The Society held its St. David's Day celebration on February 28th
- it was a splendid event! Over 80 people enjoyed lunch at the
University Club, University of Victoria, and it was significant that
a number of them were first time attendees to such a cultural feast.
Evidence of the successful honouring of our patron saint is posted
on in the Photo Gallery. From gatherings in the bar, through the
anthems, toasts, greetings from other Societies, and the buffet
lunch, to the entertainment by our very own members - all induced
the appropriate hwyl and energy associated with our very own
Dathliad Gwyl Dewi Sant.
