Western Gourmet celebrated its 20th anniversary on Friday 14th June at Muirfield Golf Club.

We had 80 members, past members and visitors there in a special theme meeting "Bridging the Gap", honouring the past to plan the future. It was a very successful night with over 100 photos for viewing on our Facebook page.
Here is a group photo of current members who were present.
