The Men’s Club Poker and Pastrami Night, on Thursday January 19th, was a huge success.
Almost 60 men turned out for an evening of Texas Hold’em, terrific raffle prizes, craft beer, and pastrami sandwiches.
Based on feedback from our members, this will certainly become an annual event.
Thanks to all who attended!
Simple Steps to a Longer, Healthier, Happier Life
With Dr. Art Hister. Held on November 17 , 2016.
Approximately 45 guys attended the 3rd Men’s Club event featuring Dr. Art Hister speaking about Men’s Health. Dr. Hister is a well known MD, speaker, TV personality (CBC, Global, CKNW), author and health consultant. Dr. Hister was articulate, funny and direct about what is facing the ageing male population. He discussed a common sense approach to living well including: eating
moderately, exercising, getting enough sleep and moderate alcohol drinking. He said to beware of falling (especially if on medication and up for the late night bathroom trip) and to practice Balance, Aerobics, Resistance, Flexibility (to keep in good shape). He said to be critical of all the medial studies and new fad diets.
Dr. Hister spoke for about an hour, and then responded during Q & A from the attendees. There was a lot of discussion, and the event was well received.
Thanks to Lorne Weinstein, Larry Bloom and Keith Nusgart for coordinating.
Several members of the Men’s Cub came out on Wednesday. October 26 to help with Project Isaiah which supports the Jewish Food Bank. Don and Kelly McGregor, Barry Silverman, Warren Ratner, Larry Bloom and Keith Nusgart helped with sorting food, shlepping boxes, taping, stacking and all kinds of tasks. We bonded with the other 35 or so volunteers and boxed food for over 2 hours.
Thanks to the help of the volunteers, many families in Vancouver’s Jewish community will have groceries. This event is slated to become an annual event for the Men’s Club Tikun Olam committee. One Men’s club volunteer said this was “a most rewarding experience”.
“I walked into the event not knowing anyone, and by the end of the evening it felt like I knew everyone. Amazing!”;
“Loved the craft beer!”;
“Fantastic. You should make this a yearly event.”;
“Didn’t expect such a broad age range. Please keep me posted on future activities.”
Thanks to all who attended the event!
