A small but mighty group of BOMPAVI members met on Friday, October 18th and a pot luck lunch was enjoyed by all! Election of Officers took place for the ensuing year and all positions were filled, with the exception of Vice-President, hence the executive will continue to look for a volunteer. .

Tentative date for our next get-together is January 18, 2020 representing our Christmas lunch and we look forward to a much larger gathering of friends and acquaintances with whom to celebrate!

Lower Mainland BOMPA Remembers Roy at Afternoon Delight

October 24, 2019

Thirty-three BOMPA members, spouses and friends attended the Roy Orbison tribute at Elements Casino in Cloverdale on October 21st - it was unanimously agreed that it was far more entertaining than the just ended election campaign. Lunch was served at 11:00 AM and the band began to play at noon. Renditions of Orbison songs were much enjoyed and chair dancing was engaged by many - one of the back-up band members impersonated Dolly Parton for a couple of her more famous hits and both looked and sounded like the Dolly we all enjoy so much – high boots and big, big….hair. All agreed it was a good thing to be doing on a rainy afternoon….a delightful thing to do! A wine draw netted June Astley and Dorothy Cummer (celebrating a recent birthday) a white prize – strangely, a third bottle went unclaimed !!

Letter to the Editor “BMO Commercial Fastball Team” by Jim Smith, Bridgewater, NS

October 20, 2019

The recent letter about the 1977 BMO Toronto Branch Baseball Team has got members reminiscing about their old BMO sport teams. Jim Smith recently sent us a letter which we are pleased to share with you about his team.


“I was reviewing some memorabilia and came across BMO crests from the past which brought back some fond memories. Our Bank of Montreal fastball team in 1965 not only won the city of Montreal’s Bankers League championship but also went on to win the Greater Montreal Commercial League championship, a major accomplishment at the time. We had to win our way out of the bankers league to qualify for the greater Montreal Commercial League championship series. The Commercial League championship series consisted of winning teams from various commercial leagues throughout the city. (*)

I recall that team jackets and a special dinner in the President’s boardroom were provided to acknowledge the accomplishment.

From memory, my team members included Wylie Forster, Bob Adams, George Neil, Paul Roy (coach) and myself Jim Smith.

Would anyone have pictures and or write-ups relative to this team?

Thank you.”

J.A. “Jim” Smith, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

(*”Our team represented the Bank of Montreal, a specific commercial area didn’t exist at the time.  The team roster consisted of employees from branches on the Island of Montreal as well as staff from Head Office. We captured the “Bankers League” title (Bankers League crest) and then went on to win the city of Montreal's Commercial league championship (Commercial League crest). The Commercial league championship consisted of winning teams from various leagues, such as Bankers, Insurance, Trust, and the Construction industry, etc.  I believe the reference to commercial was a city designation as the championship would include winning teams from various commercial industries.”)
