Terrace Legion keeps marching forward

It’s not impossible but it certainly is difficult to teach old dogs new tricks.

It’s not impossible but it certainly is difficult to teach old dogs new tricks.

After most of a life time of going to the monthly Legion meeting on the second Tuesday night of the month, the change to holding the meetings the second Saturday of the month at 1 p.m. got the best of me and I FORGOT.

Apparently a lot of others did as well and there was no quorum so the meeting could not be held.

I apologize to our Executive who work so hard to run our Branch – it will not happen again. I have taken my this year’s calendar and next year’s as well and put a big circle around the second Saturday of each month.

May I suggest that all our members out there do likewise? We will all meet at the Branch on Nov. 14. It is the last meeting prior to elections so we should start thinking about an Executive for next year.

The promised Trivia Challenge evenings will be commencing at the Branch at 7 p.m. Saturday Oct. 17.

Steak night held on the first Friday of each month continues to be extremely popular. It is nice that young families can dine out with their children at a reasonable price and join their friends for an exceptionally tasty meal.

The regular Saturday Meat Draws are a fun time for all. Last Saturday, a young lady celebrating her birthday at the Branch got an unexpected present and was a two time winner at the Meat Draw.

A CORRECTION – the Halloween Dance will be held on Friday Oct. 30th not Saturday the 31st as previously reported. Come on out for an enjoyable evening with your friends – perhaps you will be the lucky winner of one of the many prizes. Wear a costume – it adds to the fun of the event and gives you a chance for a prize.

Don’t forget the Annual Buster Paterson Memorial Pool Tournament in the branch the weekend of Oct. 24/25. For further information, you can call the Branch where the sign-up sheet is or contact Doug Misfeldt at 250-638-1827.

The Executive and Membership of the Branch would like to express their thanks to the Tillicum Theatre for their very generous donation of Marquee Letters. It has made a world of difference to the people trying to post notices on our outside board and is greatly appreciated.

As we near the 11th of November and the Annual Poppy Campaign, we ask our members and all friends of the Legion to keep the thoughts of our Veterans in their hearts.

Your generous donations are welcomed but it is your presence and the gift of your time that is needed. We have Veterans in our area that are in their 90s and we have Veterans in their 30s – any or all of them could need our support.

We Will Remember Them
