Meeting August 30, 2011. Photos Jack Petrie and John Edgell

Tuesday's get-together was not a meeting but a get-together, home tour and bag lunch. As Jack described it: What an interesting tour through this little bit of Oak Bay heaven, complete with tales of sex, murder, Royal escapades, Titanic survivors, sex, and all under a warm sun, capped off with a brownbag lunch at the back of Glen Lyon School...former home of Frances Rattenbury. Did I mention the sex part? (and we think it's spicy nowadays!)
Nary a one of us will look at this part of our community without thinking of its secrets. John Adams, our tour raconteur, did a splendid job of bringing the past to life.

 


INFORMATION ON THE JALTEMBO BAY ROTARY CONFERENCE JANUARY 18-21, 2012.

Oak Bay Rotary goes walkabout from York Place to Glen Lyon-Norfolk School and back.


















President Joan had the following to say:

Hope everyone enjoyed themselves. The sun came out; we learned a lot about one small area of Oak Bay, and had some exercise.

Thank you Brian for collecting the money; if Brian did not catch up with you he will be looking for you on Tuesday!!

Thank you to those who helped carry food from car to picnic spot and then back to car – the 'lost' bag was inside the other one!!

Thank you to Mary for offering to take all the garbage so it could go in her recycle, garbage collection on Wednesday. That saved me a lot of work

Thanks Leslie for rescuing me! I had to leave my house at very short notice this morning so arrived on Leslie's doorstep needing a counter-space to cut the watermelon; I think I left the compost bag on your counter Leslie!!

John E. and Jack took lots of pictures; will circulate to all when they arrive. We will have a great record of the event!

Jerry suggested we do a ghost bus tour in October. John A. will email me with details; I will pass them on to Heather and Dallas.

If I forgot anyone, apologies – a good time was had!

Enjoy the long weekend – look forward to seeing you all on September 6th.
