In Memory of Barb White
We would like to acknowledge a very special lady from our club who passed away on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012. Barb White was a long time member of our club, having joined in 2001. She was well known throughout Sooke as the "hot dog lady". You could see her at the helm of our bar-b-que grill most Saturday afternoons. She will be sadly missed by all her family and friends as well as all "her sisters" in our club. Rest in peace Barb! We love you.
