Round The Legion
Salutations, Comrades! Well, we’ve just about given up on witchcraft, hope and prayers for the arrival of spring. If and when it happens, we can rejoice.
The Branch extends its sincere condolences to the family and relatives of Ike Anderson, who passed away last week.
Thinking caps on, members. Branch Manager Shelly wants all the ideas you can come up with for new events, functions, contests and whatever to pass on to our Sports, Ways and Means, and Entertainment committees, like the Scramble Golf Tournament at Rosebud coming up in late June. The entry list filled up immediately, but anyone interested can still sign up as a possible fill-in for the in- evitable pull-outs along the way.
Watch for the next newsletter, and please remember to advise us if your address has changed.
The Branch will be closed all day on Thursday, May 28, for preparations for the Veterans’ Dinner that evening.
For a trial period, Branch hours will now be from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays; 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday; and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays and stat holidays!
Friday Meat Draw: Tickets by Joan and Burt and, for once, neither of them won anything! All the prizes were evenly distributed: Meat Packs to Pat Greene, Wee Doris, Linda Herman, Bob Lytle and Louise Zuk, who came all the way from St. Albert. Ann Horn and Shelly won refreshments, and Debbie Laplante pocketed the 50/50 poke.
Saturday Meat Draw: Joanne Cote’ and daughter Janine sold the tickets, and the Cote’ curse came through this time, and all to the same table, too! Pack prizes to Joan and Joanne, Bea W., and Sonya Channell. Glenn Thomas won the remaining pack. Bea doubled in with refreshments (which we hope she shared with Joan), and refreshments also went to Jo-Anne Lesieur. Smooth Al Mortensen reluctantly (har) took home the 50/50. Sellers this Friday: Robert and Sonya; May 29: Sue and Maureen.
Barry K. was wondering why his frisbee kept getting bigger? Suddenly, it hit him. Take care, Comrades. Lest We Forget. Lest We Forget. Wayne Dunbar
