Last day at the Chilliwack Airport Coffee Shop

Mar 06, 2017 07:14 pm

February 26th was the last day at Chilliwack’s Airport Coffee Shop.

Several club members came out for a final breakfast in Chillwack, most enjoying a piece of homemade pie for dessert.

Judi and here sisters were presented with some flowers on behalf of the club and were wished success with their new location at Langley airport by the Canadian Museum of Flight.

We will all miss their excellent service, good food, warm atmosphere and awesome pie that was such an important part of Chilliwack airport for over 35 years and a major draw for many.
