On November 6th, we were lucky enough to host Jill Andrew, MPP of the Toronto-St. Paul - the riding in which our club resides. Outside of her amazing talk we were happy to host a number of different guests who helped us raise money for the club through Twilight Trivia to which our Sgt. @ Arms Diane was the big winner. A big thank you has to go to President-elect Andrew for finding us the Uptown Pub in the last minute!
