At their December meeting, the Ladies Auxiliary to Branch #13 also elected their executive for the ensuing term:

President Donna Stach

Vice President Anne Evans

Secretary Jessie Gowe

Treasurer Terri Foster

Director Earla Peden

Congratulations Ladies and best wishes for a successful term of office.

The Ladies presented the Branch with a check for $1,000 from fundraising projects they have held throughout the year.

Such assistance from the Ladies is greatly appreciated by the Branch as it assists them with their works in the community.

The Executive of the L.A. would like to remind all members and those who would like to become members that their meetings are held in the Branch on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m.

A total of nearly $10,000 in donations was proposed by the committee and passed by the membership to be given out to various organizations in the community to assist them with their good works.

It was noted that Steak Night for January would be changed from the first Friday of the month to Friday the 9th for January only.

Members were reminded that the 60th Annual Legion Bonspiel will be coming up the last weekend of January.

Those wishing to participate can register at the curling rink or at the Legion.

Opening Ceremonies will be Friday evening at the rink, a banquet at the Legion on Saturday night and fireworks later on that same evening.

Final Games will be Sunday afternoon followed by closing ceremonies.

As you enjoy your Christmas festivities, please, take time to thank a Veteran without whose sacrifices we would not have the freedom to enjoy this Holy time of year.

Lest We Forget.
