Congratulations to John Crawley and Alex Macfarlane recognized in Calgary - Les Marmitons International Gala

John Crawley was last year’s winner of the Tom Devitt Award!

“This award is presented to a member who best represents the spirit of Tom Devitt
in bringing humour, fun and a sense of dedication and enthusiasm to the Marmiton goal 
of friendship and gastronomy.”  John has been a member since 1993, and is clearly
deserving of this award.  
Alex Macfarlane has been appointed to the Les Marmitons International Board!
 This keeps the tradition of a “Macfarlane”  on the Board

The 2020 Gala in 2022,  June 9-12, 2022 was a wonderful success.  Thanks to all of those who organized the event and to the Les Marmitons chapter members who attended from all over Canada and the United States.
