Our recent 2016 Awards Dinner was a great success.
Gary and Linda Pullyblank organised another superb evening for us at the Seasons in the Park restaurant in Vancouver. It was a delightful social gathering, with everyone looking their finest.
Our Regional Director, Barry Patchett, was gracious enough to come all the way from Victoria to present awards personally, to our deserving Members.
Matthew Peck was very deservedly awarded “Member of the Year” for his outstanding contributions and involvement this year. In particular, Matt created wonderful graphics and an impressive interactive online Registration Page for promoting the Show & Shine. Well done!
Vice President Tony Millikin received an award for “Event Excellence” in recognition of his outstanding organisation of the Shipbuilder’s Square Show & Shine. His vision and organisation of Sponsor and Technical presentations took his event to unprecedented heights. Thank you, Tony!
Matthew Peck also received the “MaTV” Media Award, for his spectacular video of the Shipbuilder’s Square event. Matt, you made us all look great!

Our Newsletter Photographer and Ace Reporter for the evening, Bruce Woloshyn, was surprised with an award, himself. Barry Patchett was very proud to present Bruce with the First Place, MBCA National award, for the “Best Print Newsletter”. This National award is prestigious not only for Bruce and BC, but for our entire Region. Well done, Bruce!
Cathy Browne was the lucky winner of a nice door prize donated by Member Sean Robertson.
Saras Mudaliar won a door prize donated by Nestor Balce of the Vancouver MB Retail Group.
I would like to thank the winners for their dedication that earned them these deserved awards. At the same time, I would like to give my appreciation to all our Members who selflessly, contributed their time and effort and goodwill, to make 2015 a fantastic year for the BC Section.
Thanks also, to Barry Patchett for joining us on our special evening. My gratitude to Gary and Linda for organising our memorable evening.
