Re your mention of the AC uniform display at the BC Air Museum
at Sidney. It's an excellent display and it brings back great memories of
earlier days; definitely a must-see. The uniforms were collected and donated
to the museum by
the Victoria "Dogwood" Chapter of the Canadian Maple Wings Association,
which is composed of former and current TCA/Air Canada flight attendants.
Thanks for keeping us so well informed and in touch with our former
workmates. Lois North
A reminder to all the Okanagan airmen. Our regular luncheon will be at 11:30
with lunch
at 12. at the Kelowna Yatch Club, on Water street. We want to discus having
a golf
game later this month, if there is interest. See you there. Glen House
