Our Annual Client Appreciation Party, Sunday ( September 13th ), in the Penthouse Suite of Victoria's Regent Waterfront Hotel was another resounding success!
We were blessed with sunshine and blue skies and enjoyed taking in the fabulous inner harbour views along with watching the ferries, kayakers and float planes come and go about their business.
There was a celebratory atmosphere throughout the evening with great live musical performances from our three Guest Artists: Alex Klassen, our Cello Soloist, Sue Decker's Folk Guitar and the dynamic duo of Sean Hollan's and Suzanne Van Assum's jazzy blues set.

Great fun was had by all, with many guests happily going home with wonderful Door Prizes, Congratulations to all our winners!. Special Congratulations to Barrie Webster, Winner of our Grand Referral Prize. Barrie won a 1 Night Stay at the Victoria Regent Hotel in an Oceanfront Executive Suite for up to 4 people with a bottle of Bubbly, Breakfast and free parking included.
Good food, tasty beverages, picture identifications contests and vibrant conversation made for a wonderful evening of joy and laughter.
The great "Island PhotoBooth" ( compliments of Callum Greig of Prime Mortgage Works & James Parr of Safe & Sound Home Inspection ) was new to this year's party and comprised of a Tickle Trunk full or eccentric hats and accessories for guests to wear and have their photos taken. This proved to be extremely popular ( scroll down for some of the crazy photos! ).
Rosemarie would like to say a Special Thank You for all the cards and birthday gestures she received on the day, plus the unexpected cake and rendition of Happy Birthday being sang to her. As she thought she'd kept it underwraps, she was delightfully surprised!.

The event could not have run smoothly without the help of our three daughters; Alexis, Nicolia and Rhea who seamlessly took care of the food, event preparation and delivery from start to finish.
