     John Dolinski, insisting on performing numerous responsibilities is obviously the Units backbone.
    

Jim Lang is still hopping around the world with various parachuting excursions, 
    
earning more wings and sharing his military display, mostly on the Korean war

Missing from photo  James Balmforth and Bill Turner.

Corrections will be appreciated

During previous years Unit 50 has donated approximately $100,000.00 to youth and other needy organizations as well as plaques and benches, throughout central and southern Okanagan valley, funding derived from B.C. gaming commission, initiated and operated by Lew Mowry now discontinued. Well done Lew and other members who contributed.
