West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Christmas Dinner at Capilano Golf Club

Dec 15, 2006

By Catherine Barr


It was a dark and stormy night . . . literally. But even a powerful winter storm couldn't knock the wind out of this group's sails. The West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce's annual Christmas party will be part of a December to remember as the power failed at Capilano Golf and Country Club minutes before guests arrived for the seasonal holiday celebration. No one seemed scared of the shadows here as tiny flashlights were brought in and the staff served a fabulous dinner followed by entertainment and live music - unplugged, of course. In fact, dining by candlelight and dancing in the dark may just become the norm for next year since the party was such a big hit in the end.


shone brighter than every last week as members gathered up at Capilano Golf and Country Club to celebrate . . . in the dark???
