Terrace Legion Branch #13 to hold election

This Saturday is the day for voting in the new executive officers

An enthusiastic group of Legion members gathered at the Branch to enjoy the Grey Cup on Nov. 27th.

Everyone had a good time and while the majority in attendance were cheering for the West, some of the more vocal fans were cheering for the East.Perhaps that is what brought them so much luck. A nice light meal was available and we do wish to thank the volunteers who made, donated and set it out.

Trivia Night just keeps getting more and more popular. It seems there are some pretty sharp teams competing – come on out and see if you can beat them. Sat. Dec. 3rd 7 p.m. is the next chance to beat the Champs. Following Dec. 3rd, Trivia Night and those who run it are taking Christmas leave until January 2017 but look forward to seeing you all then.

The long standing and much looked forward to Choir Night is fast approaching. Dec. 17th is the date. Come and join your friends for an evening of music and fun.

Don’t forget the regular Saturday afternoon Meat Draws commencing at 4 p.m. and Steak Night the first Friday of each month. Remember that you can now legally bring your children with you to Steak Night and enjoy a night out together and dad does not have to barbecue, nor does mom have to clean up afterwards.

The Bonspiel Committee is already hard at work preparing for the Annual Legion Bonspiel on January 27, 28, 29, 2017. There are already names up on the draw sheet at the curling rink so don’t get left out. Get your family, or your buds together and plan for a great weekend.

Saturday Dec. 10th at 2 p.m. – Branch #13, Royal Canadian Legion – MEMBERS BE THERE. That is when the election of officers will be held for the ensuing term. It is your right and your duty as a member to have your say in who will run our Branch for the next year.

What makes a good executive officer for our Legion? Not necessarily your relatives or your friends. Certainly not the one who talks the biggest talk or the one who has an axe to grind.

The ones we want on executive are the ones who are there, not for themselves but, for the Veterans and our community. We know it is a tough job but we want the ones who are willing to give their hearts (and half of their lives) for others.

Come out and vote for them.
