Parksville Newcomers Alumni Invitation

This message is for all third year Newcomer members who are about to “graduate” from PNC in September.

The Parksville Newcomers Alumni Club, (PNAC) invites PNC “graduates” to join its club and continue the fellowship and activities that you enjoyed as a Newcomer. Many of their activities are already combined with Newcomers (golf, RV, walking, etc.) so some of you may already be familiar with the Alumni.

You can join the Alumni group at their next monthly meeting on:

Thursday, Sept. 19, at 2:00 PM at the Parksville Legion on Hirst St. (beside Rod & Gun Hotel).

If you would like your name added to the Newcomers Alumni mailing list, to receive their Newsletter, please email Gary Way at
