OUR TUESDAYS” MEAT/BAKE DRAWS START AT 6:30pm ALONG
WITH CHASE THE QUEEN AND 50/50 DRAW STARTING AT 6:00pm

Well we are happy to WELCOME BACK many of our members who have been travelling this great country of ours. We had a good number of our members travel to the Maritimes this year and from the pictures and smiles they must have had a great time.

Congratulations to ANAVETS No 1 on their 100th anniversary. Many of us were out of town but we heard that we missed a great day of fun and comradeship. On Saturday, September 23rd some of us went to No 4 Le-gion to support Vets Canada and No 4 Legion’s Chili Cook-off. There were over 10 different home made chili dishes entered into the contest and all were delicious. That being said Vets Canada entries won 1st prize (RG Hemlow) and 2nd prize (Joan Lippik). 3rd prize went to No 4 Legion; but, the real winners are the Veterans who will be helped with the monies raised ($1,100 approx.). BZ to all who supported this function.

We should have our new group name soon (TBA). However, the members of our group that you see on Tues-days at the meat/baking draws are the same core group of volunteers and members that were here before work-ing to assist Veterans and other organizations who also do the same.

Our fundraising goal at the present time is to raise enough funds to adopt 10 Veterans at Deer Lodge Centre for Christmas. All of us, which includes those of you who support our meat/bake draws, help to make a differ-ence. We appreciate your continued support.

We have also secured March 24, 2018 for our Horse Races Evening. Mark the date on your calendar—you won’t want to miss it.
