At long last, the time has come. A time for sharing memories and pictures; a time for food and revelry; but most importantly, a time for prizes!

With the AGM & Christmas party upon us, it is traditional to give new executive members the opportunity to be nominated to join the executive or re-elect the existing members. This year we do not have any core executive positions becoming vacant, but if there is anyone that would like to join the executive for any particular positions, we encourage you throw your hat in the ring.

We are however looking this year for someone to take on the vacant volunteer position of Librarian. The role requires the volunteer to procure new literature, maintain the list of literature, and run the Library at the General Meetings.

This year our big annual Christmas Draw has three major prizes to give away to three lucky winners—an iPhone XS 64GB, a pair of AirPods, and a Series 4 GPS Apple Watch. Winners must be members in good standing. We currently have some tickets left, so hurry and pick yours up here http://vmug.bc.ca/christmas-draw/ before the last few are gone.

We will also have many regular draw prizes to choose from from our own collection of door prizes, local reseller donations, and donations from local artisan members, as well as the membership at large. If you would like to contribute a gift to the pool of draw prizes please bring them to the AGM, there will be a table set up for all of the gifts, and we would welcome your contribution to it.

For those who wish to share some of their projects or slideshows, please bring your favourite photos and creative pieces to show to the group on a USB this is a great opportunity to share with us how you spend your time on your Mac and iPad. Chas will be showcasing your work along with him traditional collection of commercial Holiday videos.

All in all it has been a wonderful year. We so appreciate your support and being part of this vibrant community. We all look forward to getting together with you on the 12th to celebrate.

See you soon, and if we don’t…on behalf of the whole Executive, have a wonderful Christmas, and Holiday season.
