In the spring of 1980, the 17 presidents of the Air Canada Recreation Association (ACRA) met in the Air Canada executive board room at Place Ville Marie in Montreal.

tmb acra presidents 1980A highlight of the meeting centred around the reports from each ACRA president regarding their association's most successful event or project during the previous year. One project cooked up by the Winnipeg ACRA, finally got out of the oven with the publication of a cookbook entitled "Favourite Recipes". Each president was presented with a copy.

The Halifax ACRA sponsored a lobster party set on an island rented for the occasion. The London UK ACRA sponsored a children's party with a difference. It was held at Easter instead of Christmas time. It was explained that since so many events take place over the Christmas holiday season, the idea of an Easter party was well received.
