Ladies Auxiliary Report - May 2017

Happy Spring Comrades,

Your Ladies Auxiliary has been keeping busy as usual.  For the last couple of months immediately following our Beef on a Bun Nights we've hosted a Progressive Euchre - at our first one in February there were only 3 tables, but word of mouth worked wonders and the following month (March) we had 10 tables.  It's $5 to register and depending on the turn-out generous prizes are handed out for top scores and most lone hands.  So come out and enjoy a wonderful Beef or Lasagna dinner and stay for a great night of cards.

I am writing this report immediately after returning from our April meeting and I can now tell you the results of our yearly elections.  President: Debbie Cooley,  Vice President: Terry Kobylinski, Treasurer:  Gerry Hopkins, Secretary:  Janice Mancini, Sgt. at Arms:  Barb Smith, Executive:  Marie Kobylinski, Geri McPhail, Judy Hall-Wright, Liz Portier, Terrie Gubbins. And Terry Kobylinski is also our Sports Officer.  Hope I haven't forgotten any one.

Our Treasurer Gerry is now home recuperating from knee surgery and we are all wishing her a speedy recovery.

Sports wise:  Terry K. and Terrie G. are heading to Kingston for Provincial Singles and Doubles darts on the 22nd of this month (April) so best of luck to them.  We had 2 teams that played in District team darts in Stoney Creek on April 1st and all we can say is we had a good time.  The same for the team that went on to District cribbage.  Just a lovely afternoon playing cards in Font Hill.

At the Honors and Awards luncheon, congrats to Shirley Arnold for receiving her 45 year pin, to Stephanie Cooley for receiving her 5 year pin and also her 10 year Legion pin.  And to Janice Mancini for receiving a Certificate of Appreciation.  And thanks to all my Ladies for presenting me with a Certificate of Merit.

Our next Beef Night is April 28th and the final one (until September) is May 26th.  Hope to see y'all there and please feel welcome to stay and play euchre after.

Sincerely Debbie Cooley - President of the Br. 36 Ladies Auxiliary 

 






Ladies Auxiliary Report - February 2017

I hope this finds everyone recovering nicely after the holiday season and enjoying a good 2017 so far.  Now it's back to business as usual.  At our meeting last tuesday (January 10) we welcomed Carly Arnold, and also welcomed back Barb Smith into our happy little group.

All reports from our Christmas fund raiser have been very favorable and have been distributed to all local seniors and families that needed a boost to their Christmas spirits.

Sports:  We played Cribbage yesterday (January 15) and our team came in 2nd.  Congratulations to my teammates Dana Dilabbio, Sue Sklepowicz and Barb Smith.  We are hosting Team Darts on February 12th here at the branch.  Good luck to all participants.

Beef Nights are back again starting January 27th, and again on February 24th.

Ladies (for those who missed January's meeting), the meeting for February will be on the 8th.  It would normally be the 14th, but some of us would like to spend Valentine-s with our loved ones so it has been rescheduled.  The 8th February is a Wednesday, but was the closest to our normal date for the majority of us.

Again - all the best for 2017 to you and yours.

Debbie Cooley - President Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary


Ladies Auxiliary Report - November 2016

Greetings from your Ladies Auxiliary 

Hope everyone had a great summer. Now it's time to jump right back into business as usual.

Sports:  We had four of our ladies play in the Singles and Doubles Dart tournament in September.  The Doubles team of Terry Kobylinski and Terry Gubbins came in third and will be moving on, I believe in November.  Terry Kobylinski also took First place in the singles.   Congratulations Ladies. Well played.

On Saturday 15th October our team that placed fourth in Euchre in June will be going on to District Euchre in Acton.  Good Luck to Debbie Cooley, Janice Mancini, Dana Dilabbio and Sue Sklepowicz. 

We are also hosting the Zone sports meeting 16th October with a Fun Day to follow with both darts and cards.

Beef on a Bun Nights have started back already.  We will not be serving Perogies and cabbage rolls this 28th October but have decided to try Octoberfest Sausage and sauerkraut.  Please mark on your calendars the following dates for Beef nights: 25th November, 27th November, 27th January,24th February, 24th March, 28th April and 26th.  Hope to see you there. 

And last but never least, our annual Christmas draw will start to sell tickets on 3rd November for the full month.  Top prize this year is a little beer fridge with 2 gift certificates of $100.00 each for the Beer store and the L.C.B.O., some cheer to celebrate the Christmas season.  This draw helps us help the ones in our community that most need it at this time of year so please come out and buy tickets.  If you'd like to donate a prize as well please contact our Convener Judy Hall-Wright at 905-627-8374 or myself at 905-393-6341.  Thank you.

The final draw L.A. draw will be made during the Branch's annual Sports Turkey draw to be held on 2nd December, 2016.                                                       

Yours in Comradeship

Debbie Cooley - President, Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary


Ladies Auxiliary Report - August 2016                                                                 

Well, another fiscal year has come to an end for the Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary.

Elections were held and there are no changes to our Executive committee.  I'd like to thank all my ladies for the wonderful support and for doing their individual, voluntary jobs with such a seemingly effortless and efficient way, that makes my job easier.  I have such faith in you all that it's not hard to brag to any and all about how wonderful it is to work with such a fantastic group of girls.

We initiated a new member in May - Welcome to Liz Pottier.  We have passed a new application for membership in June and Debra Firthe will be initiated in September.  I also have it on good authority that we will be welcoming back a member from the past (Barb Smith) very soon.

We hosted L.A. Euchre on the 19th of June and our team of Janice Mancini, Dana Dilabbio, Sue Sklepowicz and myself came in 4th  so we will be going on to the District Euchre Tournament sometime this fall.

Meetings will recommence on Tuesday, 13th Septemenber at 7 pm in the front lounge.  Our Beef on a Bun nites will restart on Friday, 23rd September.  If I don't see or speak to you before that, don't forget that along with the Beef and Lasagna dishes, we will also serve Perogies and Cabbage Rolls at the Friday, 28th October event.

Here's wishing everyone a safe and wonderful summer.  See Y'all in the fall.

Debbie Cooley - Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President


News Flash: At the Ladies Auxiliary Elections held 12th April, 2016 all current Executive members were re-elected for the coming year.  Congratulations to everyone who volunteered and took part!


Ladies Auxiliary Report - May 2016

Happy Spring Everyone!  (I say this with tongue in cheek as I wait for a 15 - 20 cm. snowfall this afternoon).

As happens every year at this time your Auxiliary is preparing for a few final events to round off our 2015 -16 schedule.  On April 12th we will hold our annual Ladies Auxiliary elections, so ladies please think of where you would like to participate and step up to bat. 

We also have a very important Zone Convention meeting coming up on the 17th April, where all the Ladies Auxiliaries in our Zone will report to Command about our many accomplishments throughout the past year.

We will start selling tickets for our annual Spring BBQ draw on 4th April.  This draw has helped support our many charitable donations, so please help us help those that need our aid, and maybe get a new BBQ, utensils, meat order and condiments etc.. 

We have 2 Beef on a Bun nights left for this season on 22nd April and 27th May.  The Spring BBQ draw will be held at the 27th May Beef on a Bun night.   We hope to see everyone at both of these events.  Good food and good fun will be had by all.

Yesterday (April 2nd) the dart team of Debbie Cooley, Marie Kobylinski, Stephanie Cooley and Janice Mancini went to Br. 622 Stoney Creek and came in 8th out of 32 teams.  I'm not sure if it's enough to go on to Provincials in June but we had fun trying.  This was just one of the perks of joining the Auxiliary - gathering together for good times with good people and not only exchanging good cheer but some great ideas as well. 

We welcome any new-comers to participate, and bring any new ideas to our attention so that we may better serve our Branch and the surrounding community.

Hoping to see you around the Branch real soon.

Debbie Cooley - Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President


Ladies Auxiliary Report - February 2016

Happy New Year Everyone!  May 2016 be a great year for Branch 36 members and all their families and friends.

As our (the Ladies Auxiliary's) monthly meeting isn't till the day after this report is due, this should be short and sweet.

Thanks to conveners Judy Wright and Yvonne Palmer and our volunteers, our Annual Christmas Extravaganza draw was a great success.  This went to bringing many Veterans, seniors and others some holiday cheer.  A huge amount of this "Thank You" goes to all the donations to the draw and the buyers of tickets. Congrats to all the winners too.

Beef on a bun nights will resume again on January 22nd. Here's a list of the Beef Nights to mark on your new 2016 calendars. - Jan. 22, Feb. 26, Mar. 18, April 22 and May 27. ***PLEASE NOTE: Yes our Beef Nights are usually the 4th Friday of the month but because Easter is in March this year and Good Friday is the 4th Friday, we moved it to the 3rd Friday. Hope to see you all there.

Ladies, if you would like to join our group and get this great feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction from serving our branch, our veterans and our community, please talk to any current member and we'll get you set up with an application a.s.a.p.  Personally speaking, as a member of over 35 years, you really can't get a better feeling.


Ladies Auxiliary Report - November 2015

Dear Comrades.

I hope this finds you all well.  Our new season has started and our first Beef on a Bun nite (Sept. 25th) was a great success thanks to all both behind the scenes and those who came with their appetites.  Our October Beef nite on the 23rd will also have perogies by Terry Kobylinski and cabbage rolls by Terrie Gubbins recipes.  The last couple of years this October event has been very successful.

November's Beef nite is on the 27th and as there isn't one in December as it's too close to Christmas our next one isn't till January 22nd.  Again thanks to all our patrons for helping us raise monies for the branch and our community.

Our annual Christmas fund raiser is right this minute getting under way, thanks to convenor Judy Hall-Wright.  Some of our local venders, venues and our own members have already been donating prizes.  Tickets should be available by the end of Oct./beginning of Nov. and will be sold right up to and including the night of the draw at the branch's annual Christmas turkey draw (Dec. 4th I believe).

Please come out and put your tickets into whatever prize you'd like to win.  These proceeds go towards supporting a family thru out this holiday season and also towards some veteran seniors that don't have any family nearby.  So please come out and make some very deserving people have a better holiday season at a time when things can get very stressful.

Again thanks to my very hard working Ladies and to all our supporters.

Yours in Comradeship

Debbie Cooley - President, Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President


Ladies Auxiliary Report - August 2015                                                            

Greetings Comrades, 

I hope this finds you all enjoying a great summer and sucessfully keeping cool during this heat wave.  The auxiliary is on vacation too, for July and August, but are looking forward to beginning another banner year starting on Sept. 8th.

Sportswise, we had to forgo our trip to Kirkland Lake on June 5th due to conflicts in schedules for 3 of our 4 players.  One of the conflicts was Gerry Hopkins' knee surgery. We are hoping she is enjoying a very relaxing and recuperating summer. 

In Euchre on June 21st at Branch 163 Mount Hamilton our team of Debbie Cooley, Janice Mancini, Marion Hunt and Dana Dilabbio came in first!!  Congrats ladies.  Now when we get back to business in September we'll have to book next year's Euchre tournament for here at our own Branch.

Also coming in September our Beef on a Bun nights start up again on the 25th.  Remember the 4th Friday of every month is Beef night, (with the exception of December as that's too close to Christmas).  We also have the Ladies Single and Doubles tournament near the end of that month too. 

In the next Bullytin I will be listing all coming events for the next few months.

Till then... 

Yours in Comradeship,

Debbie Cooley - Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President


Ladies Auxiliary Report - May 2015

Hello Comrades All,

Your Auxiliary has been keeping pretty busy.

Congrats to all the recipients of years of service award pins at the Honours and Awards dinner.  It was also the Auxiliary's 70th Birthday party, and a special congrats to Kay Southall for her 50 years of service pin and to Sue Sklepowicz for receiving the Trillium pin.

The Beef on Bun nights are doing very well.  We've recently added Poutine to the menu.  Only $3 for a plate of fries with gravy and mozzarella cheese on top.  $5 if you want shredded beef added (this is a great meal in itself).  Our Beef Nights are soon coming to an end for this season.  Only April 24th and May 22nd left to get your fill of our delicious beef or lasagna, then you'll have to wait until September 25th.

Sports wise we are doing great.  Terry Kobylinski will be heading to Provincial Singles Darts on the weekend of our Beef Night on Friday, 24th April, so be patient with us as one of our chief cooks goes to Smith Falls to represent us all.  (Not to worry, Terry has been training a few more volunteers to cover for her.)

Both of our dart teams are going on to District darts on April 11th  in Georgetown.   So good luck to Terry, Terrie, Dana and Sue AND also to Debbie, Marie, Janice and Stephanie.  Provincials for this event are going to be in London.

In Cribbage, our team of Debbie, Gerry, Terry and Terrie came in 3rd at Districts in Ridgeway on March 14th so will be going to Kirkland Lake for Provincials on June 6th.  The best of luck to all teams representing Dundas Branch 36 of the Royal Canadian Legion.  And have loads of fun too.

Debbie Cooley - Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President


Ladies Auxiliary Report - February 2015

I hope this finds everyone recuperating from a very Merry Christmas and New Year's holiday.  Now it's back to business as usual.

Our annual Christmas fund raiser was its usual success.  We were able to do quite a bit for our vets and community to assure that they enjoyed some Christmas cheer.  Together with the Salvation Army we helped a local family out with food, drink and some gifts.  We put together some Christmas gifts for some seniors in the Blackadar Nursing Home that have no family to think of them at this time of year.

I would again like to thank everyone who contributed their time, handy work, crafts and donations of prizes and gift certificates.  They truly help us to help others in a more substantial way.

Two of our ladies, Gerry Hopkins and Terrie Gubbins, have done an amazing job visiting our local elementary schools and getting letters from them out to our vets to thank them for their services to our great country.  Great Job Ladies !

Sports:  Terrie Kobylinski is now going on to Provincial Singles Darts in April, and we hosted Zone Cribbage on 11th January.  Our team of Gerry Hopkins, Terry Kobylinski, Terrie Gubbins and myself came in 6th and will be going on to our District level tournament in Ridgeway in March.

We have Zone Team Darts coming up on 15th February at Stoney Creek Branch 662.  We usually have fun playing in this, so Good Luck Ladies.

Till next Bullytin, yours in comradeship

Debbie Cooley - Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President

 




Ladies Auxiliary Report - November 2014

Hello from your Ladies Auxiliary.  Well, we've hit the new business year running.  Our September meeting was a poor turnout as we had a few still on vacation and a few that were under the weather,  but despite that we managed to get the ball rolling.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to our shut-ins and hope that we'll see them soon.

Our September 26th Beef Nite was very well received and we were kept hopping for nearly the full 2 hours.  Thanks to all for coming and we hope you will be there again for October 24th as we will not only have our usual beef and lasagna dinners but we will also be having our annual perogy and cabbage roll dinners on the menu.

The preparations for our annual Fund Raising event have also started in earnest.  Letters have gone out to all the local venues and crafters of Dundas and area.  Tickets should be ready to sell by the end of October and through November.  So come in and see what all the prizes are this year and put your tickets in whatever prizes you wish to win.  Our top prize this year is a laptop computer and wireless printer.  So come out and get your tickets and remember ALL proceeds from this draw go to our local veterans and community.

See you at the Legion

I hope this finds all enjoying or having had enjoyed a wonderful and safe summer season.  As I write this, it's only  just coming to the end of July.  It's very hard to believe that in about 6 very short weeks it will back to business as usual.

As always, we are constantly looking for ladies to join our little auxiliary and enjoy the satisfaction we all share in helping our Veterans and community.  There are a great many benefits that go with serving these most deserved recipients as well.  Feel free to contact or talk to any of our ladies at any time and see how you can get involved.

Monthly Beef on a Bun nights - on the third Friday of the month (26th September, 24th October and  28th November), where orders are taken from 5:30pm until 7:30pm.  There is no Beef on a Bun night in December as it's too close to Christmas.

7th Annual Penny Sale Fundraiser - Tickets will be available for you to buy and select which prize(s) you wish to win for the full month of November with the draws taking place at Branch 36's Annual Turkey draw on the first Friday in December(5th December).

The Ladies Auxiliary will start monthly meetings to discuss the distribution of funds raised to Veterans and the community.  Each meeting is held on the second Tuesday of the month (9th September, 14th October, 11th November and 9th December), at 7pm in the Wentworth room at the Branch and you are all invited to attend.

Oh yes, we can't forget that the Beef on a Bun menu in October will include Terry Kobylinski's famous perogies and cabbage rolls.  Please make sure you put all the dates listed above on your personal calendars and we'll see you at any or all of the events listed.  And thank you in advance for your wonderful support of our organization.

Ladies Auxiliary Report - February, 2014


The Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank everyone who donated to our annual draw, individuals and

businesses alike.  Without you we wouldn't be able to accomplish all of the things that we do each LA

season.  We would also like to thank all of the members who manned the tables throughout the

duration of the draw, handing out letters to our local businesses and doing any pick-ups required.

Lastly, we would like to thank Terry Kobylinski, Dana DiLabbio, Judy Hall-Wright and Jennifer Brooks for doing all the leg work to make it happen.

Because of our annual draw we were able to purchase Christmas gifts for seniors without families at Blackadar's Nursing Home.  We were also able to provide a Dundas family with Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas morning breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as enough Christmas gifts for a family of four and Boxing Day breakfast all through the Salvation Army.  When hearing about a Dundas family who lost everything in a fire right before Christmas we reached out and donated towards helping them.  We will be able to continue our increased donation to the Ontario Bursary to assist the students towards their education and in turn their futures.  It is planned to continue the Valentines for Vets as well.

This year we asked all of the elementary schools within the Dundas community if they would be interested in having their classes write a letter to a Veteran or a Soldier currently serving.  On Remembrance Day we went to the various schools and picked up a total of 153 letters.  We sent these letters to Veterans within our community as well as to Soldiers in various countries around the World.  We have received responses and those have been forwarded on to the schools.  It was quite an uplifting experience and we thank all of the students for taking the time to Remember.

Our upcoming Beef on a Bun nights are as follows:  January 24th, February 28th, March 28th, April 25th and May 23rd. 

Please watch for various additions from time to time.  Thank you for your ongoing support.

Zone Darts will be held on February 16th at Branch 551.  Good luck to all that attend.

We really need some new members to help us continue our efforts to serve our Branch and our community.  If you have any questions about becoming a member please call me and I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.  Believe it or not we're not all about making sandwiches.

Yours in Comradeship,

Terrie Gubbins - Branch 36 Ladies Auxiliary President


Ladies Auxiliary Report - November 2013 

 

We held our first Beef on a Bun night on Friday September 27th and it went over very well.  PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE FOR THE OCTOBER BEEF NIGHT.  Our October Beef Night will be held on Friday October 18th and it includes Beef on a Bun, Lasagna Roll Ups, Homemade Cabbage Rolls and Homemade Perogies.  So come on out and enjoy an evening of great food with some family, friend's or both.  There will be NO Beef Night held in December.

The November and January 2014 Beef on a Bun night will be back to the fourth Friday of the month.

 

We are striving to continue to give Christmas gifts to seniors in Dundas without any family who are in a local Dundas Nursing Home.  We are also hoping to continue to provide Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas Day breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as Christmas gifts for a family of four and Boxing Day breakfast for a Dundas Family in Need.  Your help and support would help us to meet this goal.

 

We attended the LA Singles and Doubles Zone Tournament at Br. 163.  Congratulations to Sue Sklepowicz & Dana DiLabbio for place third, Terry Kobylinski & Terrie Gubbins for placing 4th and Debbie & Stephanie Cooley for placing 5th in the Doubles.  Debbie Cooley also qualified to move on in the Singles.  They all will be going on to District in Welland on November 16th.  Good luck to everyone.

 

Please REMEMBER our Veterans on Remembrance Day!

Ladies Auxiliary Report - August 2013

                                                        

We hope everybody had a safe and healthy summer.  Another season is beginning and we're expecting to be busy as usual.  The Beef on Bun nights will continue as alwars on the following dates: September 27th, October 25th and November 22nd.  So mark these dates on your calendar and come out and enjoy some wonderful food with friends and family.  Throughout the season we will be adding different menu items to our usual Beef on a Bun night so please watch for these every now and then.

 

During the month of November our annual draw will hopefully take place as usual.  Please watch for any notices around the legion.  Last season because of the generous donations from our community and our members we were able to do some wonderful things.  We purchased Christmas gifts for seniors without families in Blackadar's Nursing Home.  We donated to the Salvation Army to be able to provide Christmas for a Dundas family in need and we also sent out Valentines to Vets.  We would love to see all of these projects keep going as well as increase if possible.  Hopefully we can once again give back to our community this coming season.

 

The sports season will start up again in September with the Singles and Doubles Zone Dart Tournament on September 22nd at Branch 58.  Good luck to all that participate.

 

We are desperate for members.  If you or anyone you know has any questions about joining the LA please don't hesitate to contact me.  We do some wonderful things with the resources we have and if you're interested in helping us help our community it would be great to have you.

 

Yours in Comradeship,

Ladies Auxiliary Report - April 2013

 

The Ladies Auxiliary have been busy this season thus far.  For Christmas we purchased gifts for seniors without any family.  We also supplied a family in need with food and gifts for Christmas.  In February we sent out Valentines for Vets to the legion members from World War II and the Korean War.  These Valentines were well received.

 

The April Beef on a Bun night had to be cancelled unfortunately.  The May Beef on a bun night will go ahead as normal.

 

The Honours & Awards night went well.  We handed out a 60 year pin for Ethel Lampman to her daughter Sandra Lampman, a 45 year pin to Nancy Gadoury, 20 year pins to Gerry Hopkins, Marie Kobylinski and Sharon Pivonka and a 10 year pin to Pat Raynsford.  We also handed out 3 Trillium pins to Gerry Hopkins, Terry Kobylinski and Terrie Gubbins.  Congratulations to all.

 

We have 2 dart teams attending Fonthill for the District Team Dart Tournament and we have the double team of Sue Skelpowicz and Dana Dilabbio as well as Terry Kobylinski for singles all going to Kirkland Lake at the end of April for Singles & Doubles Provinicials.  Good luck to all.

 

If you have any questions about the LA please don't hesitate to contact me.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.  This year we gave gifts to seniors without families in a local nursing home.   I dropped the gifts off at the nursing home so that the seniors would have them to open on Christmas morning.  We also gave a Dundas Family in need all the food they would need for the Christmas Holidays.  We want to see this increase in the upcoming seasons and would love to see your support in helping us achieve our goals.

Ladies Auxiliary Report - April, 2012                                     

 

The Ladies Auxiliary has been very busy these past few months with hosting many sporting events.  This is good for our LA as well as for the branch.  We hosted the District Team Dart Tournament on Saturday April 14th.  This brought 128 dart players from all around to our legion and we gave them a warm welcome.  On April 28th Terry Kobylinski and Terrie Gubbins will be attending the Provincial Singles and Doubles Dart Tournament in Aurora.  Good luck to all who are playing in these sporting events.

 

On April 22nd we hosted the LA Zone Convention which brought many comrades from other LA's to our branch.

 

Back on March the 3rd we celebrated our 67th Birthday in conjunction with the branch Honours

and Awards.  At this event we handed out the following service pins:  Marg Festing 50 years,

Shirley Arnold 40 years and Marion Hunt 15 years.  The following people were unable to attend but will be receiving their pin in the near future:  Ruth Rivers 55 years and Arleen Gross 35 years.  Congratulations to all and thank you for your continued support. 

 

The Beef on a Bun, Lasagna roll-up nights have been consistent and going well.  The final nights for this season will be Friday April 27th and Friday May 25th.  Please come out and enjoy a great meal and help support the Branch all at the same time.  Watch for notices around the legion and in your email as May just might bring a surprise.

Ladies Auxiliary Report - February 2012

 

The Ladies Auxiliary has been very busy this year.  Our Beef on a Bun nights have been going extremely well and the addition of the Lasagna Roll-ups has been a wonderful one.  Moving forward we will be offering sliced beef on a bun as well as pulled beef on a bun

for those guests that would like one or other.  The dates for our upcoming Beef nights

are:  February 24th, March 23rd, April 27 and May 25th.  Thank you for all of your support, 

we greatly appreciate it.

 

Our annual draw was a phenomenal success.  A huge thank you to Dana Dilabbio for

taking on this huge task and to Suzie Mellen for all the wrapping, and pulling it all

together.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizations and members

who made a donation towards our draw this year.  Without you the draw would not be a success.  Many thanks also to those of you that took your time out to man the table and

sell the tickets.  Your contribution is invaluable.  Lastly a great big thank you to the bartenders who helped us out in many, many ways.  We thank everyone for their support

and help.

 

Do you have extra Canadian Tire money lying around?  If so, consider donating it to our auxiliary and we can put it to good use.  We will now be collecting Canadian Tire money

as an ongoing fundraiser to help achieve our goals.  Please watch for a box in the legion

to put your money.

 

This year we are hosting the LA Zone Cribbage Tournament, the LA Zone Dart Tournament

and the LA District Dart Tournament.  This means we have a very busy few months ahead

of us.  Good luck to all players in all of the tournaments.

 

The Ladies Auxiliary is always looking for members.  If you have any questions in regards

to our organization please don't hesitate to contact me.  Also, keep your eye out for an upcoming flyer all about the LA.  It will hopefully be very informative and full of information

all about who we are and what we do.  Lastly, if you have any suggestions for us we would welcome your thoughts.
