Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club First Event for 2024

The Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club opened the year 2024 with a large celebration on Saturday, February 17, 2024.  We combined our traditional New Year celebration party with Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year.  With some 40 or so members and guests in attendance, the festivities started with the Lion Dance with Vince and Charlie as the head and tail and with drum accompaniment by Lily.  The Lion danced about the club house to scare away bad spirits and bring good fortune. 


We then settled down for a delicious and plentiful lunch of delightful munchies.

After lunch we were entertained by our own ukelele group performing several love songs such as Love me tender and Hello Mary Lou.

We then settled down for a few games of bingo for prizes donated by club members.  A game tradition at the club to keep our minds, eyes and reflexes sharp to win some wonderful prizes.

Special thanks to organizers, the volunteer helpers, the lion dancers, the ukelele group and prize donors.

A great start to the year.
