation to members of the Abbotsford RTA and Surrey RTA.

I have attached four pdfs that may be of interest to you.  Included in this update are:

1) Mamma Mia performances by Brookswood Senior Secondary students (Feb 6-9/13-16) -- matinees available on certain days

2) Reserve your tickets for the Indispensable Binder workshop (April 30th) -- seating limited to 60 -- email me at lrta.35@gmail.com

3) Tracy Lee McCall retirement poster

4) Chronic Conditions Self-Managment program (March 6 to April 10)

5) Tom McLean Trip Merchant website information

6) Link to Karen Bowcott's obituary (in Langley Advance)
