Sat 1 Dec 2018:  Unit Christmas Dinner:   Your Unit Executive is once again honoured to host Christmas dinner.  This year we will be at the Cairn Croft Hotel on Lundy's Lane in Niagara Falls. Those that attended last year will remember the night as a great way to share a few laughs with your friends from work while allowing your “significant other” to put faces to some of the names you mention at the end of the day.

Seating for this event is extremely limited so we are asking that you inform us of your intention to come no later than Friday 16 Nov. The cost will be $60.00 for you and your better half and this cost must be paid by this date. Seating will be reserved for the first 20 couples that pay. Please contact Ian Monteith (905-351-4277) or Gary Savoie (519-319-1410) to arrange payment and reserve your seats at the dinner.

The entrees for this year will be roast chicken, New York striploin steak and fresh salmon. Appetizers and dessert will also be served.  If you happen to be vegan, vegetarian, or have any other dietary needs please inform your unit executive as soon as possible, there will be a menu option for you as well.  Here is how you get to the Cairn Croft 

For those couples that are coming from out of town and would like to stay overnight in Niagara Falls, we have arranged rooms at special pricing. Click here to book your room online.  You may also call the hotel directly at 1-800-263-2551

Christmas is all about giving and generosity, and we are asking that you remember those less fortunate during the holiday season. We will be collecting toys for delivery to Sick Kids Hospital at the dinner. Please find it in your heart to donate a toy for a child (up to about 13 years old).  For those who are not coming to dinner but still wishing to donate a toy or if you wish to make a cash donation please contact Gary Savoie at 519-319-1410.  


Thurs 20 Dec 2018:  Brewins Christmas Party:  This is the one that everyone looks forward to every year! The party this year will be held at Brewins Pub in Niagara Falls.  The party starts when you get there and ends when they kick us out!!! Here’s how to get to the Brewins.
