Petawawa Civ­i­tan mem­bers visit Cob­den club

The Daily Observer - - NEWS - MARIE ARNOLD

Hi once again to all Civ­i­tan mem­bers and ev­ery­one else. Here I am with just a bit of news from The Greater Petawawa Civ­i­tan Club.

On Satur­day, May 6 Civ­i­tan Dar­lene Lam­bert and I at­tended the Cob­den and District 43rd an­niver­sary din­ner and dance. I have to say we had a good time. Cob­den may be a small town but they have a lot of Civ­i­tan mem­bers and they are hav­ing a lot of fun do­ing what they do to help others.

Then on May 13, Civ­i­tans Dar­lene, Donna For­get, Cathy McCabe, John Van­denBarr and my­self at­tended the Spring Con­ven­tion in Perth. This is where Civ­i­tan mem­bers get to­gether with other Civ­i­tan Clubs to dis­cuss what Civ­i­tan is do­ing and what we are plan­ning on do­ing in the up­com­ing months. And we also have a great time with our fel­low Civ­i­tan mem­bers.

The Cob­den and District Civ­i­tan Club will be hold­ing a golf tour­na­ment on Aug. 4. All Civ­i­tan Clubs are wel­come to take part in this fun day.

On Sun­day night, the Greater Petawawa Civ­i­tan Club held its Mother’s Day Bingo. The event fea­tured a draw for two spe­cial gifts for only great-grand­moth­ers and great-great-grand­moth­ers that I got to present. All other bingo play­ers re­ceived bingo mark­ers. Oh don’t worry all you fa­thers, grand-fa­thers and great­grand­fa­thers, we have not for­got­ten you. Your day is com­ing up soon.

Heads up! The Petawawa Civ­i­tan Club is plan­ning on hold­ing a horse shoe tour­na­ment in the fall. We will have more in­for­ma­tion about this event in the com­ing months. If you would like to take part in play­ing horse shoes, please con­tact Civ­i­tan John Van­denBarr at 613-717-5674 or see him at our Sun­day night bingo. Civ­i­tan Marie Arnold is still work­ing on the dog and cat beds.

I hope that ev­ery­one has a happy Vic­to­ria Day. Bring all your friends and fam­ily out to the bingo Sun­day night and have some fun. Maybe you’ll have some luck at bingo too. The 52 spe­cial is up to $1,300 on Sun­day, May 21 and will go up to $1,400.00 if it is not won. There are lots of other great prizes as well. So come out and sup­port the Greater Petawawa Civ­i­tan Club Bingo so we can keep sup­port­ing those that need our help in the com­mu­nity. For those that do not know where we are lo­cated it is at the Petawawa Civic Cen­tre. We are up­stairs and there is an el­e­va­tor for those that need it. The Greater Petawawa Civ­i­tan Club wants to wel­come all new­com­ers to our great town of Petawawa. We know you will get to love it here and want to stay for­ever. We have ev­ery­thing here for both old, young and in-be­tween.

Now, for all of you that are posted, we wish you good luck and en­joy your new post­ing and we hope to see you all back in Petawawa again. You can al­ways come just for a visit with the friends you have here.

Thought for the week: Three words that you should learn to say are “please” and “thank you.”

Laugh­ter is the best: He­len was com­plain­ing to her friends that the tow­els in her ho­tel room where so thick she could hardly close her suit­case.

That’s all for this week, God bless.
