The Vancouver Old Farts was founded on December 12th, 2001 when a small group of friends decided to get together for a Christmas luncheon with Leonard Zurkowski and Stephen Elmy who was visiting from Toronto. That first luncheon had 22 friends get together.  A year later, a couple of the original group suggested that we get together again and invite some more mutual friends. That 2nd gathering produced 52 friends and it was decided to make this an annual affair.  The group grew each year until we could not take more than 100 people in our original location, Foo's Ho Ho Restaurant, so in 2009, we moved to Floata Seafood Restaurant, where we are now welcoming in excess of 120 members at Christmas.  In 2008, we also decided to hold a Summer luncheon, which takes place at Sharky's Seafood Restaurant in Ladner.  This year, being our 10th Anniversary, we decided to get everyone a nice coffee mug, which serves to remind everyone that we are now 10 years old, but also to remind everyone of the website address. Two different mugs were created, one for Founding Members and the other for each and every one of you.


And now for this year's pictures....
