Wanda Lavergne Branch 72 man­ager would like to thank Holly Lavergne who made and do­nated the quilt for the fundraiser. Also, this fundraiser could not have been a suc­cess with­out men­tion­ing the de­voted ticket sell­ers Su­san Dev­ereaux, Fran Adams, Sherry Wil­son, Linda Splaine, Brady Ste­wart, Colleen Lan­thier, Donna He­bert and the branch bar­tenders. Ku­dos also go out to the many sup­port­ers who pur­chased tick­ets. Robert Ni­cholls from Kil­laloe won the quilt. Thank you for all your con­tin­u­ing sup­port for Branch 72.

Four-hand eu­chre win­ners for Thursday, May 5 were Shirley Lin­den­bach 1st, Roseanne DiGrechie 2nd, Rita Os­mond and Pauline Beaton tied for 3rd, Patty McGurre 4th. This is an on­go­ing weekly event that takes place ev­ery Thursday in the lounge. Game time is 7 p.m. and costs $6 per per­son. Every­one is wel­come to come in and play.

Every­body must have heard of Gil­lan Rutz some­time over the last 45 years of him en­ter­tain­ing in and around the Val­ley. But if you haven’t, now is your chance! This Satur­day night, May 20, he is in our lounge from 6 to 10 p.m. Bring your out of town guests to the branch Satur­day. I prom­ise he is worth your time. He has many en­ter­tain­ing sto­ries, jokes and most of all, a wide va­ri­ety of mu­sic. Every­one is wel­come.

This Mon­day, May 22 is Vic­to­ria Day and the branch will be closed but will re-open Tues­day with reg­u­lar hours.

The Pem­broke Legion gen­eral meet­ing takes place at 7 p.m. in the hall on Thursday, May 25. Come out and view the new ex­ec­u­tive as they are in­stalled into their po­si­tions. It’s a good chance to meet and con­grat­u­late them.

The Pem­broke Legion’s fun golf tour­na­ment is on Satur­day, July 8.

There is a sign up sheet to reg­is­ter to play on the board in the lounge. Cost is $35 per per­son and must be paid in ad­vance of sign­ing up. This in­cludes nine holes of golf at The In­dian River golf club, a meal and prizes. You do not have to be a mem­ber of our branch to play. Every­one is wel­come.

Re­meme­ber, no plea­sures last so well as good fel­low­ship and friend­ship!
