Women’s group celebrates 20th birthday

The Langley chapter of the Valley Women’s Network members get together each month for a meal, some laughs, some networking and some charity work.

The June 17 gathering will have a little something extra – a 20th anniversary celebration.

The members are all ages, some in business, some not. Any local woman is invited to learn about the group.

Reservations coordinator Brianna Carson calls the Langley group the “warmest and most supportive group I have encountered. I look forward to meeting with the Valley Women every month for encouragement, camaraderie, a shared meal and a lot of laughter.”

At Christmas the group donated to Re/Max Treeland Realty’s hampers and the group supports Critter Care Wildlife Society. The 20th anniversary will have a donation to a local charity.

The speakers will include past members, such as Meredith Miller who was there at the beginning. She continued to attend Langley meetings even after moving to Abbotsford a few years ago and starting a chapter there.

The June 17 meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. at the Sunrise Banquet Centre, 5640 188 St.

The deadline for reservations is June 12 and the cost is $24.
