Celebrating the season and the successes of the year is what it was all about this month for members of the West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. Donning their Christmas best, guests, dignitaries and friends gathered on Dec. 9th at Capilano Golf and Country Club for a gourmet dinner buffet and libations. Check out some of these holiday smiles.

Earlier this month, there was a gathering of famous faces and local talent at Opus Hotel as movie, television and industry professionals gathered with their hosts for the "Red Light Lounge". Lots of famous local North Shore faces were seen schmoozing at this off-set soiree which gave everyone a chance just to be themselves.

West Van's Bruce Vernon, of Homepro Handyman, was all smiles as he accompanied gospel singer/actress Lovena Fox. Look for her next in the starring role in the Arts Club's "Evita".
