We got a chance to take some nice shots of our Dinner Society and Social Club Members during the events last month. The Dinner Society learned how to make delicious chicken pitas and the Social Club group had fun making cool 3D puzzles and some great lego structures!

The CN Tower held the record for world’s tallest freestanding structure from 1975 until 2007, when it was surpassed by Burj Khalifa in Dubai.  At a mere 553.33 m (1,815.4 ft), the tower is now only in 6th place for this record, with Burj Khalifa still in first place (829.8 m/2,722 ft).  Technically the CN Tower has never held the record for world’s tallest building because it doesn’t have floors continuously from the ground and is therefore not considered a building according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) or Emporis. Instead it is categorized as a tower.
