CBC Vancouver 25 Year Honourees with Managers at
CBC 20 Year Association Christmas Party, Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on December 2, 2008

Keeping in the seasonal mood, this Flashback captured the CBC Vancouver employees celebrating the achievement of 25 years' service with the Corporation at the annual CBC 20 Year Association Christmas Dinner Party held at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.  It has been a long-standing tradition on the West Coast for the Association and CBC British Columbia to join forces in honouring staff who have reached this milestone during the year.  Following the lavish buffet dinner, CBC management pays tribute to each honouree and presents him/her with a plaque commemorating their years of service.  The CBC 20 Year Association gifts each honouree with a one-year complimentary membership and photographs to remember this special evening.

In 2008, the CBC 25 year honourees at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club were Paul Heeney, Janet Leclair, Florence Morrison, David Turrin and Wayne Williams.

Front L-R:  Florence Morrison (Administrative Support, Production Resources), Janet Leclair (Producer, French Services), Liz Hughes (News Director, CBC British Columbia) and Lyne Rainville (Communications Manager, French Services B.C. and Yukon).

Back L-R:  Paul Heeney (Reporter/Editor – TV News), John Mang (Manager, Production & Resources, CBC British Columbia), David Turrin (Sales Administration Representative), Wayne Williams (Reporter/Editor – TV News) and Jennifer Smith (Director, Sales & Marketing Western Canada, CBC Television-Vancouver).

Drew Schemenauer (Senior Remote Area Transmitter Technologist, Prince George) was also a CBC 25 year honouree in 2008 but was unable to attend the event.
