Photos from Meet & Greet with John Horgan Premier of British Columbia
The Meet ‘n Greet with Minister Robinson and Premier Horgan was a great success! More than sixty people of all age ranges attended and had a great time visiting, renewing old acquaintances and making new friends. And getting a chance to talk with the Premier and a Cabinet Minister.
The evening started at 6:30 and for most went until well after 8. Everyone was greeted at the door and given their name tag by Ed Lalonde. Jessie Thomas hosted Minister Robinson introducing her to everyone in the Plaza’s Tumbleweeds Lounge,
Premier Horgan finally arrived well after 7 and immediately drew a crowd of listeners around him 3 deep Everyone who wanted a picture of themselves with the Premier had one taken and got to ask him questions. When I left well after most had gone, John still had a crowd of TRU students gathered round.
Big thanks to Michael Crawford for putting the whole thing together, Ed and Jessie for their help and Rick and Murray for distributing donation envelopes and collecting them and especially to the donors who gave generously.
And huge thanks to the staff at Tumbleweeds for keeping the drinks and delicious appy trays coming; they provided excellent service and the lounge was attractive and the right size for the whole get together. I would recommend it for any gathering of about 50 or so people.
