CBA Picnic June 28 2009

Hello, everyone! Wow! Thanks to everyone that came to our CBA picnic at Fort George Park on Sunday June 28th! It was a great turnout! Although the weather seemed to look gloomy and yes, there was a slight moment when the rain came down, many of you still came out to enjoy the BBQ and picnic and chat with old friends. I was very glad to see a lot of the people I haven’t seen in a long time and a lot of new faces. It’s always great to be able to “connect” with someone in person after conversing with them via email. So, I had a lot of that happen today and that’s great! I’m very pleased to see a few of the elderly CBA members attend as that’s my main focus for the picnic, to hopefully bring more people out and enjoy some time with friends and family. Although the turn out was more than I had expected, we still had enough food for everyone and thankfully, we didn’t have too much left over. Thanks to everyone who replied to let us know you were coming. That helps us a lot in determining the amount of food to allocate and purchase for the picnic. We had the usual: hamburger and hotdogs with fixin’s, deep fried chicken wings (thanks to Rose Lui and Karry Chow for taking the time to deep fry them for us! They’re great!), corn on the cob, cookies, chips, cheezies, pop and drinks, watermelons… oh, let’s just say, there’s a lot of food and yet, there’s not much left over in the end!

A BIG THANKS to Eva Ho and Henry Ho for bringing their BBQ stove, portable propane stove, plus all the necessary tools for a successful BBQ, Sarah Goodrick for supplying the plates, cups, utensils, paper towels, table cloths, and everything related! She certainly brought a lot of stuff and came prepared! Wow! A BIG THANKS to Cynthia Hong and family for getting all the chips, cookies, pop, watermelon, corn for us! She did a HUGE job in helping out! The success of this BBQ is due to your big help! Thanks! BIG THANKS to Trevor Ip and family for bringing along the BBQ and helping out with the cooking. Actually, special thanks to Tracy Peng, Sarah Goodrick, Eva Ho and others for helping with the cooking!

Some of the pictures taken of the picnic are now uploaded. Here’s a slideshow of the pics.

Sorry for the quick movements. I normally use a regular camcorder that has great image stabilization. Will keep that in mind next time 😉

The CBA picnic was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came to support us! We had lots of fun and it was a very nice warm and sunny day. Thankfully, the mosquitoes did not really come out until it was time to go. Check out the slideshows of the pictures taken of the picnic below. As you can see, we had a lot of fun with the parent participation races like tug of war, three-legged race, jump rope, egg throw plus the kids got to create their own art. Thanks to Yantl Wagar, Karmen and Lee Lin Fu for organizing the fun and games and arts! Thanks also to the wonderful people who helped out at the picnic including Eva Ho, Lee Lin Fu, Gail and many others I may have missed. Thanks again for your support!
