                Welcome to all the partners of the FCABC conference delegates and to the wonderful city of Vernon.

                Our registration begins on June 4th from 11:00 to 6:00 pm at the Kal Tire Place and will continue on Monday June 5th from 9:00 – 12:00  Lunch will be served on the trade floor from 12:00 – 1:00.  followed by an open afternoon.  Our Opening Ceremonies begin at 6:00 pm followed by our banquet at 7:00

                Our partners program begins Tuesday at 9:00 in the Nicola Room followed by lunch. At 1:00 we shall board a bus to take us to a kangaroo farm and from there we shall go to Allen Brooks Nature Centre. At 4:00 we shall return to the hotel and enjoy a free evening.

                Wednesday we begin our day with a education program which will be PTSD  A Family Affair, followed by lunch at Tom’s Place.  At 1:00 we shall board a bus and go to Davison Orchard.  Then at 2:30 we shall visit the Mackie Lake House were we shall enjoy a tour and tea, returning to the hotel at 4:00. Theme Night begins at 6:00 with this years theme is Canada’s 150th birthday.  We expect to see lots of red and white.

                Thursday we will finalize the silent auction from 9:00 –12:00.  Then we shall have lunch with the delegates. 

                For the new members the silent auction is a donation from the members of either a home crafted item, items representing your fire dept. or a nice item from you home town.  All items are put on display for bidding and the funds raised all go to charity.

                Just a reminder to wear good walking shoes and to bring a light jacket or sweater as you never know what the weather will be.  Also for those of you who are bringing children, the hotel consignee will have a list of babysitters for those who need, as the partners program is an adult oriented  program.

                Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones and remember to fill in your evaluation sheets as your suggestions are welcome

Norma Claus,

Partners Program Chair.
