BOMPA VANCOUVER ISLAND FALL REUNION - SEPTEMBER 10, 2019

Sep 17, 2019

This past Tuesday, 21 pensioners and partners met at the Pacific Northwest Raptors attraction in Duncan, BC and were treated to a tour of the grounds, followed by an interesting and educational flying show of many of the birds. ‘Manwe’ the bald eagle stole the show as he flew over the crowd and Twain, the tiny American kestrel, was a hit with everyone. The Raptors employee team is comprised of a group of biologists and falconers on Vancouver Island, who created The Raptors to bring people closer to birds of prey. Their goal is to “educate, illuminate and encourage a sense of personal responsibility for the future of these essential creatures we share the planet with”.

After the show we shared a picnic lunch under sunny skies, had a 50-50 draw and a few door prizes and a great time was had by all! We will all be looking forward to our next get together for Christmas!

"Wanted Poster" (calling all BMO Cyber Pensioner members)

August 26, 2019

The Pinkerton & Co., United States, Detective Agency issued a 'Wanted Poster' January 10th, 1891 for James N. Henry an absconding thief. An award of $1,000 was offered by Bank of Montreal, of Montreal, Canada for the arrest and delivery of Mr. Henry for obtaining money on forged bills. For further details, please CLICK HERE.

This poster was provided to us by BMO Corporate Archives who, although cannot offer a monetary award, are always on the look out for material and artifacts from members who would like them to be captured in their archival collection. Corporate Archives are trying to expand their reach throughout the pensioner community as the experience of working with the bank for 30 or more years is becoming scarce.For contact details, please CLICK HERE.

Discover the Fraser Cruise - July 24th, 2019

July 26, 2019

On a perfect day a paddlewheeler cruise on the Fraser River (the mightiest river in BC) would be wonderful and that is what twenty-eight pensioners enjoyed last Wednesday.  Our knowledgeable sea guide told us about the history of the passing shore sights. The dolphins (no, not those kind, the ones you tie logs up to), the tug boats, the remains of the ‘Pen’ where a pub and restaurant now provide a different and more pleasant atmosphere (plus good food) and the bridges (the Skytrain bridge, the Pattullo and the Port Mann). Not to miss the very user friendly development by the City of New Westminster along the docks from the Quay to the Skytrain bridge...really a brilliant jewel for the City.  The lunch was excellent and a beverage service was provided as well.  It went all too fast…. Next year there is talk of another venture to a different destination.

Lower Mainland BOMPA Golf Tournament - June 6, 2019

July 10, 2019

As promised by Golf President Allan Miller, the day was splendid weatherwise and in every other way. Some 34 golfers enjoyed the scenery at Country Meadows Golf Course in Richmond and a few made very good shots to win acclaim and fleeting fame.  This year’s winning team was made up of Dawn and Paul Corcoran together with Diane and Richard White  (5 under par) – awardees of the Peter Vale Memorial trophy.  That is despite a score card turned in by the four reception ladies touting a 6 under par achievement – the latter was declared Fake News by Score guru Bill Dodds. Long Drives were taken by Cathy Hansford and Stu Clark. KP’s by Vicki Sorrenson and Frank Costanzo. Several more joined the group for dinner and socialization. Draws and auctions of items generously donated by BMO associates filled out the day. Everyone went home before dark – except, those coming from Whitehorse, Kamloops, Hope and Qualicum, B.C.

Pictures of the happy golfers are online and apologies from the photographer for some camera difficulties that saw a few heads chopped off and some sliced in half. But you get the gist that a great day was had by all.
