Tacky tourists wanted

Evergreen Club hosts the Tacky Tourist birthday party Wednesday.

HOW TACKY CAN you dress for the Evergreen Club's Tacky Tourist birthday party?

The word is out — the Tacky Tourist birthday party is fast approaching.

The fun will be had this Wednesday from noon to 2 in the Florence Filberg Centre’s upper conference all.

Put on a tacky tourist outfit and join us! What was a tacky tourist wearing 25 years ago? Think ‘retro’ for your loud Hawaiian shirts, black knee socks and sandals. Throw on a straw hat, large sunglasses and accessorize with old souvenirs.

“This is an extra special party,” says organizer Marlene Lally. “We will also celebrate the Evergreen Club making the Florence Filberg Centre their home 25 years ago.”

The Evergreen Club moved into the new building July 10, 1988.

How many of you were here then for that occasion? Lally would love to hear from anyone who was an Evergreen member at that time.

“We hope to have special guests who have made this journey with us,” Lally says. “Imagine the stories from all those years!”

There will be prizes for the favourite costumes and a draw for a grand prize of two tickets for the bus trip to the Chemainus Theatre performance of It’s a Wonderful Life. You must be present to win.

There will be wonderful melodies to entertain you, chosen to fit the travel theme. It may even put you in the mood for booking a trip somewhere.

The Evergreen caterers will create another delicious lunch for you to enjoy. Grab a friend or two and have a lovely afternoon out.

Contact the Filberg Centre office for tickets or more details 250-338-1000.
