During this continuing Covid pandemic the IWFS Vancouver Branch under the wonderful leadership of Jim & Milena Robertson and their team have done an excellent job of keeping the members together with regular interesting events. Another successful one was held on October 18, 2022 at the celebrated restaurant of Chef’s Choice Chinese Cuisine with talented Chef Tommy Pang and conscientious service manager James Law.
