September 2022 | Final Bailli Message from
Toni-Marie Ion-Brown

I would like to start with a thank you to the Chaîne membership.

t has been my absolute honour to serve as the Regional Bailli for the past four years.

The over-two years of leading through the pandemic were challenging, and at times the task seemed overwhelming as I am a hospitality professional and some days were very heavy.

I want to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to each and every member of this council for your dedication, support and friendship.

I want to also give thanks to the Bailli Honoraire’s that I was fortunate to learn from in my ten years of membership. Thank you to the many friends and colleagues who have offered me guidance and support.

I will continue to draw from your wisdom as I move forward to a new role in October. I look forward to continuing to serve the Chaîne membership as Chancelier at the National Office.

Also leaving the Calgary Council is Max Labhardt, Vice Conseiller Culinaire. Thank you, Max, for four years of commitment and service and for your dedicated continued participation in the Chaîne.

As we round out the 2022 calendar of events, Joe Scorgie shall be at the helm; with official Intronization as Bailli taking place in December 16 at the Chapitre.

I know Joe is perfectly prepared to lead as Calgary goes into our 49th year.

I shall let Joe explain in his inaugural message his Council changes.

Below is a list of 2022 events:

September 24 AGM / Dîner Amical The Ranchmen’s Club – SOLD OUT
October 7 l’Ordre Mondial Jasper Park Lodge
October 8 Dîner Amical Jasper Park Lodge

I look forward to dining with you soon.

Respectfully yours in service,
