Search the web for the Gallery, Z'otz, the members at, and and on The Duchess is planning one breakfast with a Latino flavour - hope it works!

Getting Out

We made it to a couple of events in the past while: were fortunate to get a spot at the Union Gas table for a Wallaceburg Lacrosse fundraising dinner and auction. Enjoyed some Ukrainian appetizers and found out that the area generates more than a few university players and some professionals too. A set of 4 Leaf tickets went for over $800, and some football stuff courtesy of Shaun Suisham from his Redskin days. Also Rick attended a small reception for Fergie Jenkins at Rotary Park and the following day we went for lunch at The Armories and applauded Fergie as he unveiled his postage stamp. Rick had been carrying around a 1972 score card from Expos-Cubs and finally got it autographed.
