Lancaster Curling Club celebrates its 50th anniversary with a Birthday Bonspiel
On Saturday, the 14th, the Lancaster Club celebrated its 50th anniversary with a Birthday Bonspiel. Chef Jean Derez and his wife, Claudette, made the evening a fantastic success as all were treated to a culinary delight.

It was a truly memorable evening. Three of the original members from 1962 were present. One of the three, Beth Shoniker, blew out the candles on the birthday cake. Mac and Carol Edwards, were also present and Carol had everyone laughing as she mentioned some of the fun events and happenings at the club over the years. Ian Macintosh, who was a junior curler, in 1962, also relayed some of his memories.
