Legion giving out bursaries, fundraising for service dog

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 13 votes in new executives to fill vacancies and plans for upcoming events

May 14 saw a good turnout for the monthly meeting.

As a result of the Vice President, Brian McIntyre, moving in a southerly direction, an election was held to fill the vacancy on executive. Cde. Ian Millar, who had been a Director, was voted in as the new Vice President and then Cde. Ted Moss, a recent transfer from Ontario, was elected to fill the Directors position. Congratulations to both members and best wishes for a successful term of office. We will greatly miss Cde. McIntyre and thank him for his service to our Branch. We wish him well in his new home.

A report of the recent Zone Meeting in Houston was distributed for information, it was an interesting and informative meeting and Cdes. Burrows, D. Misfeldt and M. Misfeldt all indicated their enjoyment of the event.

Elections were held for delegates to the Dominion Convention to be held in St. Johns Newfoundland in June. We look forward to hearing about future plans for the Legion upon their return.

The entertainment Chairman informed the meeting that Ranger Dan has been booked for the Riverboat Days Dance at the Legion on July 29th. There will also be a special Trivia night held in conjunction with Riverboat Days activities the Saturday evening of August 6th. Queries are already coming in regarding the parade and it looks like it just might be the best ever.

Motions were passed to make donations amounting to more than $2,000 to two local youth groups and an adult group that is well known for their contributions to the community.

This is the time of year when students who are planning advanced education are looking for financial assistance and the Legion has bursaries to offer. If you are going on to school, have resided in Terrace for the past two years and have a relative who was a resident of Terrace at the time of their enlistment or has resided in Terrace for a minimum of five years since honourable termination of “Service,” pick up an application form at the Branch and perhaps we will be able to assist you.

The Legion is raffling an ATV and Trailer with proceeds earmarked for the purchase and training of a “Service Dog”. These dogs have proved to be invaluable in aiding victims of PTSD to cope with life.

Don’t forget the General Meeting on Saturday, June 11th at 2 p.m. It will be the last meeting prior to summer stand down and there is always important matters up for discussion.

We Will Remember Them.
