Legion makes some changes

Terrace branch looks at meeting dates, elects new commander at zone meeting and plans for upcoming events, including pool tournament

Changes in times bring forth changes in Branch #13.

A notice of motion was put forward that the day and time of general meetings be changed from the second Tuesday of each month, except July and August when there are no meetings, to the second Saturday of the month at 1300hrs (1 p.m.).

This motion will be discussed and voted on at the next general meeting and if it passes, will commence at the first meeting in September. The next General Meeting is Tuesday, May 12, at 1900 hrs (7 p.m.). Come on out and have your say in the matter.

The membership was informed that there would be pool tournament for members and guests during the month of May with cash prizes. The sign-up sheet is at the Branch – come put your name up for some fun and comradeship.

A report was given on the recent Zone Meeting held in Kitimat. It was an election meeting and the new Zone Commander is Cde. Ray Hallock from Terrace who received a congratulatory round of applause, Cde Geoff Hutchinson from Smithers was elected Deputy Zone Commander and Cde. Marg Bogaart from Kitimat is the new Vice Chair. Cde Doug Misfeldt was given thanks for his service as Zone Commander for the past six years. The next Zone Meeting will be held in Smithers in the fall of 2015. Terrace will be hosting the Zone Curling and 8-Ball play offs in the fall. Kitimat will host darts and Smithers crib.

The new Ladies Auxiliary Zone Commander is J. Deane from Kitimat. She will be following Nancy Gray who has served in that position for many years.

Looking ahead, this years D-Day Dinner is slated for June 7th. Invitations will be in the mail around the middle of May. This is always a special celebration in the life of the Legion and under the guidance of Cde. Peter Crompton we look forward to an enjoyable time.

Don’t forget the meat draws for members and guests every Saturday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and of course the Steak Dinner on the first Friday of every month.

Remember as long as you are a Canadian Citizen and subscribe to the aims and objects of the Legion, you are eligible for membership. Applications are available at the Branch, pick one up, fill it out and join a group of people who care – about Veterans, about youth, about seniors and about our community.
