Annual General Meeting April 13th


Join us in person at the St. James Library for the CHS-MC Annual General Meeting (AGM). The second-floor program room is accessible by elevator.
The Chapter is required to hold a meeting, once a year, to report our activities to the membership and public. It is an opportunity for registered members to receive the 2022 Financial Statement. Members over 18 will vote on the 2023 Budget, elect board directors, and all are welcome to ask questions or voice concerns. We will celebrate the accomplishments of the Chapter as the board President, the office staff and various committees will give reports. 
The AGM is an excellent opportunity to connect with Chapter members. Contact the Chapter office at or 204.775.8625 to register. Refreshments will be served. It will be great to see you!

Big Prize News for Scotch Lovers

Do you have a $1,860 bottle of scotch in your liquor cabinet? This beautiful bottle will be accompanied by 18 bottles of wine to represent the 19 years of Gala Dinners of Culinary Inspirations. Gala attendees can muse over the dilemma of, "Do I or don't I", open it. 

"The basis for the 23-year-old Highland Single Malt is whisky, which was initially matured for 10 years in ex-Bourbon casks before spending the next 13 years in ex-red wine barrels from Château Montrose from the appellation Saint-Estèphe, Bordeaux. During this time it developed extraordinary dark berry fruit flavors, as a press release from Moet Hennessy reports".
