Passing of an RGC Staff member
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the recent, sudden passing of RGC Staff and Family member, Akram Chmait, who passed away on Sunday, April 16. Akram was a long-term employee of the Club having worked with us for the past 16 years, most recently as a Sous Chef. He was recognized as a true friend, a hard worker, and someone who was passionate and took great pride in all he did. From busy lunch and dinner rushes to going off-site to represent the Royal Glenora Club at events, Akram was truly someone the Club could always count on to do an impeccable job each and every time.
A celebration of life was held for Akram on April 20, 2017. All of us at the RGC miss him dearly and we ask you to please keep his family and his RGC Family in your thoughts during this time.

The Incredibles movie night – Saturday, April 29
The government forced all superheroes into hiding as civilians like us, but that doesn’t mean superheroes don’t exist! When his life, his family, and the world is put into danger by the evil genius Syndrome, Mr. Incredible—a famous superhero back in the glory days of crime fighting—jumps into action to try to save the day (with help from his superhero family and friends, of course!). Join your fellow RGC superheroes on our fun crime fighting adventure as we enjoy this Pixar animated film family favourite! The movie will begin at 6pm in the Regal Glen, so please make sure your little ones have dinner beforehand as we will not allow outside food in the room. However, we will make sure there is plenty of popcorn and water! Your little crime fighting heroes are also invited to come dressed as their favourite superhero!
