Kamloops 40th Birthday Party

Organized by Del Basaraba
Photos & Presentation  by Dave Dickinson

As this year was the 40th Anniversary of the Chapter the Executive decided that we should do something a little special.

Del Basarba offered the club to use his place for the party.

It was decided to have it on a Saturday night in June to replace the first annual Crusie Night.

Glenn Gallagher's 1938 Chevrolet was in the original Easter Parade and has been in the club for the full 40 years so it was picked to be on the anniversary pin.

Glenn made a generous offer towards the pins to get the project started.
Some of the members had their cars on display

Then the line up begins

Along with your steak Jerry Wallin would make you an old fashion milk shake.
