Legion holding its own with membership

The General Meeting held Oct 14 had a good turnout. Five new applications for membership were approved. In these times when so many Legions are losing members it appears that Br.#13 is holding its own.

The Honours and Awards Chairperson informed the meeting that five to 20-year pins will be available to those who have attained those landmarks and a special recognition of members with 25 years or more would be held Nov. 11. A dinner will be provided and year pins will be handed out. Invitations for this will be mailed to the recipients.

For the information of anyone who would be interested in being in the colour party for Nov. 11, there is a practice Nov. 5 at 11 a.m. at the theatre.

The Poppy and Remembrance Chair informed the meeting that things were under control for the Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day. There is always room for more volunteers in all areas but particularly for doing shifts with poppy trays at various businesses around town.

The Bursary Chair reminded the members that our Frank Morris/Br#13 Benevolent Fund Committee does not restrict the giving out of bursaries to any particular time of year but will review applications whenever they are received. Applications can be obtained at the Branch.

Much thanks is owed to the entertainment committee for the variety of events at the Branch. Line Dancing, two stepping, and the spaghetti dinner on Oct. 13 were a great success as well as the Tribute Artist bringing Garth Brooks music to our Branch.

Coming up is a sock hop on Oct. 20 along with Emmy’s burgers and a refreshment for just $12.

Oct.21 is the Meat Draw from 4-6 p.m. Ruins Board Shop Fundraiser for My Mountain Co-op will be Oct. 28.

The Annual Buster Patterson Memorial Pool Tournament will be held the weekend of Nov. 18. Sign up sheets will be up in the Branch by the end of October. Choir Night is Dec. 22.

Check the Branch website for information on all upcoming activities and events.

Due to Remembrance Day falling on our regular General Meeting Day, the General Meeting for the month of November will be held Sat. Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. We hope to see you there.

We will Remember Them
