Annual General Meeting & Summer Barbeque Toronto Lawn Tennis Club 

Sunday August 19, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.


We are returning to the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club for the 2018 Annual General Meeting. As is our tradition, this will be followed by our Aussie buffet barbeque, plus an assortment of exceptional wines from the cellar.  

The reception is from 2:00 to 2:30, the AGM at 2:30 then we sit down outside on the covered deck at 3:00 for barbeque with a selection of wines.  

This year there are two Directors standing for re-election this year, Walter Winnik and Cathy Waiten and one new Director, Joe Gentile, who recently joined the Board, will be standing for a two year term. Other nominations may be submitted from the floor.  

For reception wines this year, thanks to Hobbs & Company and Bold Works, we have two Aussie wines, Food Truck Wines Shiraz and Chardonnay, plus Joiy,  a  lightly sparkling white wine made from grapes grown in Australia (40%) and New Zealand (60%) , only 10% alcohol and in a cute little can, ideal for pool-side sipping. Off-dry and floral. Be sure to try these before the meeting and chat with Emma Herlihy, Hobbs/Bold Works Agency GM.
