Welcome to Vancouver Island District

donna macfarlane125x166tThank you for visiting our District Webpage.

At the end of December 2015 we had 692 members distributed throughout the Islands, mostly on the East Coast of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. However, we do have members as far north as Black Creek, in the Alberni Valley and on the West Coast at Tofino.

We have Coffee Klatches in three areas of Vancouver Island; Victoria (Downtown), Victoria (Sidney), and the Comox Valley.

NOTE: Coffee Klatches in Parksville/Qualicum Beach and the Nanaimo area are no longer being held due to lack of interest. In the future, if any of the members decide that they would like to meet and are willing to set up a location, then as your District Director I will be happy to put out notices on a monthly, or bi-monthly or quarterly basis, please let me know location, time etc.

Twice a year we publish the VanIsle Newsletter, which is e-mailed to over 430 members and Canada Post mailed to 209 members. Information on Coming Events and Coffee Klatches, Annual General Meetings, pertinent information on pensions, travel and other important items applicable to Pionairs.

We have a Spring Luncheon and a Christmas Luncheon in the South Island area, Mid Island area and the Comox Valley area every year.

It is an important part of the Director's job to attend the Semi-Annual Directors meetings and the Directors meeting in conjunction with the AGM. We are made aware of many things at these meetings which we are able to advise our membership.
