Quilt raffle raises funds for Pembroke Legion
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!
