The 2016 National AGM is over. The last month leading up to the AGM saw everybody scrambling to try and make this one of the best AGMs ever.
The 2016 AGM was hosted by PMD through the volunteer efforts of many of the lower mainland squadrons. None more so than Fraser Squadron. Volunteers for the 2016 National AGM included Dave Mellis, Meredith Williamson, Barb & John Dymond, Byron and Donalda Buie, Kathleen & Paul Vanderwood, and Bob Everson. Wait! Those were just the people in the photo below taken Friday night. Missing from the photo are Peter Lefroy, Cleve Pryde, Vidas Vitkus, Gouri Chinappa, Bill & Linda Hawryluk. I recall seeing Jack Tang and several other Fraser members whose names I don't know at the AGM luncheon. If you spent time volunteering I really hope I haven't forgotten you.
This AGM saw Fraser members being recognized for their contributions to CPS. Highlights included the Chief Commanders Letter of Commendation as Training Officers of the year given to Kathleen and Paul Vanderwood and a plaque awared to Byron Buies as CPS officer of the year. Way to go!
In more or less chronological order some photos from the AGM.

This past July, Commander Dave Mellis and Administrative Officer Meredith Williamson, took a cruise through the San Juan islands and took the time to write about it in their personal blog.
Read about Dave and Merediths adventures from the waters off Nanaimo and south to the San Juan islands.
As a member of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons there is a long list of perks for YOU!
Okay, I have your attention and I have about ten seconds to keep your attention, here goes the elevator version of why you should renew your Fraser Squadron membership.
In many cases the amount of money you save on boat insurance will pay for your CPS membership, and as an additional perk, as a member of Fraser Squadron you will receive six copies of Pacific Yachting every year.
Well, that's six copies of Pacific Yachting for free. But, I see you are a discerning boater and you want more . . .
Well we have more for you.
