June 23, 2019

The B O M P A  Okanagan, Thompson & Kootenay Chapter Spring Meeting was held on Thursday,  June 20th, 2019 at the Kelowna Springs Golf Club. In President Marianne Evashuk's absence, Vice President Dave Murison capably chaired the meeting and amused us with a number of jokes. In seriousness, though, Dave asked that all members reach out to other BMO retires in the region and invite them to join us. Vince Lemke also entertained the group with a number of jokes. The 18 members in attendance enjoyed a delicious lunch.

Our guest speaker was Roy Morgan, the Crime Prevention Co-ordinator with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.  Roy spoke about many of the scams targeting seniors and gave us tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of these scams.

Thanks Linda Engels for sharing.

Letter to the Editor - from Dennis Carnduff re: Brian Tokaruk's retirement

June 18, 2018

In August 2018 we wrote a story, “Half a Century and Some - A Tribute to Brian Tokaruk’s BMO Retirement” which can be found in our Archives.  We are pleased to share the following letter we recently received from one of his former colleagues, Dennis Carnduff.  Click here to read the original story.

“Wow!  50 years that must be a record, congratulations Brian and best wishes for the future.
We were just looking at a picture of Brian at my retirement party in Tisdale in 1992 . I later sold their house when he was moved to Regina. (I was working part-time selling real estate for a few years after retirement).
McKee Moving and storage (Mike and Joe Taylor) of Tisdale also moved us three times. It was nice to see a name from the past who has good news."

Dennis Carnduff

If you have any comments regarding this Letter to the Editor or perhaps a story of your own, please contact the BMO Cyber Pensioners News team at We look forward to hearing from you.
