Sion Davies, a META member since 2002, lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday May 24, after spending 3 weeks in the Mission Hospital. Sion was also a racer in his younger years.
There will be an Memorial Service for Sion on Sunday the 5th of June 11:00 o’clock at the Royal Canadian Legion # 57 in Mission BC (32627 Logan Ave.).
As you may have heard on the news, there was a major fire in White Rock recently that left 100 people homeless. The White Rock Blues Society will be holding a benefit concert for these people, which will take place on Sunday, June 5, 2016 from 1 until 7 pm. The event takes place at the Pacific Inn Hotel, 1160 King George Blvd., in South Surrey. There will be a number of acts performing, and Gale Force Blues (Manny Zumm’s group) will be the closing act. I hope all of you will be able to come out and support these people, many of whom have lost everything. Admission is by donation (minimum $10 per person) at the door. Cash only and no advance sales. There will be food (BBQ) available and a cash bar. I am not sure that any of these will be available using a credit card as food and drink at most WRBS events are cash only. We really hope you can find the time to join Manny and other META members for a day of great music and delicious food. The guy supplying the BBQ is the real deal, so come hungry!!
