We are saddened to hear of the passing of Ingeborg Von Maydell,who has been a long time member of BCHNS.
Inge, as we knew her, held the BCHNS Secretary position for many years to 2007, faithfully writing by hand & then mailing out to the membership. When the computer age & email arrived, Inge did not have a computer, so graciously handed over the Secretary position to someone with those skills.

This annual event was held at Van Dusen Gardens on May 10, 2016. BCHNS was invited to have a display table where Cheryl Entwistle & Jackie Ratzlaff manned the display in vintage costumes.
