Everyone is welcome to attend. You can even purchase a chance to win two steak and lobster tickets. Ticket cost is three for $5.

We had a great turnout for our Mother’s Day dinner. Thank you to all who came out to support us. For Father’s Day we are planning a breakfast. The winner of the basket was Kathy McKay-Jones. Thanks to Eva Brushett for donating the basket and another basket for Father’s Day.
On Friday, May 19 the family of Muggs McInnis is holding a Last Beer Call for Muggs at the branch from 6 to 10 p.m. Friends are welcome to come out, swap stories and raise a glass in remembrance.
Our president, Bob Howell, and his wife Colleen made a significant donation to the branch that helped with bills. We also received another donation from a member who wishes to remain anonymous. Thank you for your generosity!
You are down to the last two fish and chip Fridays of the season. The 26th will be the last one until September. Barbecues start June 9.
We are looking for a few student volunteers who need hours to help us with our Lobsterfest on June 3. If you know someone who would like to work have them call the legion at 613-687-2504 and leave name and number for call back.

Join us on the web at www.petawawalegion.ca or on Facebook at Petawawa Royal Canadian Legion Br 517. Each year, Bishop Smith Catholic High School’s Ancora Group (Ancora is a Latin word which signifies anchor, refuge, hope and support) engage in fundraising activities to make a donation to the Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre. This year, the group (with support from students in the Grade 10 religion class) raised $300 through a bake sale and a hat day held in April. All of the funds will help support the Robbie Dean Centre’s counselling services.
