SLCAO 40th Anniversary Christmas Party – 2016

Dear Members and friends,

We would like to thank the volunteers, sponsors, all those who participated and the well-wishers for helping us to make the sold-out 2015 SLCAO 40th Anniversary Christmas party a success. Without the help of all of you, this event would not have been possible. We also regret that we could not fit all of the members due to space limits.

At the event, Mayor of Ottawa, on behalf of the City Council, His Worship Jim Watson presented SLCAO President Mr. Anura Ferdinand with a 40th Anniversary Commemoration plaque.

Attached herewith are some photographs made available. All event photographs will be available in the next 60 days while photobooth images will be emailed to those who purchased in the next 30-45 days.

Once again, thanking you for all your support!

Executive Committee, SLCAO
