Annual PCSO Christmas Party 15 December 2022

Reanne Booker portrait

It’s party time again!  It has been another successful and productive year for PCS Ottawa thanks to the fantastic support from our members and our excellent Board of Directors.  It’s time to celebrate!

The December 15 PCSO Members’ meeting will be an in-person Christmas Party starting at 6:30 pm at St Stephen’s Anglican Church [MAP] and will feature the exciting Original Trillium Dixieland Jazz Band who donate their time to entertain us! Hal Floysvik will be enthusiastically sounding out the bass line on his tuba.

With the increased concern about COVID and the common flu infections overloading the hospitals, wearing a mask is encouraged, though not mandatory, and if you need one, we will have plenty of masks and hand sanitizer on hand.  We have lots of tables and chairs and a large hall.  You can space yourself as far from others as you choose.

Food and beverages are provided free of charge but please help us plan how much we need.  Please email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you plan to come, and let us know how many you will be.

You are welcome to bring your partner, a friend, your chauffeur, another family member.  All are welcome.  We just need to know the numbers.

We hope you will come and celebrate the past year with us
