Royal Canadian Legion plans garage sale

Lots of activities at Branch 13 located in Terrace, BC

By Dallis Winsor

The monthly Veterans’ Dinner will be held on Thurs. June 21 at 5:30 PM (always the 3rd Thurs. of the month).  Lots of time and effort goes into the dinners so all veterans are urged to mark their calendars and participate.

Join with us during the Stanley Cup playoffs (if they’re not already over by press time).  The TV is always on!  Watch on our HUGE, new video screen.

The Branch will be holding a fundraising Garage Sale on Saturday June 16 starting at 9:00 AM.   Items will be on display inside the Branch so it’s on, rain or shine.  Many have generously donated items and we thank them.

The latest donation was a large quantity of mistinted paint, courtesy of Marilyn of Terrace Interiors.  There’s still lots of time to donate.  Please drop your items off at the Branch.   Events such as this help us to help the community (such as the Branch’s recent $12,000 or so of donations to various worthy, and local, community groups).

Our popular first-Friday-of-the-Month steak suppers will be on hold until September.  Enjoy your summer and see you at supper in the fall!

A great Mothers’ Day supper was well-attended and well-enjoyed—this will probably be an annual event given the success of our first one.  Many thanks to all the men who helped give the ladies the royal treatment (especially to Brian, our chef extraordinaire!).

Branch #13 sponsors the Riverboat Days Parade and Annual BBQ (August 4 this year).  Mark your calendars.  Parade entry forms are available at the Branch.

Prizes will be awarded at the Royal Canadian Legion at 1:00 PM, after the parade.  Closing date for entries is July 27, 2012.

We’re also looking for judges, parade marshals and other volunteers to man (or woman) the barricades, etc.  Please contact Joyce Bradley, Parade Chairperson, or contact the Branch at 250-635-5825.

The parade and BBQ are highlights of two weeks of fun-filled events and entertainment for the whole family.  The theme this year is “Unity Through Diversity”.

Joyce asks:  “What makes a community?  It’s you and me.  We each have a unique story, talents and skills which contribute to making Terrace and the Northwest region as vibrant as possible.  It doesn’t matter if you were born here, just passing through or decided to stay.  This year’s Riverboat Days Parade will celebrate our diverse journies and stories, united by being here together.  We encourage all parade participants to tell their stories in a unique and creative way.”

The Kitimat Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has invited Terrace Branch members to participate in Kitimat’s annual Canada Day Parade (July 1, of course).  Please attend in uniform.

Members and bonafide guests are always welcome at the Branch located, appropriately enough, on Legion Avenue, just off Lakeslse.

See you at the Branch—
