CAT'S EYE: The Outlook Christmas Party
Sometimes you’re lucky enough to work in a really special place. Such is the case here at The Outlook. The dedicated people behind the scenes here are more like family than co-workers and their determination to be the best shows in every issue. From the sales staff to distribution and editorial, everyone takes responsibility for putting out a quality newspaper every week. This month, staff celebrated the season and toasted the year at Le Bistro Chez Michel in North Vancouver. It was a great annual get-together complete with fabulous food and friends. And as Christmas approaches, I’d like to take this chance to dedicate this column to the hard working folk you don’t get to see, but who mean everything to our continued success. Thank you and happy holidays...
